Undergraduate course enrolment help sessions in some high schools
Undergraduate course enrolment help sessions on campus
Course enrolment help sessions take place in May and June of each year. Dates for the 2018 sessions will be available in March 2018.
You must enrol at the University in order to attend courses or course-related activities (for example, work terms, exchange or other activities).
We will not grant you any units (credits) or record any grade for a course or activity you have not properly registered for by the enrolment deadlines, as indicated in the list of important academic dates and deadlines. You are responsible for completing your course selection and enrolment correctly and making sure that courses meet your program requirements. You can’t enrol after the deadline.
When you enrol in courses you are automatically responsible for the fees that appear on your statement of account. We don’t consider your account settled until your fees are paid in full.
Terminology used on the University of Ottawa website and in University publications
In November 2016, many of the terms used by the University in official texts changed, including those related to important academic dates and deadlines, program requirements and course descriptions. For example, we now use “term” instead of “session” and “unit” instead of “credit”. The University has done much work to update terminology. However, it is possible that examples of the old terminology remain, particularly in older or archived official texts. The old and new terms have the same meaning and should be considered equivalent.
