Registration dates

When you'll know your registration date

You'll receive an email about 2 weeks before your registration opens to let you know that your registration date can be viewed on the Student Services Centre (SSC). You'll be able to register any time between your registration open date and the add/drop deadline, or course change date.

If you're a newly admitted or a continuing student in a partial program, your registration date may change. 

Check the SSC regularly for up-to-date registration information.

Registration times are listed in the Pacific Time Zone. If you're registering from a different time zone, make sure you know when registration starts in your location.
