Fall and winter terms
To avoid excessive web traffic on our online tools, course enrolment schedules are determined by your faculty and year of study. Schedules vary from one term to the next, but are usually published at the end of April.
Registration starts in early April 2017.
Whether you’re a new student or just need to refresh your memory, our support team is here to help you through the enrolment process. Please consult the enrolment support page for information on our student brigade, regional mentors and the enrolment help centre.
Course enrolment help sessions on campus and in some high schools
Our team organizes course enrolment help sessions in May and in June for students who are enrolling in a direct-entry faculty for the first time. Attend a session in one of the University of Ottawa’s computer labs and we'll help you build a course schedule and enrol in your courses.
Our liaison officers will also be visiting some high schools in late spring 2017. Contact your guidance counsellor to find out if we’re visiting your school.
Dates for course enrolment help sessions will be available in March 2017. Registration for sessions will also begin in March.
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.
