Congratulations on placing out of your WRIT course! For some of you, this is an opportunity to take your General Education Elective (Gen Ed) course ahead of time, while for others, it is mandatory that you take a Gen Ed in place of WRIT.
Human Services Foundations (HSF1):
It is mandatory for you to take an "ENGL" subject General Elective (Gen Ed) if you have placed out of your WRIT course. You MUST complete this elective in Level 1 of your program to avoid paying any additional fees for the course. Select an “ENGL” subject Gen Ed from the available Diploma level courses linked from the main General Education Elective page. Please pay attention to the date and time the courses are offered to ensure the selected course will fit into your existing schedule. You are required to register into a General Education Elective with an "ENGL" subject code. If you are comfortable with online learning, then you may instead choose an "ENGL" elective from the online options. Use the 'How to Register' link for registration assistance. If you missed taking your "ENGL" elective during your place-out semester, please see the 'Out of Sequence/Part Time' link for registration assistance.
Please note: Registration into your General Education Elective will NOT be possible until after the WRIT course has been removed from your timetable.
All Other Students:
It is NOT mandatory that you take your General Education Elective if you place out of WRIT. Should you choose to work ahead, please take the time to find a Band (group of courses) that will fit with your timetable & choose an elective. Use the ‘How to Register’ link for registration assistance (skip to step #3.) If you are successful in completing your General Education Elective, you will still receive registration emails from the General Education office when your program and level is scheduled in the future. The system emails all students in those scheduled programs and levels and cannot detect students who have already completed the requirement.
Please note: Registration into your General Educational Elective will NOT be possible until after your WRIT course has been removed from your timetable.
