Read your registration and invoice package
Starting late May (for the Fall term), you will receive a Registration and Fee Invoice package in the mail. Make sure you read through it and take note of the key dates and deadlines for things like deposits and orientation.
What you need to be ready for the start of the semester
Now that you’ve paid your deposit, you're officially a Fanshawe student! Here’s what you need to do next while you wait to start your first semester:
Write the WRIT assessment
Look for the assessment dates available in July and August on fanshawec.ca/writ. A small number of programs are exempt from this step.
Complete any post-admission requirements
See if your program has pre-placement conditions such as police record checks or health forms, or if it requires a laptop purchase.
Register for your courses
For most Fanshawe programs, students are registered in their courses and given a class schedule, located on WebAdvisor, four to six weeks before classes begin. To view your course listing, view your program page. Most students will have to take one or more General Education Electives as part of their program, with some required to register for a Gen Ed in the first semester.
Students in the General Arts and Science program must choose and register for their courses online. View information on how to select and register for courses, attend one of our in-person sessions or contact an Academic Advisor for assistance.
Students in Business (BUS1) or Business (Co-op) (BUS2) can visit their program homepage on FanshaweOnline for instruction on how to select electives.
Get your class schedule
Class schedules will be available by mid-July. Log in to WebAdvisor and check under the student menu to access yours.
