Winter Term FAQs
Have questions about the Winter Term? Please see the list below for answers to commonly asked questions.
When can I add a winter term class?
You can add winter term classes now. The deadline to add a winter term class is January 18, 2019. This is also the deadline date to drop a winter term class without financial penalty.
How much money will I get back if I drop a class?
If you drop a winter term class by January 18, you will receive a full refund. If you drop between January 19 and February 1, you will receive a 50% refund. If you drop between February 2 and March 1, you will receive a 25% refund.
When is the last day I can drop a winter term class or a full year class?
The deadline date to drop winter term classes and full year classes is March 2nd.
How do I change sections of my full year course?
If you want to change your lecture, lab or tutorial section of a full year class, you need to get permission from the department offering the class. DO NOT attempt to do this yourself on SOLUS as you could mistakenly drop the class.
I am an upper year and need some help with my courses / schedule. Who can I talk to?
Students can stop by our office in Dunning Hall anytime between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm Monday through Friday from January 7 - 18 to speak with an Academic Advisor. Advisors get quite busy during the first two weeks of term, therefore will be running on a first come first serve basis, so we recommend that you get to the office early for assistance.
The class I want to enrol in is full. Can I still enrol in it?
We know how disappointing this can be but we cannot over-enrol any classes. Our course enrolment capacities are based on room size and strict fire code regulations which means we cannot over-enrol any classes. However, if there is a waitlist available, you can add yourself to the waitlist by selecting "Wait List if Class is Full" when you add it to your shopping cart.
How can I add myself to a waitlist?
Add yourself to the waitlist by selecting "Wait List if Class is Full" when you add the course to your shopping cart. Make sure you proceed to "Finish Enrolling." To view your status on the waitlist, look under "My Class Schedule" (list view).
Note that waitlists are not available for online courses. If you find that an on-campus course that should have a waitlist is showing up as Closed, this means that both the course and the waitlist are at capacity and as such you won't be able to add yourself to the list.
