Next Steps

Plan to attend the Science Transfer Student Summer Academic Orientation (SAO) Day

Save the date in your calendars – June 23, 2022. It is strongly recommended that you attend this event as you will get the chance to learn all about the services that are available at Western, what your degree will look like, and how transfer credits work. Once you have registered for the orientation, you will be able to schedule a one-on-one appointment with an Academic Advisor on our team. These appointments will begin after the orientation on June 23.

Start thinking about which degree/module(s) you are interested in

The options are listed under degree options. You will need to select one when you meet with an Academic Advisor after SAO Day. If you change your mind later about which one you want to complete, that’s okay. You are not stuck with your choice. However, your course selection may depend on which option you choose. Note, if you would like to complete an Honors degree at Western, you will need to complete one full year at Western before you can register for the Honors degree program.

Enroll in courses

Your course enrolment appointment may occur prior to SAO Day. If it does, feel free to enroll yourself in courses but be prepared to change them after speaking with an Academic Counsellor. If you need assistance with this, review this step-by-step guide. There may be some courses that the system will not permit you to enroll in. This is because it will not recognize your transfer credits. If you encounter this error (or require assistance with any other courses), please contact the registration helpline.

Attend the Science Transfer Student SAO Day

You must register in advance through Summer Academic Orientation (SAO). Registration will open in late May or early June – check your Western email. Note, you will not receive an appointment prior to the SAO Day.

Attend classes!
