To all U of Manitoba students.
Reminder: Voluntary Withdrawal Deadline for Fall/Winter and Winter Term
Courses is Friday, March 19, 2010
The deadline for Voluntary Withdrawal from Fall/Winter and Winter Term
courses taught during the standard term is this Friday, March 19. VW's must
be done through Aurora Student. Courses taught outside the standard term
will have different VW deadlines.
Note - if you are On Hold for outstanding tuition, library books, parking
fines, etc. you will not be able to access the Registration function in
Aurora to VW a course. If you are On Hold and plan to VW, you must either
first clear your Hold so that you can access the Registration functions in
Aurora, or you must contact your Faculty (University 1) advising office for
assistance in dropping the course.
Are you planning to take courses in Summer Session?
Join the thousands of students who take advantage of Summer Session to
lighten their load in fall & winter, finish their degree faster, enjoy
smaller classes, or catch up on missed or failed courses.
Here are some things to know if you are planning to register for Summer
. Registration begins March 22, 2010. You will be assigned one day
during the first week in which you can register. The
ml> Registration Schedule indicates registration dates and times. Find your
registration time on Aurora Student. Log in and select Enrolment & Academic
Records. Select Registration and then Registration Time & Status. While on
this page you should also check to see if:
o You have any Holds that will prevent registration (including Advisor
Holds for students in specific programs);
o Your academic status prevents registration (e.g. academic suspension);
o Your record is not currently active due to an absence from university.
. For the first 5 days of registration (March 22, 23, 24, 25, and
26), spaces in most courses are released each day in equal numbers to ensure
fair access for all students. For example, if a course has 50 spaces
available, 10 spaces will be released each day. During these first 5 days of
registration, the only day you may register is determined by the last two
digits of your Student Number (see below). You may register between 9:00 am
and 12:00 midnight on your day of registration.
. If you are planning to Repeat a course(s) you have previously
completed, you must obtain permission from your faculty (University 1)
advising office prior to registration. Your advisor can also check to ensure
that a course Repeat is to your benefit depending on your academic goals. Do
this in advance of your registration day to ensure that your registration is
not delayed and you don't miss out on space.
. If you are expecting to graduate in Spring 2010, you must re-apply
for admission if you plan to continue taking courses in Summer Session.
. Remember that you are financially and academically responsible for
all courses in which you are registered after the Revision deadline. This
Revision period is very short in Summer Session, so make sure you drop a
course you will not be taking before it begins - or at the latest before the
applicable Revision deadline. Failure to pay for your courses will not
result in a de-registration of courses. Students who fail to pay for courses
will be placed on
<http://umanitoba.ca/student/records/registration/steps/652.htm> Hold and
will be unable to register for the following term until the Hold is cleared.
Failure to withdraw through normal procedures will result in a grade being
assigned to all courses in which you are registered in at the end of term
and you will be liable for all associated fees.
Remember - Make sure you contact a student advisor:
. If you are unsure of your course selection and program
. If you are planning to repeat a course or take an equivalent
. If your program requires Advisor approval - check your Hold status
in Aurora Student.
