Registration in a Course or Program

Registration is the process of formally assigning and recording the enrolment of a student, usually in a course or courses. Registration is available only to those students who have received an offer of admission or readmission, or to students continuing from one Winter Session to the next.

Students register using the Applicant Service Centre. Certain courses and sections are restricted.

New students will receive an offer of admission and an information package.

All undergraduate students who are newly admitted to the University must pay a non-refundable deposit to confirm their acceptance of an offer of admission before they can register for the first time.

For further information regarding deposits, see Deposits. Deposits will be credited in full toward any assessed fees.

Some programs require students to confirm their acceptance of an offer of admission by paying an additional portion of their tuition fee. Students will be notified of this when they are offered admission to the program.

All students must pay their current fee instalment in full by the due date.
