Fall & Winter Registration Process and Procedures

All students registered in courses in the past year (Fall and/or Winter terms), as well as newly admitted students, are assigned an online WebAdvisor/Student Planning registration start date and time for the upcoming Fall/Winter Term.

This information for Fall/Winter 2023 will be emailed to your University Webmail account.

  • Assigned registration times will be emailed to students' Webmail accounts in early June. 
  • Tiered registration will be from about mid-June to mid-July
  • Open registration begins late July. (Registration start dates/times are no longer needed/issued.)

All dates are subject to change.  Check your University Webmail account regularly! 

Another way to find out your assigned registration date and time is through Student Planning. Log in to WebAdvisor or the Student Planning self-serve sign-in https://wss.uwinnipeg.ca/Student.  From the Student Planning homepage you will find on the left side a grey bar.  Click Academics, Student Planning, and then Plan & Schedule.  Click the left or right arrows to Fall Term or Fall/Winter Schedule screen.  Here you will see your registration start date and time.


You can still register online up until the start of the Fall and Winter Terms. However, space availability becomes increasingly limited as it gets closer to the start of classes and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

What You Need to Know about Your Registration Date/Time:

  • Your assigned registration start date and time is the earliest that you can register and is based on your credit hours completed and Grade Point Average (GPA).

  • Please mark your assigned registration start date/time in your calendar, as this is your optimal time to register. You'll have your best selection of courses.

  • If you are unable to register on your assigned day and time or if you missed it for whatever reason, you can still register online up until the start of the Fall and Winter Terms. However, space availability becomes increasingly limited as it gets closer to the start of classes and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. We strongly suggest that you plan to register on your assigned registration start day and time.

  • Plan in advance what course(s) you need to take. Make sure you have the necessary prerequisite(s), permission forms, or honours forms prior to your registration start date and time.

  • The majority of classes will be taught in-person (subject to public health orders/guidelines).  Some remote learning alternatives will continue to be offered. 
  • Online courses are delivered in various ways.  Please read the "meeting information," "notes," and "additional information" carefully to determine exactly how each course will be delivered and whether you can be available at any required days/times.  For more information on course delivery, please see Online Courses

Other Important Notes:

  • WebAdvisor, the University's online student information system, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for your convenience.  For information and instructions, please see About Student Planning.

  • Always check the withdrawal schedules to determine the last dates to drop a course for refund and/or voluntarily withdraw (no refund). These drop dates are not the same as the payment deadline.

  • In the PDF timetable, the courses offered, dates, days and times, and exam dates/times shown are based on information available as of the date found at the bottom of the page and may be subject to change.  Should there be discrepancies between information in the PDF timetable schedule and information found in Student Planning, the latter will prevail.

  • All notifications of cancelled courses, new courses, wait lists, as well as day and time changes are sent to your University webmail account. It is the student’s responsibility to check their University email account daily. For your own security, do not share your WebAdvisor or your email user ID and password with anyone.

  • The University reserves the right to remove students without notice from lab sections if they are not registered in a lecture section.  Also, students registered in two or more sections (lab or lecture) for the same course will be removed from the extra sections.  All courses that require a laboratory component need only ONE lab section (exceptions: Education courses EDUC-2511/2512 and EDUC-3810/3811).  A lab section is required for a student registering off the waitlist when a seat becomes available.

  • Students are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of their registration and should ensure that the courses selected are appropriate to their program of studies and that they meet the degree requirements for graduation.

  • Do we have your most up-to-date address and phone number(s)? You can use WebAdvisor to update your address, phone numbers, and alternative email address.  Log in to your account on WebAdvisor, select Current Students, and then under Academic Profile, select Address Change.  For other changes, such as a name change, please go to Forms, complete a "Personal Update" form, and submit it to Student Central.

  • Do we have an emergency contact name/phone number for you?  Every year you will be prompted by the Student Planning module to provide or confirm this information. We strongly encourage you to do this, so that we know who to call in an emergency situation.  Click your userID in the top right area of your screen and then click "Emergency Information."   (If you do not want to provide these details, click confirm to bypass.)
