Things at King's Summer Edition

 

Welcome to our Summer Edition of Things at King's! We'll send these periodically throughout the summer so keep an eye on your Western student email account.


Spring Convocation is fast approaching! This year's Baccalaureate Exercises on June 10th will begin with a brunch at 10:15 a.m. in the Darryl J. King Student Life Centre at King's.

Academic Counselling Closure

There will be no Academic Counselling available from May 12th - May 23rd due to Adjudication. If you require assistance during this time, you may email academic.dean@uwo.ca or refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page.

 

As you move towards your next academic year, please follow these important guidelines to ensure that you receive information about your academic standing and other pertinent information during the summer:

 

Student Centre 

  1. Update your current address and phone number under "Personal Information"
  2. Check your grades under "My Academics" > "View my Grades"
  3. In June, check your adjudication comments under "View my Grades" > click on the "Grade Report" tab > see "Remarks". These remarks will indicate:
    • If you are eligible for your requested program/module(s)
    • If you have been placed On Probation
    • If you have you been Required to Withdraw from the University

Please see Progression Requirements from the Western Academic Calendar for more information.

 

UWO Email

  1. If your UWO email account is full, be sure to clean it out as the University sends important information to your UWO email account
  2. Check your UWO email for a notification in June alerting you that your course registration window has been posted to the Student Centre. Depending on the year that you are enrolled in, you will be able to select courses as early as or at any time after the following:
    • Year 4 - June 23rd
    • Year 3 - July 7th
    • Year 2 - July 15th

*** Your appointment time is your earliest web registration date. You can continue registering after this point, but it is recommended you utilize your scheduled appointment time for best course selection.

Hints when applying under the full-time program: 
  • You will need your Ontario Access Number (OAN) and your password

My King's Experience, Co-Curricular Record

  

The deadline for adding 2013-2014 activities to your co-curricular record is May 30th. We have worked hard to include most co-curricular activities available on campus in the system. However, if you are not able to find an activity, please contact wccr@uwo.ca and send us the name of the activity (i.e., LEP), your role in that activity (i.e., Module Facilitator), and the name and email address of the staff/faculty member at King's who is responsible for that activity.

 

Make sure you are adding activities associated with King's, when it is a King's activity. We are working in collaboration with Brescia, Huron, and Western. In the system you may find the same activity (i.e., Orientation Week - Soph) attached to each campus, so be sure to select the correct one.
