Register for courses

Learn how to add courses on My page. More detailed instructions can be found in the step-by-step box.

You may add courses until the last day to add courses for a school term.

After the last day to add courses, you can request to add a course by submitting a completed undergraduate course change form to Student Support Services on the main floor of University Centre. Approval is not automatic nor guaranteed.

You are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of your registration:

  • Some courses have more than one required component, including lectures (A), labs (B), and tutorials (T). You must register in all components required for each course.
  • Make sure you have all the prerequisites to avoid being dropped from the course. If you have completed the prerequisite at another institution, submit your official transcript to the Office of the Registrar.
  • You will not receive credit for courses identified as duplicate or mutually exclusive.

If you would like to drop a course after the academic drop date, you must submit a request for academic concession (RAC) to Student Support Services on the main floor of University Centre. Approval is not automatic nor guaranteed.
