How to register

Conestoga College degree students

Students registering for spring 2024 interdisciplinary electives in a part-time student status must register through Part-time studies (day courses) registration. Registration begins May 6, 2024 and students can begin submitting the Part-time Studies Course Registration Form on April 29.

The academic team will review the request to determine eligibility for registration, that the course has the capacity, and no timetable conflict exists.

If approved: the academic team will forward the form to the Registrar’s Office for processing. The Enrolment Officers will add the invoice through held enrolment on the Student Portal and students will be given 48 hours to pay for the course(s). It is the student's responsibility to check the portal for registration updates and to complete the payment process.

If denied: the academic coordinator/academic team will respond to the student via email and communicate the rationale. (e.g. no space/course not offered/individual not a degree student).
