TIMETABLE CHANGES

See above for information about making a timetable change during the first two weeks of September and/or the first week of February. In all other time periods, please book an appointment online.

Senior students who wish to reduce a course from their timetable must make an appointment with their guidance counsellor and follow the appropriate course drop procedure.

Please Note: The timetable change is only official when the student has received a new printed timetable. Until this time, the student must attend the originally scheduled classes. Non-attendance does not constitute dropping a course.
