All Psychology course waivers are signed by Sharon Helder, Academic Advisor and Manager, and not the course instructor.

Course Restrictions

Many restrictions have already been removed. Any remaining course restrictions will be removed after August 12 and your ability to register will depend on whether there is space available.
Rolling caps are exercised in our department, meaning that you may see a limited number of seats available on Webadvisor, with additions made at regular intervals. This is done to ensure access to students throughout the add period in each course selection window, so that those who require a course have ample opportunity to register before the remaining seats are released. If a course that you wish to register in is full, keep checking for spots to open due to rolling caps or students rearranging their schedules.
Beginning in August, 2019, please submit your waiver request to shelder@uoguelph.ca.
Be sure to use your @uoguelph.ca email address in all communication, and include your student ID.
