Course Offerings for 2023/24

Before you begin: 

  • Review your program requirements to ensure you are registering in the required courses for your program in the appropriate terms.
  • Make sure you are viewing the appropriate online or on-campus courses. 
    • On-campus courses are primarily for those in the full-time on-campus programs. 
    • Online courses are primarily for those in the part-time online program unless otherwise specified on this page. For the 2023/24 specific sections of online courses have been opened to on-campus students. They are noted in the table below.
      • Online courses are fully online, asynchronous and self-directed, but students must meet weekly deadlines and assignments. Each course requires a minimum of 15 hours of study per week. Most are 6 weeks in length. 
  • Consult the registration guide and how-to videos to assist you through the registration process. 
  • Course registrations are on a first-enrolled, first-served basis.
    • Should the need arise to lower enrolment limits on course sections or even our enrolments over sections, those who registered last in a specific section of a course may be moved to another section offered at the same day, time and delivery method without notice. 
    • Should we be able to increase enrolment limits on a course section, those on a waitlist (where applicable) would have priority on those spaces.
  • Courses are subject to minimum registrations in each section. Courses with low enrolment may be cancelled. If this is necessary, affected students will be notified via email. 
  • Courses are noted with the course number and then the Section number. When searching on LORIS:
    • online course sections:
      • start with F, W, or S for the applicable fall, winter or spring academic term;
      • then A for 1st 6 weeks, B for 2nd 6 weeks or C for the full term courses;
      • and then a number.
      • Exception: Course sections starting with FI or PI for the Indigenous Field of Study program only.
    • on-campus sections are typically just a number or a single letter.
  • SK628, SK635, SK644, SK645, SK646, SK647 and SK648 are for students enrolled in the Indigenous Field of Study Advanced Standing MSW program (IFS) only. Requests for space in those courses from students outside the IFS will not be approved.

If you have questions or receive error messages on LORIS, please review the Error Messages Guide. If that does not help, send us the exact error message you receive or a screenshot of the error as well as your name, ID number and your program to fswassist@wlu.ca for on-campus students and onlinemsw@wlu.ca for online students.
