Department of Mathematics Special Permission Information

Special Permissions Information

Special Permissions, once granted, can take up to five business days to appear on a student's academic record.  Once the permission appears, students must contact student services at https://studentservices.uwo.ca/callBack/ to have the course manually added.

If you have any questions about Special Permissions for Applied Math, Calculus or Math courses, please contact math-inquiry@uwo.ca.
