Step 2: Pick Your Courses

All full-time students may enroll in 5.0 credits.
All part-time students may enroll in a maximum of 3.0 credits.

Most courses have a credit weight of 1.0 except:
F/G = 0.5 Essay course
A/B = 0.5 course
E = 1.0 Essay course

As an upper year student, you will need to select both required and optional courses. Refer to the Academic Calendar and the Brescia Modules for course prerequisites and module requirements.

Before you graduate with your 15.0 or 20.0 credit degree, all students must fulfill the following requirements.

Common degree requirements

  1.  All students must meet the admission and progression requirements for degree modules
  2.  5.0 courses numbered 0100-1999.
  3.  1.0 course from each of Category A (Social Science/Other), Category B (Arts) and Category C (Science)*.
    Brescia Approved Science Courses for Non-Science Students .
  4. At least 13.0 senior courses (numbered 2000-4999).
  5. 2.0 Essay courses with at least 1.0 at the senior level (2000-4999).

Step 3: Plan Your Timetable

(a) Using the Timetable Planner or the new “Draft My Schedule” timetabling tool found in your Student Centre, work out a conflict-free timetable. Remember, all full-time students may take a maximum of 5.0 courses. In building your timetable, you may not have an “un-balanced” load. This means that you are restricted to five courses in each term (Fall and Winter).

(b) Ensure that you have selected a minimum of 3.0 Brescia courses. If your selected courses are offered at Brescia, you are expected to take the course at Brescia. In building your timetable, you may wish to schedule your Brescia and your required courses first.

If you are unable to enroll in a Brescia section of a course, you may obtain permission to take the course at King’s, Huron or Western. Courses that are not offered at Brescia, may be taken at King’s, Huron or Western and do not require permission. Students are advised to select their courses carefully. Many departments at Brescia have created a rotating schedule of course offerings to ensure that Brescia students can fulfill their residency requirement. Within a students’ degree program only 40% of the courses can be taken through the main campus.

(c) Transfer your conflict-free timetable to the Course Selection Worksheet. Refer to the Sample Timetable Planner and Course Selection Worksheet SAMPLE.

When filling out the Course Selection Worksheet, be sure to include the following information in the appropriate column:
(i) Subject and Course Number.
Example: English 2033E
(ii) You must select the LECTURE component of each course. Some courses may also have a Tutorial or Laboratory.

(iii) Class Number for each course you wish to take. Lectures, laboratories and tutorials will each have a different class number.
Example:
English 2033E 530 (Lecture) = 12200 and 531 (Tutorial) = 12202
or for a course without another component:
Family Studies 2200 530 = 12292 (only)

Step 4: Course Registration

On the web:
Web registration can be accessed through the Western Student Services Center at https://student.uwo.ca. To access the system you will need:

Step 5: Confirmation of Courses

For web registration:

Check your timetable on the Web Registration panels. Once you add or drop courses on the web, your record WILL BE UPDATED IMMEDIATELY. After submitting or revising your course selections, check the STATUS area to ensure that each course was successfully added/dropped.

For mail or fax registration:

If you submitted your course requests through The Hive at Brescia, confirmation of your courses will be e-mailed, mailed or faxed to you as soon as your worksheet has been processed. Any changes to your timetable will be available to view on the web only. You may make changes to your courses once they are loaded on your record.

Step 6: Tuition and Fees Payment

OSAP

Students who have applied for OSAP by June 30, 2016 and have been notified of their entitlement, will receive an automatic deferral of fees until the loan documents have been received at Brescia University College for pick-up by the student. No deferment will be made for students appealing OSAP after a “nil” assessment has been received.

Scholarships

Brescia students who have been awarded a Brescia scholarship should deduct the value of their scholarship from their fee payment.
