Register for courses

Get ready to register

Before you can register for classes make sure you've done everything you need to be ready and eligible for registration. 

  1. Log into the SSC and select Registration > Course Schedule > Program
  2. If you're new to UBC, your acceptance deposit counts as your first registration deposit. 
  3. If you need help with degree requirements or course planning, contact your academic advising office

  4. Find out how to use worklists, navigate the Course Schedule and register in classes.
  5. Create multiple worklists in case courses are full. Creating a worklist doesn't register you for classes.
  6. After you register, you can add or drop classes until the course change deadline

Making changes to your registration

Adding or dropping courses

After you register you can add and drop courses until the add/drop (course change) deadline. For step-by-step instructions on adding/dropping courses read the quick help section in the course schedule.

Have loans or awards?

To maintain eligibility for awards, bursaries and student loans, you need to meet minimum course load requirements. Make sure you understand these requirements when you register and if you add or drop courses in the future. 

Troubleshooting registration issues

Having trouble registering?

If you have been admitted to UBC but are having trouble registering, make sure that you:

  • are eligible to register for the session
  • are registering on or after your registration date and time
  • have paid your registration deposit (continuing students) or acceptance deposit (newly admitted students)
  • have paid any other outstanding fees
