Steps to register for UM classes

Your Aurora account will help you learn about the specific requirements of the program you've chosen. You'll create a timetable for your classes and register. A quick check in Aurora will tell you how much you owe and how to pay your tuition fees. At tax time, it will provide your tax receipt. Let Aurora take the worry out of registration.

UM policies you may need to review

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.
