Registration for out-of-sequence, overload and part-time students

If your program was not on the list of those regularly scheduled to take a General Education (Gen Ed) elective course this semester, then you are considered Out-of-Sequence.

You may be Out-of-Sequence because:

  • You took a Gen Ed elective before, but you failed or withdrew from it, and you now need to pick up a Gen Ed to fulfill your program’s graduation requirements, OR
  • You missed taking your elective during your scheduled term, OR
  • You are a part-time student, OR
  • You are working ahead, OR
  • You placed out of WRIT - in this instance, please follow the WRIT Place-Out link for more information.

As a result, you will not be able to register for your course via WebAdvisor. Seats for Part-Time, Overload and/or Out-of-Sequence students are limited and are first come, first served only.

Are you a DIPLOMA level student wanting an ONLINE option? 

A limited amount of Part-Time/Out of Sequence/Overload seats are put aside in each of our Online General Electives for direct registration. Please remember that there are no waiting lists & electives are first come, first served!

  1. Search our Diploma level Part-Time offerings offerings and make note of the subject/course code (example: PSYC), course number (example: 1007) and section number (example: -40PT) of the course you want. We suggest picking more than one course in case your first choice is full.
  2. Contact the Registrar's Office (519-452-4277), pay your fee, and they will enroll you in your elective.

Are you a PART-TIME student who registered through OCAS?

Part-Time Post-Secondary students—defined as those who applied for their program through OCAS—are able to register directly online for their General Electives, as long as they have paid their deposit.

  1. Search our Diploma level Part-Time offerings offerings and make note of the subject/course code (example: PSYC), course number (example: 1007) and section number (example: -40PT) of the course you want. We suggest picking more than one course in case your first choice is full.

Are you a DEGREE level student wanting an ONLINE option?

You cannot register directly with the Office of the Registrar for Degree Level courses!

  1. Review your program’s degree elective requirements and the different Degree level offerings listed on the website.
  2. Email gened@fanshawec.ca with the details of the course you’d like to enrol in. Staff will check course availability and your program’s requirements.
  3. We will add permissions (a "petition") to your file for you to enrol in the course. You must then contact the Registrar’s Office  (519-452-4277) to pay your fee, and they will enroll you in your elective. Your seat is not held with the “petition”, you must immediately contact the Registrar's Office (519-452-4277) upon receiving the email confirmation from gened@fanshawec.ca.
