Wanted: Volunteer Notetakers

Are you interested in doing some volunteer work while you are attending classes this fall?

There may be students in your classes who need access to quality notes for reasons related to a disability or medical condition. Accessibility Services is seeking volunteer notetakers to fill this need.

If your instructor makes a request for a volunteer notetaker in one of your classes, please consider signing up! It’s a great way to sharpen your own note-taking skills and help out another student at the same time. Contact vnt@uwinnipeg.ca for more information.

On a Waitlist? Check Your Webmail Every Day

After classes have started, if you are still on a waitlist for your preferred course section, you should continue to check your webmail account daily for permission to register off of the waitlist.

If a space becomes available for you during the Course Add/Drop Period, you will receive an email letting you know that you can register through WebAdvisor. Register immediately!

For Fall Term, the waitlist will run for the last time on Sept. 19 which is the last day to register for a Fall or Fall/ Winter Term course.

For more information, please see: www.uwinnipeg.ca/registration/wait-lists.html
