Checklist Icon Let's choose your courses

You may register beginning November 11 for Winter 2020 as long as the university has received your confirmation of our offer of admission. You will need your UWin ID and password to access our student information platform, UWinsite Student, where you will be able to register for your courses.

This site lists courses available to first-year students, provides a guide to most first-year course selections and outlines options or recommendations for other courses.

Please use the online timetable for more information. The earlier you register, the better your chances are for getting the courses you want at the time you want to take them.

If you are having any problems with the registration process, call the Registrar’s Office at 519-253-3000, Ext. 3315. You can make changes up to the tenth day of classes, as long as there is room.
