Remember! Many lectures are accompanied by a seminar, lab or tutorial, so be sure to include all components in your schedule.

Are you registering for Fall/Winter?

Remember to plan your schedule for both terms. Some courses will span both terms, and others will be offered in either the Fall or Winter terms.

  • D1 courses: Fall/Winter
  • D2 courses: Fall only
  • D3 courses: Winter only
  • Plan your required courses into your schedule first, then context courses, and finally electives.
  • A full course load means you’ll have 3-5 courses each term.
  • Classes may be booked back-to-back (there is typically a 10 minute break between classes) but remember to consider the class locations!
    Not sure about travel time between classes? Check out a campus map.
  • Try not to leave big gaps in your schedule, but also be wary of large blocks of classes grouped together.
  • Classes fill up quickly, have a back-up plan!
