Plan your program @ Uwindsor

Let's choose your courses


You may register beginning on May 26, 2020 for Fall 2020 as long as the university has received your confirmation of our offer of admission. You will need your UWin ID and password to access our student information platform, UWinsite Student, where you will be able to register for your courses.

This site lists courses available to first-year students, provides a guide to most first-year course selections and outlines options or recommendations for other courses.

Please use the online timetable for more information. The earlier you register, the better your chances are for getting the courses you want at the time you want to take them.

If you are having any problems with the registration process, you can reach out through ask.UWindsor Live Chat or the Registrar’s Office.

Heads up: Information on this site, including dates/times could change, be sure to check back often.

Let's get started
