Spring Registration Process and Procedures


All course offerings for Spring Term are listed in these two places: 

Spring Term begins on May 6, 2019.  Courses are scheduled to start/end on various dates throughout the Term.

Watch your Webmail in early March!

Current students and new admissions:  An email message is sent around March 4, 2019 to your University webmail account giving you a Spring Term registration start date and time for the WebAdvisor/Student Planning online registration system. 

Check your webmail account regularly! Log in to your email account at using the same User ID and password as your WebAdvisor account.

Another way to find out your start date/time is through WebAdvisor:  Log in to WebAdvisor, click on "Current Students," and under "Registration," choose "View My Registration Time."

Register on your assigned date/time

Your assigned registration start date/time will be between March 19 and April 2, 2019, if you are a newly admitted student or a student continuing immediately after Fall/Winter Term.  If you have not been attending classes at the University for one or more years, see Application for Continuance.

Your registration start date/time is assigned to you based upon credit hours successfully completed as of the previous December and your grade point average.

Your registration start date/time is the EARLIEST that you can register using WebAdvisor/Student Planning.  Log into WebAdvisor, with your username and password, click "Current Students" and under the heading Registration, choose "Student Planning/Registration," and then click on the "Student Planning" tab. Click "My Progress" to see what you have completed, what you have planned, what you are about to complete, and what you will need to take to complete your degree.

Please note your start date/time in your mobile device, laptop, tablet, 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, and make sure you have the necessary prerequisite(s), permission forms, or Honours Form. 

Students use the "Student Planning" online tool, accessible through WebAdvisor, to register for courses.  For more information and instructions, please see:

On your registration start date & time click on "Plan & Schedule" found under the Student Planning tab.

Other Important Notes:

  • Registration in Spring Term courses with prerequisites is provisional pending the successful completion of the Winter Term prerequisite course(s).

  • In the PDF timetable the courses offered, dates, days and times, and exam dates/times shown are based on information available as of the date found at the bottom of the page and may be subject to change.  Should there be discrepancies between information in the PDF timetable schedule and information found in Student Planning, the latter will prevail.

  • All notifications of cancelled courses, new courses, wait lists, as well as day and time changes are sent to your University webmail account. It is the student’s responsibility to check their university email account daily. For your own security, do not share your WebAdvisor or your email and password with other students.

  • The University reserves the right to remove students without notice from lab sections if they are not registered in a lecture section.  Also, students registered in two or more lab sections with a lecture will be removed from the extra lab sections.  All science and non-science courses that require a laboratory component need only ONE lab section (exceptions: Education courses EDUC-2511/2512 and EDUC-3810/3811).  A lab section is required for a student registering off the waitlist when a seat becomes available.
