Fall & Winter Registration Process and Procedures


All students registered in this past Fall and Winter terms, as well as newly admitted students, are assigned an online WebAdvisor/Student Planning Registration start date and time for the upcoming Fall/Winter Term.

This information is e-mailed to your University Webmail account.

  • Look for an email notification in your University Webmail account in late June.
  • Your assigned registration time will be in July or August.

Check your University Webmail account regularly! 

Another way to find out your assigned registration date and time is through Student Planning. Log in to WebAdvisor or the Student Planning self-serve sign-in (  From the Student Planning home page you will find on the left side a grey bar.  Click Academics, Student Planning, and then Plan & Schedule.  Click the left or right arrows to Fall Term or Fall/Winter Schedule screen.  Here you will see your registration start date and time.


You can still register online up until the start of the Fall and Winter Terms. However, space availability becomes increasingly limited as it gets closer to the start of classes and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

What You Need to Know about Your Registration Date/Time:

  • Your assigned registration start date and time is the earliest that you can register and is based on your credit hours completed and Grade Point Average (GPA).

  • Please mark your assigned registration start date/time in your smart phone, iPad, lap top/notebook, or monthly planner, as this is your optimal time to register. You'll have your best selection of courses.

  • Plan in advance what course(s) you need to take. Make sure you have the necessary prerequisite(s), Permission Forms, or Honours Forms prior to your registration start date and time.

  • Fall-Winter 2020-21:  Most courses will be delivered online, but in various ways.  Please read the meeting information and notes carefully to determine exactly how each course will be delivered and whether you can be available at any required days/times.  For more information on course delivery, please see Online Courses

  • If you are unable to register on your assigned day and time or if you missed it for whatever reason, you can still register online up until the start of the Fall and Winter Terms.
