Intent to Register

Completing the Intent to Register (ITR) process lets Western know a student's preference for the next academic year.  Students can indicate their program and/or module, as well as their course load (full or part time).  It is mandatory for current first year students to complete the ITR.  Upper year students can complete the ITR if there will be change in their preference.  If they are just continuing in the same, they do not need to complete the ITR.

Online submission deadline is March 31, 2021 CLICK HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS
