Important Notes

  • If you are a first year student, you may have been pre-registered in some courses by your Department.
  • If you decide to change to another offering of the course, please note that you risk losing your guaranteed place.
  • You must select and register for your elective courses.
  • If there is a restriction on a course or section, and you don't meet the criteria, you will be notified as you choose it. If you need a pre-requisite (a course before this course) or a co-requisite (course with this course), there should be links to those courses.
  • If you are having difficulty registering for a course, please contact the academic unit responsible for the course (for example, ENGL is the English department).
  • First year students may find the Choosing First Year Courses information helpful.
