Web registration begins in March for Summer session courses. 

Web registration begins in June for Fall/Winter session courses and is available only to continuing Western University students who have submitted an Intent to Register form. 

Intent to Register

Students choose their program/module/degree(s) during the Intent to Register period (usually early February to late March). There will be information sessions available during this time. 

Check the Office of the Registrar's website in late January for details. Department Counsellors provide counselling regarding course selection. 

See also, Intent to Register, further details.

Academic timetables can be viewed on the registrar's site.

Registration Change

After the Intent to Register period, program/module/degree changes require the submission of a Change of Status form. These forms are available from our academic counselling office and must be completed for:

  • Changes in academic load (e.g. full-time to part-time)
  • Changes of degree objective (e.g. honours to 3 year)
  • Changes in program/module(s)
  • Changes in Faculty of registration
  • Complete withdrawal from the university
