Enrolment forms and tools
Most tasks related to enrolment can be done through the Enrol application, accessible when you open a uoZone session as a stand-alone app as well as through your Student Center. However, if you have to make an in-person request or carry out certain tasks, you may need one of these forms.
Course enrolment (regular students)
If you’re admitted to a program and are enrolling in courses at the University of Ottawa for the first time, complete the undergraduate course enrolment form (PDF).
Course enrolment (special students)
If you’d like to enrol as a new special student at the University of Ottawa, in other words, without being admitted to a program, start the enrolment process by filling out the personal identification form for undergraduate special students.
If you’ve previously been enrolled at uOttawa or Saint-Paul University, you can proceed directly to online enrolment. To do so, please log into uoZone and click on the Enrol application.
- Online enrolment is not possible for students in the Transfer of credits category. If you are in this category, please print and complete the undergraduate special student enrolment form (PDF) and bring it with you to the undergraduate studies office of the faculty offering the course during the enrolment period.
Course enrolment (international exchange students at the University of Ottawa)
If you’re taking a course at the University of Ottawa as part of a student exchange, complete the undergraduate course enrolment form for incoming exchange students (PDF) before you arrive and send it to the faculty academic advisor you’ve been assigned at the University of Ottawa. This advisor will handle your enrolment for the duration of your exchange at the University of Ottawa.
Change or cancellation of enrolment (regular and special students)
If you wish to change or cancel your enrolment, try to do it first online in uoZone (under Applications, click Enrol). If you’re not able to, complete the Modification/Cancellation of enrolment form (PDF) and bring it to the academic secretariat of your faculty or school.
Permission to take courses at another university
If you’d like to take one or more courses at a university other than the University of Ottawa or Carleton University, complete the Letter of Permission request form (PDF) and submit it to the academic secretariat of your faculty or school.
Administrative fees apply for a letter of permission request.
University of Ottawa-Carleton University exchange program
If you’re a University of Ottawa student and would like to study at Carleton University as part of an exchange agreement with Carleton, complete the Exchange Program — University of Ottawa-Carleton University form (PDF) and submit it for approval to the academic secretariat of your faculty or school.
Request for prior-learning recognition
The University of Ottawa recognizes that learning can occur not only by taking university courses (or their equivalent), but also through professional experience, self-teaching, non-credited courses, workplace training and other situations. Prior learning recognition (PLR) makes it possible for students who have acquired knowledge in a non-traditional manner to receive advanced standing for a course with a specific course code offered at the University, or in certain cases, to be granted an exemption. To request PLR, complete the Request for Prior-Learning Recognition form (PDF) and submit it with all the required documents to the academic secretariat of your faculty or school during your first term at the University of Ottawa.
Administrative fees apply for the request for prior-learning recognition.
Planning your course schedule before the enrolment period begins will give you a good idea of what courses to add to your schedule when you start enrolling in uoZone.
The course timetable lets you search a database of all the courses offered at the University, read course descriptions and see the different course sections as well as the time and place courses are offered.
Build your course timetable for the Fall and Winter terms. The template is already divided into timeslots according to the University’s course schedule.
Program and course calendars
Consult the official source of information on all University of Ottawa programs. You can find your program requirements, such as which mandatory, optional and elective courses you need to take, and read course descriptions.
Evaluation of teaching and courses (S-Report)
At the end of every course of at least nine hours with the same professor, you fill out an Evaluation of Teaching and Courses form to evaluate the course. Once compiled, results are available in the S-Report. This report provides information on aspects of professors’ teaching, which can help you select your courses. You can see the S-Report via uoZone. Click the Applications tab.
To help you with course enrolment, we’ve created tutorials that provide tips and explain functions like finding and changing courses, using your shopping cart, adding your name to a waitlist, checking your progress towards completing your academic requirements and much more.
- See the tutorials under the various uoZone applications.
