Psychology course waiver requests

Early registration is STRONGLY encouraged! Course selection opens up several months in advance of each semester (June for Fall, November for Winter). During course registration, you may find that a course you would like to register in is full. At times, a waiver can be granted to allow you to register.  

If you wish to request a course waiver for a Psychology course, all requests are managed by Sharon Helder, Academic Advisor and Manager (not the course instructor). 
Send an email to shelder@uoguelph.ca and be sure to include your student number and an explanation for your request. You will typically receive a response within 24-48 hours.
