Registration for the 2013 January term WISE courses opens **October 29, 2012**. Information on the available courses can be found here:
General information on WISE can be found here:
It is possible additional WISE courses will be added later. Currently five courses are listed that have been approved for qualified SLAIS students.
A reminder that space in the WISE courses is very limited. Do **NOT** request a space in a course unless you are firmly committed to taking it if you are offered a space. Being given a requested space and then dropping the course near or after the course begins will put you at the bottom of the wait list for future WISE courses.
Here is what you need to do to put your name on the lists for a January 2013 WISE course:
On or after October 29, send an email to Susie Stephenson [email@example.com]. In the email give your program and the course or courses in which you would like to request a space. You need to do this sometime before November 12th, but it is better to do it sooner rather than later to help WISE with their workload and in case they decide to start assigning students a bit early].
SPECIAL NOTE FOR STUDENTS in the Standalone MAS program:
IMPORTANT- If you are in the standalone MAS – before we can send in your request to WISE to take a course you must have first completed the “Application for Credit for External Courses Form”: http://www.slais.ubc.ca/RESOURCES/students/RequestExternalCourses.pdf
It must also be signed by Rick Kopak as SLAIS Graduate Advisor before the WISE registration process can take place.
When you send your request to take a class to Susie Stephenson please indicate that the form has already been submitted and approved. If you forget to tell her or you haven’t completed the approval process it will delay the process of trying to secure a seat for you in one of the WISE courses. Given the small number of seats, it will likely keep you from obtaining one of the seats.
