Welcome to F/W Registration

F/W Registration allows you to register for, change and drop courses for the Fall and Winter terms. You may find the following Registration 'How-To' video helpful.

To find a list of open courses quickly, in the Timetable, enter the faculty and choose ANY for the discipline; then choose OPEN from the Status. You will get all the courses that are not full in that faculty. Of course, you can enter a discipline and get all the open courses just in that discipline, as well!

If you would like to be waitlisted for a course please email waitlists@acadiau.ca.
