How Do I Know When I Can Register?

Helpful Hints

The web registration system is closed for daily maintenance from 11:30 pm until 1:30 am, Monday to Friday, but will be available at all other times.

Your registration appointment is valid from the assigned date until the end of the 1st week of the semester.

Generally, your registration appointment will be sometime in May between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:30 pm.

The Registration Centre will post your registration appointment in your online student record and notify you by mail and/or email. This does not mean you have to arrange a meeting with anyone. Your registration appointment is simply the date and time you are permitted to begin registering for courses (online or in person).

It is always a good idea to register as early as possible because classes may fill up quickly. If you will be unavailable to register at your assigned registration time, simply click the auto-enrol button in Web Registration and the system will automatically enrol you in the courses you have chosen on your registration date/time. You will need to do this for each semester.

Details and additional information about your registration appointment are available here.

It is important to review the information contained in "Preparing to Register" and also in "Building a timetable" well before your registration appointment arrives.
