Before you graduate with your 15.0 or 20.0 credit degree, all students must fulfill the following requirements.
Common degree requirements (all programs except students registered in “OLD” degree program structure):
1. All students must meet the admission and progression requirements for degree modules
2. 5.0 courses numbered 0001-1999.
3. 1.0 course from each of Category A (Social Science/Other), Category B (Arts) and Category C (Science)*.
* Brescia students should check with an Academic Advisor or the Registrar’s Office (519-858-5151) for a listing of acceptable Science courses.
4. No more than 14.0 courses in one subject area may be counted towards 20.0 credit B.A.
5. At least 13.0 senior courses (numbered 2000-4999).
6. 2.0 Essay courses with at least 1.0 at the senior level (2000-4999)
Step 3: Plan Your Timetable
(a) Using the Timetable Planner, work out a conflict-free timetable. Remember, all full-time students may take a maximum of 5.0 courses. In building your timetable, you may not have an “in-balanced” load. This means that you are restricted to 5.0 courses in each term (Fall and Winter).
(b) Ensure that you have selected a minimum of 3.0 Brescia courses. If your selected courses are offered at Brescia, you are expected to take the course at Brescia. In building your timetable, you may wish to schedule your Brescia and your required courses first.
If you are unable to enroll in a Brescia section of a course, you may obtain permission to take the course at King’s, Huron or Western. Courses that are not offered at Brescia, may be taken at King’s, Huron or Western and do not require permission. Students are advised to select their courses carefully. Many departments at Brescia have created a rotating schedule of course offerings to ensure that Brescia students can fulfill their residency requirement. Within a students’ degree program only 40% of the courses can be taken through the main campus.
When filling out the Course Selection Worksheet, be sure to include the following information in the appropriate column:
(i) Subject and Course Number.
Example: English 2033E
(ii) You must select the LECTURE component of each course. Some courses may also have a Tutorial or Laboratory.
(iii) Class Number for each course you wish to take. Lectures, laboratories and tutorials will each have a different class number.
English 2033E 530 (Lecture) = 12200 and 531 (Tutorial) = 12202
or for a course without another component: Family Studies 2200 530 = 12292 (only)
Step 4: Course Registration
On the web: Web registration can be accessed through the Western Student Services Center at https://student.uwo.ca. To access the system you will need:
- Your Student Number and PIN
- Your Western username and Password and a valid appointment time
See “Accessing Student Center” for more information
- A completed Course Selection Worksheet to use as a reference guide during web registration. It may be useful to select a couple of alternate courses if your first choice is unavailable. You will be able to change you course selections throughout the summer on the web.
By mail or fax through the Brescia Registrar’s Office: mail or fax your completed Course Selection Worksheet to the Brescia Registrar’s Office. Fax: (519) 858-5137
If you require assistance when registering, you may contact the UWO Help Line at (519) 661-2100 during regular office hours or the Brescia Registrar’s Office. Our office hours are 8:00am-4:00pm, Monday-Friday, (519) 858-5151 (Registration Hotline).
Step 5: Confirmation of Courses
For Web Registration:
Check your timetable on the Web Registration panels. Once you add or drop courses on the web, your record WILL BE UPDATED IMMEDIATELY. After submitting or revising your course selections, check the STATUS area to ensure that each course was successfully added/dropped.
For mail or fax registration:
If you submitted your course requests through Brescia’s Registrar’s Office, confirmation of your courses will be e-mailed, mailed or faxed to you as soon as your worksheet has been processed. Any changes to your timetable will be available to view on the web only. You may make changes to your courses once they are loaded on your record.
Step 6: Tuition and Fees Payment
Fees are due August 13, 2012. Students will be mailed a fee bill indicating projected fees. If paying by installments, the second term fees are due by January 7, 2013. Refer to the Brescia Fee Schedule for more information on installment payments and payment options.
For more information regarding wire transfers from outside of Canada, contact Lynn Page in the Business Office. If you decide to cancel your registration, please call the Brescia Registrar’s Office as soon as possible, (519) 858-5151.
Students who have applied for OSAP by June 30, 2012 and have been notified of their entitlement, will receive an automatic deferral of fees until the loan documents have been received at Brescia University College for pick-up by the student. No deferment will be made for students appealing OSAP after a “nil” assessment has been received.
Brescia students who have been awarded a Brescia scholarship should deduct the value of their scholarship from their fee payment.
