If you are planning on returning in September, you must complete and submit an Intent to Register (ITR) form. By completing an ITR form, you are letting Western and Huron know that 1) you are returning and; 2) the program that you plan to take next year. If you don’t complete ITR, you won’t be able to register for courses.

Why do I need to do an ITR?

If you plan to return in September, you need to fill out your online Intent to Register form.

During the Adjudication period in May when your final grades are available, you will be assessed for the eligibility of your choices submitted on the Intent to Register form. This adjudication triggers an online appointment time for you if you are eligible to continue.

If you do not complete an online Intent to Register form by March 31st at 11:59pm (EST), you will have to submit a late Intent to Register form on paper and your access to registration will be delayed.

 

What is the purpose of ITR?

Intent to Register asks you 3 simple questions about your plan for September 2017:

1)      What Faculty you will Register in

  • If you are continuing at Huron, select Huron as your Faculty from the drop-down menu.

2)      What type of degree are you pursuing?

3)      What Modular Combination are you interested in doing?

 

How do I submit an ITR?

The online form becomes available in early February through Student Center. For step-by-step instructions, click here.

If you indicate a module/program on main campus or one of the other affiliates (Brescia or King’s), we recommend you indicate a module at Huron as well (i.e. first choice is a MOS stream on main campus, second choice is an Economics module at Huron).

The following students will need to complete a paper ITR:

  • New concurrent degree students (continuing concurrent students can do it online)
  • Re-registrants (students not registered this year i.e. in 2016-17)
  • Post degree modules
  • Second degree students

 

What if I don’t meet the entry requirements for the module/degree I requested?

If you don’t meet the entry requirements for the module/degree options you requested, you will be registered in an alternative program in May (often BA Major in Philosophy for students registering for second year).

You will need to include/repeat courses in the future that will make you eligible for the module/degree you wish to pursue.

You may need to contact Academic Advising to discuss your course selection after adjudication in May and before web registration. This will be noted in the comments on your grade report.

What happens if I’m taking a course in the summer that is a prerequisite for the module I wish to pursue in the 2017/18 academic year?

Your academic record will be reviewed (adjudicated) in May. Your eligibility for the requested module/degree will be based on courses completed in 2016/17 and on the assumption that you’ll successfully complete the courses you are taking in the summer. You will be adjudicated again, after completion of the summer courses, to determine if you are eligible for your requested module/degree.

A note on MOS: if you did not meet the entry requirements for the MOS module you requested, but you are completing a summer course towards the module, you must let Huron Academic Advising know that you wish to be reconsidered for MOS following the completion of your summer course. Email huronsss@uwo.ca with your request for reconsideration.

 

How do I know what module to choose or courses to take for my module?

The official version of the Academic Calendar is found online at www.westerncalendar.uwo.ca. Huron module choices are found by choosing ‘Affiliated University Colleges’ on the navigation bar and clicking on ‘Huron University College’.

Scroll down to select the appropriate department and from there, select the module you are interested in. You will be able to see the specific courses required for that module and the links will take you to the course descriptions in the calendar.

A reminder on the residency requirement: during the academic year, students are required to complete 60% of their course load at Huron (i.e. if you are registered in 5.0 credits during the academic year, 3.0 of those credits are to be taken at Huron).

 

What happens if my module requirements have changed?

Sometimes a discipline will review their modules and change the module requirements. If this happens, you can still follow the module from the year in which you entered the program. If you have any questions about this, you can contact the office at huronsss@uwo.ca.

 

When can I register for summer courses?

Current Western students wishing to enroll in courses for the Summer term are required to term activate themselves at least 72 hours prior to adding courses. This is done through the Summer Activation service through Student Center. Summer activation will be available from February 6, 2017 and the first day for online course registration for the Summer term (Summer Evening, Distance Studies, Intersession, Summer Day) is March 2, 2017 (*note – this date is subject to change).

To term activate for the summer:

Log-in to Student Center > Scroll to Student Services Links (right hand side) > Click on Summer and PT Activation


What marks do I need to eligible to return in 2017/18?

Progression requirements are found in the Academic Calendar. If you meet your progression requirements, you must achieve the minimum mark(s) in prerequisite courses to enter the module/degree requested on your Intent to Register. You will find out if you are accepted into your module/degree when you access your grade report online in June.

How do I access my grade report?

Your grade report, which includes final marks and report comments, will be accessible online through Student Center after you have been adjudicated. Play close attention to your grade report comments and follow the instructions (if any are given).

How do I appeal a final grade after accessing my grade report?

See the Academic Calendar. There is a deadline (noted in the calendar) for appealing marks and/or requesting academic relief.

 

Can I repeat a course?

A course repeat is any course previously attempted and recorded at Western. A course attempt having a passing grade may only be repeated once. A course attempt having a failing grade may only be repeated twice. Grades (including failures) for all course attempts will appear on the transcript and will be included in the accumulation of course attempts and maximum failures allowed. All but the most recent course attempt will appear on the transcript as ‘RNC’ (Repeated, No Credit) and will be excluded from cumulative average calculations used for progression requirements.

 

What do I do if I want to change my module after I complete my Intent to Register?

During the ITR period, you may go online and make changes to your original selection(s) at any time. Once the ITR period is over, you will need to contact Academic Advising (email huronsss@uwo.ca) to see if the changes can be made.
