What to do when your program/module is changed
When you find you’ve been put into a program that’s different from the one you asked for, check the following tips for what you need to do next:
Check the Admission Requirements section of the module/program you asked for during Intent to Register. Compare this to your own academic performance in 2012-13. Make note of the requirements you didn’t meet.
- You may need to repeat a specific course to meet those requirements [e.g. to increase your mark or replace a failed course].
- You may need to increase your overall average on the ‘principal’ courses [e.g. by repeating one or more courses to achieve higher grades].
- You may need to take another course that’s required for admission to that module/program [e.g. a course you are missing right now].
- You may simply need to do well on your second year courses and reapply for your preferred module/program next year. [e.g. see BMSc admission in year 3]
Take the appropriate action to solve the problem if you want to reapply for the program/module you were not admitted to for 2014-15.
Check the module requirements for the program/modules you’ve been put into. Go to the online calendar (westerncalendar.uwo.ca/2013) and follow this path: Faculties → Science → Department (that offers the module). Select the specific module/program and look for the section labeled Module.
- Select the courses you want to take in the coming year and check that you have the required prerequisites for each. [Click through to each course description, and read the section labeled prerequisites.]
- Check the online timetable to ensure each course is being offered, along with when it’s scheduled.
- Develop your own timetable based on your course selections
If you are taking modules that have course overlap (or common courses), follow these tips for course selection:
- If both of your modules are in the Basic Medical Sciences, see the BMSc web site
- If one of your modules is Biology and the other is in the Basic Medical Sciences, see the Biology web site and the BMSc web site
- If one of your modules is Psychology and the other is Biology or in the Basic Medical Sciences, send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
- If your module is offered by another Department, contact the Department Counsellor for that department
If you need special permission to take a course, see this page for details.
If you have specific questions about your course selection for 2013-14, after reviewing the resources noted above, send them to the Department Counsellors in the departments that offer the module(s) you are taking.
