BASc Course Selection & Waivers

WAIVERS for FRAN Courses

(Updated Sept 7, 2022)

WAIVERS:  In the Department of Family Relations & Applied Nutrition (FRAN), waivers and enrolment are centrally managed by the Undergraduate Program Assistant, Lorraine, fran.undergraduate@uoguelph.ca. 

Instructors in the FRAN department do NOT sign course waivers.   

When requesting enrolment information or a  waiver for a course:  

  1. Use your uoguelph.ca account   2. State you student ID# and program.   You can download the Course Waiver Request form.

Please notefran.undergraduate@uoguelph.ca  email is monitored Monday - Friday, 8:30am to 4:00.   

Here's what is helpful to know about obtaining a signed course waiver:

  • Waivers are not required for 1st year courses. 
  • Some courses are restricted to BASc majors only. Waivers will not be signed for courses that are restricted in this way.
  • For other courses, there are Priority Access restrictions, which may be lifted during the course selection period depending on available space.  Details of which courses have Priority Access restrictions are below.  Note: that we will not sign course waivers while Priority Access restrictions are in place.
  • Generally speaking, courses/sections/classes that are full/closed cannot be overloaded beyond the planned number of available seats/spaces. 
  • If you receive a completed and appropriately signed waiver, you will need to submit it to Enrolment Services, es@uoguelph.ca for processing as soon as possible. 

CREDIT OVERLOADING:Taking more that 2.5 credits in a semester or credit overloading is not something we advise or support as it does not foster learning, academic success, or good mental health.  We especially do not support overloading in a practicum semester because practicums are a heavy load. The rare time we consider permitting a credit overload is if a student has exceptional need, e.g. they are in their last semester and need one course to graduate. For this reason plan your courses carefully assuming you can't overload. That said, you can try overloading yourself on the last day of the add period without special permission if there is still space in the course and you have the pre-requisites. 

 

SELECTION PERIOD

Fall 2022 undergraduate course selection will begin June 16, 2022 based on the course selection windows (number of completed and in-progress credits).  New students can begin enrolling in courses on June 28, 2022. All students are encouraged to select courses as soon as possible after their window opens. Course selection will continue until September 16, 2022; however, students who do not enroll by July 11 may find that their desired or required course sections are no longer available (closed/full).

To find your window see: Course Selection Windows Fall 2022.  If a course is full when you go onto WebAdvisor, please check WebAdvisor again later and register when spaces become available. 

PLEASE SELECT COURSES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTER YOUR WINDOW OPENS.  FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN NOT BEING ABLE TO REGISTER IN NEEDED AND WANTED COURSES. 

If a course is full when you go onto WebAdvisor, please check WebAdvisor again later and register when spaces become available.  If it has been a few days without successfully registering, please contact the Undergraduate Program Assistant whose contact information is below.  Enrolment of courses is managed by opening blocks of spots at a time rather than immediately opening to the full capacity. 

Fall 22 Courses Being Offered:

**Continue to monitor WebAdvisor as sometimes a spot may open up before the last day to add courses on September 16, 2022.
