Register in Courses

by on computer

First Step

You will first need to accept your admission offer and pay the tuition deposit before you can register in courses.

When to Register

You can begin registering in courses on or after your enrolment appointment date, which can be found in Bear Tracks under Manage Classes > My Enrollment Date. In the meantime, once the course listing has been released, you can build a draft schedule.

Building a draft schedule before course registration allows you to search for classes and build a schedule that works in advance. It will also allow you to quickly register in the courses you want on or after your enrollment date.

How to Register in Courses

Course registration is done through Bear Tracks, where you can explore our 6,500+ course options, create a timetable, register in courses, build a draft schedule, and more!
