All the information you need is on this web site. Read over the sections on Admission, Fee Payment and Registration and familiarize yourself with the information.

Once you have chosen the course or courses you wish to take from the course descriptions, check that you have the required prerequisites and note any restrictions associated with a particular course or area of study.

Non-program (pre- or post-diploma) students have limited access to credit courses and normally require special approval to register. Non-program students who meet the prerequisite requirements may have access to: DRPT2B01, DRPT2B13, DRPT2B19, DRPT2B41, DRPT2C03, DRPT3B01, DRPT3B10, ILLU2B07, MAAD2B08, MAAD2B14, MAAD2B19.

International students must present a valid study permit to Registrarial & Student Services before registering.

Students with outstanding accounts at the College, including but not limited to tuition, library loans or fines, emergency student loans and materials fees may not register unless their account has been settled.




The first time you register for an academic session the Declaration Form will appear. You will be required to complete this form only once for each session. The on-line declaration is equivalent to your signature on a registration form and allows you to verify that your recorded program and immigration status are correct. Click on the pulldown menu to select the applicable Program/Session (e.g. Undergraduate: Summer). Confirm your program status and immigration status by clicking in the appropriate circles and click ‘Submit'.

Note: If your immigration status has changed, you must bring the official documentation (your record of landing or your citizenship card) to the Information Desk in Registrarial & Student Services for verification. Students who do not provide documentation confirming their citizenship will be subject to international tuition fees.

Once you have submitted your Declaration, the Computer Account Agreement pages will open. Note your personal computer account ID and student email address, and read the Acceptable Computer Use policy.

Indicate that you have read and understood the policy by entering your PIN in the appropriate box and click on ‘Submit Agreement'. You will then be transferred to the Registration page.

Select the applicable Program/Session from the pulldown menu.

Enter the course name and number you wish to register (e.g. VISC1B06) in the designated box and click on the ‘Show Available' button.

Click on the course section you wish to add from the Available Primary Offerings list and then click on the ‘Add Course' button on the left bar.

The section you select must be highlighted before you click on the ‘Add Course' button. Note that even if the course only has one section available, you must click on it before clicking on the ‘Add Course' button.

If the course requires registration in a corresponding tutorial or lab, you must also choose (click on) a section in the Available Secondary Offerings list before clicking on the ‘Add Course' button on the left bar.

Read ANY messages which appear - they contain important information concerning your registration selection.

Note: If a course is full, the following message will appear:

“There are no open sections available under this course name and number. Check the course schedule for possible alternatives.”

Review your successful registration as it appears in the List of Registered Courses box. If no courses appear under this heading, your registration was not successful.

Click on the ‘Exit System' button to end your registration session.


Students may confirm their registration by viewing their course schedules, including room numbers, by clicking on 'Register On-line' at the top of the home page. Log on to the Information System and select 'Course Times and Locations' from the Student Access Menu. Students can print their schedules to their local printer be pressing Ctrl+P and selecting the landscape print option.


The College may deregister you from your course(s) for the following reasons:

Not having the proper prerequisites as noted in the Calendar.

Not making the initial fee payment by the deadlines.

Not providing required documentation.


If you change your mind about the course you have registered for and you want to drop it or switch into another course, check the Registration Deadlines for adding courses, and Course Withdrawals / Refunds (under 2004 Summer Fees) for dropping courses. The registration system will only be operational for withdrawals and course changes within specified time limits for each duration.


Students may request an override when they do not meet the registration requirement of the course (for example, "must be a photography student" or "have 9.0 credits”). They may also request an override to gain access to a course if the course is full. The Dean of the Faculty offering the course will decide whether or not to grant the override in these situations.

An override is not registration. Once the Faculty office has entered the override on the computer the student must register via the web following normal registration procedures. Overrides do not prevent deregistration.

Overrides are issued by the Faculty office offering the course. Students who require an override to register should contact the appropriate Faculty office during regular office hours at least three business days before registration closes.

Overrides Are Not Necessary When:

The course has no restrictions, or the student meets the restriction and the course is not full.


New students or students who do not have a current Ontario College of Art & Design student identification card may obtain a valid card from the Plant Services office. Proof of fee payment is required.


All students currently registered at the College have access to the building and designated studios during regular College hours. Access to specialized studios and workshops will be available only at scheduled times.


The Registrarial & Student Services office provides a network of resources to support students in their academic endeavors and personal development. These include academic advising, services for students with disabilities, information about registration and information on academic policies and procedures.
