Registration Clinics

A registration clinic is to show you the step by step process of properly adding a course to your plan and completing the registration steps in order to reserve your spot in that course. During the session there will also be discussion on what each outcome means to make sure you have the complete understanding of how to read your progress page.

View Progress section in Self-Service











Program requirements are divided into outcomes.

Each outcome must be successfully completed in order to graduate. It is important to read the description of each outcome to know what is required of you.

Search for courses from the “View my progress” page by either clicking on specific courses listed under each outcome or clicking the “Search” button that appears in every outcome.

Clicking the “Search” button from each outcome ensures that only the courses that will count towards that outcome will be pulled up from the catalogue.

Once you have clicked on a course or the “Search” button from the desired outcome in the “View My Progress” section, you should filter your catalogue results.

Filtering allows you to narrow your results and makes searching for courses simpler and quicker. We suggest using the following filters :

  • Open sections only (always check off this option as it will only show courses that are available for that session)
  • term (not required but useful)
  • language
  • course delivery method, etc,.


How to search courses in Self-Service




All the courses that appear will fulfill the desired outcome.

Click on the “Register yourself for ____” link on the course of interest to expand the course and see the available sections.

Some courses may have several sections (hybrid, remote delivery, online, different available time slots)

Register yourself for course view




















Each section has its own “Add section to schedule” button.

Click “Add section to schedule” to plan that section.

Click “Add Section” on the pop-up window to plan the course.

Adding a section in Self-Service




*Do not click on the white “Add course to plan” button next to the course title since this doesn’t properly plan the course and doesn’t guarantee that the course is offered

**A planned course is NOT a registered course.



Once you have planned one or multiple courses from different degree outcomes, click on the “Student Planning” link and select the “Plan and Schedule” page.

The calendar is going to be displayed on the right hand side of the page.

(Please note that online courses will not have a scheduled time slot and will be listed at the bottom of the calendar)

To finalize your registration, you may click on the blue register button for a specific course, or the blue ‘Register Now’ button for the whole term. Repeat this process for every term for which you have planned a course.

(If this is your first course registration, you may need to answer a few questions and provide your SIN to finalize your course registration)

clicking register in self-service























Once you’ve clicked on “Student Planning”, you can access the Catalogue from the left hand side menu or the top drop-down menu.

Course catalogue

You may also search the course catalogue using the course code or subject by using the search bar at the top right of the page (available in the “Student Planning” section)

View My Progress

It is always recommended that you plan courses from the “View My Progress page” in order to ensure that you are aligning your course registration with your degree requirements.

*Accessing the catalogue directly will be necessary if you need to register for a lab since these do not appear in the outcomes on the ‘View my progress’ page.

Labs have the same course code with an additional ‘L’ at the end indicating that it is a lab (ex. BIOL 1507ELL Biology II-Lab). They always appear right after the course when searching.
