Registration dates

When you'll know your registration date

You'll receive an email about 1 week before your registration opens to let you know that your registration date is 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 time zone: Please note that registration times are listed in the Pacific Time Zone. If you're registering from outside this time zone, make sure you know when registration opens in your location.
