Course Offerings for 2020/21

The dates/times for all courses are listed below for online or on-campus courses. Before you begin: 

  • Make sure you are viewing the appropriate online or on-campus courses. Note: Online courses are first and foremost for online students only.
  • Review your program requirements to ensure you are registering in the required courses for your program.
  • 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, those who registered last in a specific section of a course may be moved to another section offered at the same day and 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 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 term; then A for 1st 6 weeks, B for 2nd 6 weeks or C for the full term; 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.
Any questions regarding registration should be directed to fswassist@wlu.ca for on-campus students and onlinemsw@wlu.ca for online students. 
  • If you receive Error messages on LORIS, please either send us the exact error message you receive or a screenshot of the error as well as your name, ID number and your program as it will assist us in troubleshooting the issue. 
  • If you are looking for course information from the 2019-2020 academic year, you can find it here
