Registration Webinars

Course registration can be a confusing first step in your preparation for Laurier. Between required courses, electives, labs and tutorials, there are a lot of options to consider when creating your first university class schedule. Our Laurier 101 course registration webinars will guide you through the process of reviewing your program requirements, evaluating your elective options and developing a class schedule that works for you. Recordings of each webinar will be posted below one business day after their occurrence. 

Registration webinars are scheduled by *Faculty and include:

  • Program and faculty-specific information (what courses are required and when you should take them);
  • An introduction to the Course Registration Guide;
  • A demonstration of how to use the Visual Schedule Builder;
  • A demonstration of how to complete your registration on LORIS; and
  • An overview of common LORIS errors

*If you are in a double-degree program in the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics (LSBE), register for the June 8 at 3 p.m. LSBE webinar. Students studying in Geography or Environmental Studies program should attend the Faculty of Science webinar on June 9 at 7 p.m. Students in a double-major with BA Policing should attend the webinar for your additional program major. If you are in a different double-major program or are unsure of which webinar to attend, please contact us at laurier101@wlu.ca
