Registration Requests

Each unit/department/program/faculty has different ways to manage course registration. We recommend visiting  their website to determine their requirements.

Is the course full?
Register for a waitlist (if available)
No waitlist? Keep checking the course – other students may drop the course, so seats may become available. Registration is open until the Add/Drop Deadline

APSC Courses

Register for the waitlist if it is available. You will be registered if space becomes available.

Section switches are only available under exceptional circumstances. If you are requesting a section switch based on exceptional circumstances please book an appointment with an ESS Academic Advisor to determine your eligibility for consideration.

Engineering Departmental Courses and Program STTs

Contact the department/program responsible for the course or STT. Please visit their website to determine how to submit a request or inquiry.
