Build your timetable

  • Plan the list of courses you need for your program before you build your timetable.
  • Take the time to find out when each course section is offered and how your schedule will look with the courses you'd like to take. 
  • For help with planning your program, review the program-planning resources.
  • Using a blank timetable and a list of courses, map out a conflict-free schedule that fits your learning style.
  • We recommend that you build multiple timetables to ensure that you're ready with alternative courses and sections if some are full or unavailable.

Checking your timetable

Organizing your timetable will be easier if you schedule courses in this order:

  1. Courses with only one section
  2. Courses that have a lecture and a linked lab or tutorial section, and where only one lecture or linked section is offered
  3. Courses that offer a choice of sections
  • Remember that some courses have more than one required component, including lectures (A), labs (B) and tutorials (T).
  • You can use the course registration system to to check the timetable you've built, but you won't be able to register for classes until your assigned date and time. 
  • If you can't work out a timetable without a conflict, choose alternative electives.
  • If you are checking your timetable in advance of your registration date and time, be sure to note the CRNs you plan to use for registration.
  • Once you have built at least one timetable and an alternate, and have the list of CRNs associated with each course section, you are ready to register on your assigned date and time.
