Laurier course selection to begin June 22

Reading Time: 2 minutes

LORISCourse selections for fall and winter courses for the 2015-16 academic year at Wilfrid Laurier University will begin on LORIS on June 22.

Returning students will have the opportunity to register for their core credits at their assigned time slot according to their program of study and the number of credits they have completed or will have completed by August 2015. They will be able to register for all other courses on July 8 at 12:00:01 a.m. when all program restrictions are removed.

Students can check their program status on LORIS under the “Student Services” tab to ensure they are registering during the correct time slot.

Liberal arts, human and social sciences and social work students at Brantford, arts and Seminary students at Waterloo can register on June 22, 24 or 29, depending on their level of study.

Business, music and science students, including psychology students at Brantford, can register on June 23, 25 or July 2, depending on their level of study.

Specific time slot details can be found at http://legacy.wlu.ca/news_detail.php?grp_id=1351&nws_id=13644&filter_type=headline.

Before their time slot, students should determine which courses they need to take for their program and which electives they should or need to take to speed up the registering process. This information can be found in the 2015-16 undergraduate academic calendar at http://legacy.wlu.ca/calendars/index.php?cal=1&y=65.

This year, the department of information and communications technology has created a visual schedule builder to assist students in creating their schedules before their course selection date. Students can input the course codes of the classes they want to take, and the schedule builder will automatically select the sections that do not conflict with one another and meet the individual needs of the student, such as needing mostly morning or evening classes. This tool can be found at http://scheduleme.wlu.ca/vsb/.

To further prepare, students can write down the CRN numbers when choosing their courses. This way, they can simply enter these numbers on the “add or drop classes” page on LORIS rather than having to search for their courses again to add them, which can help speed up the process on these evenings when LORIS web traffic is heavy.
