Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to take a General Education Elective?

Your General Education Elective is a mandatory part of your program and is a graduation requirement. You are responsible for selecting and self-registering for a course. Should you decide not to register/complete your General Education Elective during your scheduled level, additional fees may apply.

What if I have already completed electives in another program, or received a transfer credit?

If you have received an external/internal credit or have completed your General Education Elective requirements in a previous Fanshawe program, you may not be required to register and complete an additional elective. You can review your program requirements by using the My Progress tool in WebAdvisor.
