Beta Photos has posted their proofs for the graduation photo composites by the stairs in the Cafeteria. If you had your photo taken, please check and ensure that your photo shows the correct person (including that you are on the composite you should be on) and that your name is spelled correctly. If everything is in order, put a check mark beside your name. If not, write your name on the side of the composite with the changes that need to be made!
If you are in Tech, Beta would like confirmation of the program name that should appear on your composite. Please place a check if the current name is correct, or adjust as necessary.
Due to the changeover in email systems at Western this weekend, the Registrar’s office has asked that we temporarily stop processing student AQ registrations. You can still go ahead and register for intersession & summer AQ courses however you will not receive a confirmation email from our office until Monday, March 2.
Thanks for your patience,
Manager, Continuing Teacher Education
You will have been receiving email from Western regarding the migration of email to a new system on February 28. Receipt of your mail on your mobile devices will be impacted by this change….be sure to visit https://myofficeinfo.uwo.ca/ for information and help.
