Course Registering

Go to WebAdvisor  for information on resistering for courses.


Frequently asked questions:


1) Why am I Locked out of registering for a course as all sections are full? 


Note that caps for courses - where required, will be modified twice per day during the registration window at approximately 12:00 noon and 4:00pm.  Please be patient and continue to check back in WebAdvisor to see when spaces have opened up.


2) When is the last day that I can drop a course?


Answer: (Provided by Enrolment Services July 3, 2019)

The University recently changed its policy on the course drop deadline. Beginning fall 2019, students will have until the last day of classes to drop courses without academic penalty. The deadline to drop two-semester courses will be the last day of classes in the second semester. This change applies to all students (undergraduate, graduate and diploma) except for Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Associate Diploma in Veterinary Technology (conventional and alternative delivery) students.

This change reflects recent discussions about potential benefits to students, instructors and the University. The new course drop deadline is intended to help address student mental health issues; allow for more effective use of student, faculty and staff resources; and ensure that we focus on pedagogy and learning rather than on penalizing students.

We will notify students of the new course drop deadline in late August, including discussing the reasons for the change and suggesting points for students to keep in mind (e.g., no change to the refund schedule; academic, organizational and emotional supports available; and recommended consultation with a program counsellor/faculty adviser about potential impacts of dropping courses on future course selections).

With the fall semester quickly approaching, we encourage you to review your course outlines and websites to reflect the new deadline to drop courses. For faculty and instructors using the course outline manager tool, the new drop deadline will be updated in the tool as of the fall 2019 semester.
