Intent to Register

If you are planning on returning in September, you must complete and submit an Intent to Register (ITR) form. By completing an ITR form, you are letting Western University know that you are returning and the program that you plan to take next year. If you don't do this, you won't be able to register for courses. 

Most students will be able to complete the ITR process online through your Student Centre website. Students who are unable to complete the ITR process online can receive a paper form from the Academic Counselling Office - WSC 140.
