Live Chat Support

During Course Registration Period Only

The Kinesiology Undergraduate Team is pleased to offer a live chat - through Microsoft Teams - to assist students during the course registration period. The chat will only be for addressing questions related to course registration. Students are asked to adhere to the chat schedule so that we can proritize support for the students who are eligible to select courses at that time.

The information below is intended to help students in the School of Kinesiology who are entering second, third or fourth year prepare for course registration. Due to the number of student inquiries that are received by the School of Kinesiology on a daily basis, please read through the information on this page to find the answer to your question before contacting the office.

Full course descriptions for most courses are available in the Academic Calendar. For special topics courses that were offered previously,  course outlines can be accessed on the School of Kinesiology website. Course outlines for the current academic year are posted as soon as they become available.

The Online Timetable lists all courses being offered for the current academic year, including notes regarding course priorities and restrictions. Please be sure to check course restrictions and prerequisites in the Academic Calendar prior to attempting to register. Course priorities and/or restrictions are not usually waived.

Not all courses have had instructors assigned to them yet, but that information will be posted to the Online Timetable when it becomes available.

General Registration Information

Registration Times and Class Enrolment

The Office of the Registrar uses a lottery system to randomly assign appointment dates and time. The School of Kinesiology has no involvement in the assigning of the course selection appointments. You can access your appointment date in the Student Centre, typically it is posted one business day prior to the start of course selection for your program year. If you do not receive a course selection appointment you will need to call the registrar’s office 519-661-2100.

A few courses offered through the School of Kinesiology may fill up quickly. Students cannot receive special permission to be added to a course that is full. If a course has filled, you should still complete your schedule by taking other courses. Priorities will lift or change on July 20 and you will be able to add and drop certain courses at that time. Courses that filled quickly may become available. Keep in mind, courses listed as "Restricted" do not lift at all. Keep checking enrolment even after this date (July 20) as add/drop activity will continue throughout the summer, including an extended online web registration period beginning August 22.

Prerequisites and Course Restrictions

Only courses listed in the online timetable are being offered during the 2018-19 academic year. We are not planning to add any more courses (or additional sections to courses currently listed) at this time. Please be sure you have taken the prerequisite before attempting enrol in a course. 

Students requiring special permission to take non-Kinesiology courses should contact the department offering the course. If/when permission is granted, the department should forward a notice of permission to our office via email kinug@uwo.ca to be noted on your academic record. To enrol in the course, you will need to call the helpline at 519-661-2100 when your online registration appointment opens.

If you receive an error message when registering for a course, be sure to check the prerequisite in the Academic Calendar and the course notes in the online timetable for an explanation. It is very important to check the notes and prerequisites when you receive an error message. If you meet the course pre-requisites and constraints and are still unable to enroll in the course please contact the helpline 519-661-2100.

Antirequisites

Antirequisites are listed in the Academic Calendar under course descriptions. It is important not to take antirequisite courses as you can’t receive academic credit for courses with similar content.
