WebAdvisor will still exist but it will no longer be used to select and register for courses. Students will use the WebAdvisor main menu to access Student Planning.

Refer to the Student Services website to obtain the required form(s) to declare your degree and major: http://www.uwinnipeg.ca/index/services-rcdsforms. These completed forms need to be submitted to Student Central. 

Student Planning does not include the maximum number of introductory courses allowed. This requirement is not compatible with Student Planning and has been removed from Degree Audit.

The emergency contact information needs to be cleared prior to registration otherwise you will not be able to register even if it your registration time.When you first log into Student Planning, on the top right of the screen under Notifications there will be a notice about Emergency Contact. You need to clear this message by either clicking OK on the emergency contact form or by filling in your emergency contact information. Emergency Contact information will need to be confirmed once per year. Note: you are not required to fill in any information but you must click OK on the form.

Courses can be planned over multiple terms and years, the sections for the course, which are the date and time the course will be offered, are usually only available for the current and immediately upcoming terms. In order to register for Courses that have been planned you first need to plan the section you want to register for.  Planning a course does not guarantee the course will be offered in the term you planned it.

The Plan & Schedule tab is where you schedule your course sections, register, waitlist, and drop courses / sections.  

Go to the Plan & Schedule tab and select Schedule. Scroll down to your desired courses (on the left column). To view sections of that course in the selected term, click View other sections. Move your mouse down the selected sections to see how those sections will fit in your schedule. They will appear on the Sunday – Saturday schedule yellow with a dashed line around them. If you are looking for a section of a course that is in a different term, use the arrows to scroll to that term. If you do not see the course or section in your plan, use the Course Catalog to search for the course and add it to your plan. 

Please note: When registering for your sections, ensure that you register for Fall term first, followed by the Fall/Winter term and then Winter term. You must register for each term separately.

There are two ways to register. On the Plan & Schedule tab you can either Register for all of the course sections you have planned (sections that appear yellow on the schedule) by selecting the grey Register Now button on the top right of the screen. This will register you for the available sections only. This does not include courses that are already full. If you cannot register for a section because it is full the register button will not be available. If waitlists are available for the section a Waitlist button will appear at the bottom of the section information.

You can also register for individual course sections by selecting the Register button located at the bottom of each section on the left hand column of the screen.

Once you have successfully registered for a section, the section will change colour from yellow to green. 

Planned courses/ sections or waitlisted sections appear yellow, registered sections appear green, conflicts appear yellow with a red line around the section.

Course numbers are in the format BIOL-1115. Labs for courses have an L after the course number: BIOL-1115L, section numbers for labs are usually between 070 and 099.

When searching for a Lab enter the course number with an “L” after the number i.e. BIOL-1115L.

The catalog year is the year of the Academic Calendar containing the requirements a student must complete to earn a degree. Because degree requirements may change over time, a student may choose to change the catalog year to utilize requirements from newer calendars that fit best with their academic record. Students may not select a catalog year from years prior to the year of their admission to The University of Winnipeg.  To change your catalog year, please see Forms.

iCal is a computer file format which allows meeting requests and tasks to be shared between applications. The Save to iCal in Student Planning allows students to download their course schedule to their personal calendar if it supports iCal.

To add a new term to your timeline click the + button next to the term description. The timeline allows you to plan out courses in future terms.

The University of Winnipeg has 4 distinct terms: Fall – September to December, Fall/Winter – September to April, Winter – January to April and Spring – May to August.

You can search for courses in two ways – by using the My Progress page or by using the Course Catalog. You can search the Course Catalog by entering a specific course number, entering words that are in either the course title or description, or search for courses by Subject. Clicking on a Subject will display all courses and sections (if they are available) for that subject. You can further narrow your search by using the filters on the left hand side. This includes filtering for sections based on:

    • Terms such as Fall, Fall/Winter, Winter or Spring;
    • the days of the week and time of day a section is offered;
    •  instructor;
    • course level;
    • course type (such as courses that fulfil the Science or Humanities requirement);
    • online or in-class sections.

The course name, credit hours, course description, requisite courses, and when the course is typically offered will be displayed for each course. To add a course to your plan, click the Add Course to Plan button beside the course name. In the window that appears, select the term you would like to add the course to, and then click Add Course to Plan.
