  • Ensure you are taking the appropriate courses to fulfill degree requirements
  • Resolve any foreseen issues with your program
  • Lift the hold placed on your account that will prevent you from registering

*Tip – Have 1 set of copies of each form for your records and a copy of the course list to send to the advisor. This will ensure smooth planning and registration.

  2. Have your forms with you on your day of registration.
  3. Check your registration date & time ahead of time on Aurora to well prepare yourself for registration.
  4. After Degree Family Social Sciences students will automatically be permitted (without special permission from the course instructor) to take FSS 2000 level prerequisites as co-requisites for any required FSS 3000 and/or 4000 level courses.  Please note on the course list if you require an override for a particular course or you will run into registration problems.
