Students who do not provide documentation confirming their citizenship will be subject to international tuition fees.

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.

To view your confirmed course schedule, click on 'Register On-line' at the top of the home page. Log on to the Student Information System and select 'Course Times and Locations' from your Student Access Menu. Print your schedule by pressing Ctrl+P and selecting the landscape print option. Dropped courses may appear on your schedule until the next business day. Course locations (room numbers) will be displayed on your schedule at least two weeks before classes begin.


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

- Not having the proper prerequisites as noted in the Calendar.
- 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 2007 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 completed 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. Note: Late registration fees may apply.

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 Campus Services & Security, 115 McCaul Street, Level 1. Proof of fee payment is required.


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