Enrolment steps

Check your program requirements and course sequences

Knowing what your program requires will really help you build your timetable. See the programs and courses website or My Academic Requirements in uoZone to make sure you enrol in all courses or activities you need to get your degree.

Consult the Course Sequence for each program to find out when we recommend that you take your courses.

Plan your course selection and create sample timetables
  • The course search engine allows you to find out when and where courses are offered. It displays all available sections for a given course.
  • Perform searches in the course search engine (note that the course timetable for each term is available at least one week prior to enrolment). In addition, we encourage you to use the timetable template (printable PDF or Excel spreadsheet). Create more than one draft timetable, since you have to prepare for the Fall, January and Winter terms.
  • Find out more about courses, course component types and internships by consulting the Common Law Section’s Courses page
Information IconYou are responsible for making sure that the courses you enrol in don’t conflict with exam dates. Exam timetables are published on the Common Law Student Centre website. No accommodation is provided for exam timetable conflicts and it is each student's responsibility to ensure they do not have any exams scheduled simultaneously.

The enrolment module features a waitlist system. If you’re interested in a course but all sections are full, you can place your name on a waitlist and you will automatically be enrolled when a spot becomes available, subject to any enrolment limits and providing spots are reserved for your program.

For step-by-step instructions on how to place your name on a waitlist, please consult the Student Enrolment Guide tutorial, available on the Enrol application page. We also strongly recommend that you read our Wait list FAQ before using this function.

InformationImpossible for you to enrol online? You can do so in person or by mail. First, get your course selection approved by returning the completed and signed undergraduate enrolment form (PDF) to the Common Law Student Centre office, by mail, by fax or in person.
