Western offers a variety of programs and supports for all students.


First-Year Undergraduate Students

Attend Summer Academic Orientation (SAO)

Summer Academic Orientation helps first-year main-campus undergraduate students with selecting and registering for their courses in-person or over the phone (if you are outside of London or Canada). To participate, students must register in advance.

NOTE: If you are attending one of Western's affiliated colleges (Brescia, Huron, or King's), check with your college to learn about summer orientation programs that are available to you.

Register for Courses Online

Select and register for your courses online through Student Center during the online course registration period.

All students may use the Web Registration process until the deadline. After that date, you must follow the Add/Drop/Swap process.

The Office of the Registrar provides a Step by Step Guide, which includes video tutorials, on how to register for your courses through Student Center.

Call the Student Central Helpline at 519-661-2100 if you require assistance with course registration using Western's Student Center system. They will be open for extended hours on select dates in June and July to assist new students with course registration and to answer questions about academic life at Western. Visit the Student Central Office webpage in mid-June for details about their extended hours.

For questions about course selection and/or academic progression please contact your Department or Faculty.
