In-coming students and students who are not enrolled in an Art History major or minor program are welcome to register in 200-level and 300-level courses. The only exception to this rule is ARTH 300, which students can only take after completing ARTH 200.
There are two different types of course withdrawal
DNE (Did Not Enter)
The DNE withdrawal has no academic or financial impact on the student and does not appear on the student’s academic record.
The course as well as a DISC withdrawal notation remains on a student's academic record but does not affect the student's GPA. However, the student is financially responsible for the payment of all tuition and other fees pertaining to the course.
Consult Term Dates and Deadlines. Students can simply drop the course of their choice through their Student Center before the deadline.
If you would like to request being withdrawn from a course after the DNE or DISC deadlines, please consult Student Academic Services.
Enrollment appointment dates depend on the number of credits left to complete your degree and the category of student. Most students can register for Fall and Winter courses starting in March.
Students are encouraged to enroll in Winter term courses at the same time as Fall courses.
The Faculty of Fine Arts admits students once a year. Requests must be made by March 1 for entry to the program beginning the following September of that year. To determine what type of request and steps are required, consult Student Academic services and follow the option that applies to your situation.
Students must sumbit a student request form through their Student Centre and provide the syllabus of the course that will get substituted. The request will be reviewed by the Undergraduate Program Director.
If a course is full, it is advisable to look regularly at the Class Schedules to see if spots become available before the term’s DNE date. The department does not have waitlists and does not overload courses. If a student needs to register to a specific Art History course in order to graduate and it is full, please contact the Department Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, if both courses have different special topics and both are listed in SIS, the student can register without making a special request. If students wish to verify this information, they should contact the department assistant at email@example.com.
