Registration 2018, Undergraduate Studies

From January 8th to January 26th inclusively, the Office of Undergraduate Studies will be focusing on enrolment. The wait time during this intensive walk-in registration period will, unfortunately, be longer. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

It will be possible to book an appointment as of February 20th.

In order to avoid the lineups, we encourage you to consult the Course Enrolment web site.

The following will be processed from January 8th to January 26th:

Course Enrolment
  • Course sequences: To find out which courses to follow this trimester and throughout your studies.
  • Error message: Error: You are unable to enroll in this class at this time. Available seats are reserved and you do not meet the reserve capacity requirements.” This means that the available seats are currently reserved for students in other programs of study or in other years of study.
  • Waitlist: When a course is full, you can put yourself on the waitlist and be automatically enrolled if a spot becomes available for your program of studies and if it fits into your schedule. Please note that you can put yourself on the waitlist for a course even if no seats are reserved for your program of studies.
  • Places reserved for another program: If you want to register for a course, but the remaining places are reserved for students in another program add your name to the waitlist of the course. If it is possible to give you a place, it will be the way to access it.
  • Registration Support: Consult the tutorials through Enroll in your Student Centre application via uoZone. Attend registration labs on Friday, January 5th from 3 to 5 p.m. (VNR 2008), January 8 from 9 a.m. to noon (VNR 2015) or visit the Mentoring Center of the Faculty of Social Sciences at FSS 3023.
