Prepare to Register

Fall/Winter Intent to Register (ITR)


If you are planning on returning next September, you must complete the Intent to Register process to be permitted access to course selection during summer registration through the Student Center. Most students will be able to complete the Intent to Register process through their Student Center (under the Western Links heading, select "Complete my Intent to Register"). For students who are unable to complete the Intent to Register process online, they can receive a paper form from their Faculty.

Returning in September 2019?

You must complete the Intent to Register process by March 31st, 2019 to be permitted access to course selection during summer registration through Student Center.

Important: Mandatory for all returning students - Even if you are staying in your current program you should attend one of the information sessions offered during the program counselling period.
