Registration instructions

When communicating with a student, it is your responsibility to ensure:

  • the accuracy of the course/section number
  • a timetable conflict doesn't occur due to the added course(s)

If a student needs to be force enrolled into a course section, the approval of the program chair is required, along with an explanation for the force enrol. For example: allowing a timetable conflict or allowing a student to take a course when they are missing a prerequisite.

Supplemental information

Supplemental requests are completed through Laserfiche, initiated by a student or faculty. Refer to Faculty instructions for supplemental requests (pdf).       

Extra course fees

A full-time cohort student is one who has been admitted to and enrolled in a minimum of 70 per cent of the hours, or 66 2/3 per cent of the courses in the current session/level of the program of study.       

Extra course fees will apply for additional courses (above the normal course load for the session). Students are encouraged to follow their program design and refer to their Progress Report regularly (Student Portal > My Courses tab) to ensure they are selecting electives and program options in the appropriate level(s). Re-enrolment in failed or missed courses will result in additional course fees.

Students must pay fees for part-time and additional courses via the Student Portal within 72 hours (3 days) of the course being added by the Enrolment Officer. For international students who have added surplus courses in their level and qualify for the domestic rate, fees and course adjustments will be done automatically by the Registrar's Office.       

Part-time Studies (Day Courses) registration

Part-time Studies (Day Courses) registration begins one week prior to the term start date through the Student Portal. An individual requesting registration for a course that is not available through their student portal and part of a full-time cohort program, must follow the Part-time studies (day courses) registration process.
