GENERAL POLICIES AND INFORMATION
Class cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances:
If an individual class is cancelled because of instructor illness, we will contact each student by email and by telephone.
Cancellations due to inclement weather:
Decisions to close Western Continuing Studies due to inclement weather follow the University's policy on class cancellation; decisions will be communicated on the University's homepage. Every effort will be made to provide similar details on Western Continuing Studies homepage and on social media.
If the University remains open then it is deemed that Western Continuing Studies is open and classes will be running as scheduled. Cancelled classes whether due to instructor illness or inclement weather will be rescheduled at a later time. You will be notified by Western Continuing Studies of the rescheduled day and time.
Any course for which there is insufficient enrollment will be cancelled. If you enroll in a course that is subsequently cancelled, you may transfer to another course or receive a full refund. Refunds will be made via the original payment method.
A grade report is issued for non-credit courses. We will email you once the grade report is available.
For workshops, a grade report will be available within 24 hours of completing the course and for graded courses, a grade report will be available within 2 weeks after the completion of the course. Simply select your course and the report you wish to view or print by logging in to myWCS > Transaction History.
If you are enrolled in a credit program or course (Post-Degree and French Immersion) please log in to your Student Centre account to view your final course grades.
UPDATING YOUR RECORDS
To make sure you don't miss any timely communication from us, please update your contact information on myWCS.
Every effort is made to adhere to the course schedule published online, although courses, dates and times are subject to change: any changes will be communicated to you by email. If you are no longer able to attend as a result of the schedule change, students will have the option to transfer to another course or receive a full refund.
Information on required textbooks is available on the course section description page and will be included on your receipt at the time of registration. If textbook details are unknown at the time of registration, we will communicate the details by email.
For your convenience, textbooks can be purchased from Books Plus, an affiliate of the Western Bookstore, located on off-campus on Western Road. Please visit Books Plus for hours, location and parking information.
