Registration tips for Fall, Winter and Summer Term

Fall and Winter Term Registration

  • Registration access: Once it is your registration date and time, you will have 24-hour access to the registration system until the final registration date for that course.  Although students may register on weekends, no registration times will begin on the weekend.
  • Reserved space in classes:  Spaces in some course sections may be reserved for students in specific programs, normally only until the first week of August.  Reserve details are included in the Class Schedule.
  • Select courses will include a Waitlist function, allowing students to be added to a waitlist and notified when a space becomes available.
  • Limited Access does not currently apply to students who have previously been subject to this restriction for three consecutive terms. Students will be able to register to repeat a course (or equivalent) during their initial registration time.
  • Course Drop and Add dates:
    • Course Drop date – the last date to drop a course with a refund.
    • Course Add Date – the last date to add a course in the revision period.

Students must have an active UM email account to receive waitlist notifications.

Registration revisions

The registration revision period is the first two weeks of the start of term.  This period is considered the 'add and drop' period, where you can make changes to your course or timetable choice without academic or financial penalty. Courses dropped during this period are not recorded on official transcripts or student records, and a tuition refund will be granted for dropped courses that have already been paid for.

During the registration revision period, you can: 

  • Add a new class if you changed your mind about your course subjects, or if a course that was previously full is now available.  
  • Switch a lecture or lab to a more preferred day/time. 
  • Register in a course for which you were waitlisted if you receive notification that space is available. 

Once the registration revision period ends, you can still Voluntarily Withdraw from a class, however, it will be recorded on your transcript and student history and you will not receive a tuition refund.
