Before you proceed with course registration, please see if any of the below information applies to you

Planning to take Pre-Professional Studies or to eventually transfer from Augustana?

If you are planning to attend Augustana for Pre-Professional studies (e.g. Medicine, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Commerce, etc.), or if you plan to transfer from Augustana to another faculty or institution in the future, please let your Admissions Advisor know so they can assist you with enrolling in the correct courses. If you have already communicated your Pre-Professional intentions to your Admissions Advisor, you will see this under Program Specific Information – Student Groups in your Academic Requirement Report (this tool will be explained in Step 1). To access the Pre-Professional course planning forms to help you with course registration, please visit:

Note: If you are interested in a vocation that does not have a pre-professional course planning form, please contact your Admissions Advisor for guidance.

Are you a Post-Secondary Transfer Student? You may already have credit (★) in some of the required courses for your degree. Once we receive your final post-secondary transcript(s) and any other required documentation, a transfer credit assessment will be completed to help you with the course registration process. This information will be emailed to your UAlberta email address. If you have any further questions about how your courses will transfer, please contact your Admissions Advisor.

Are you playing on one of Augustana's Vikings Athletic teams? We recommend still enrolling in ★15 (5 courses) per term and seeing how it works for you. Should you decide to reduce your course load before the add/drop deadline, you will be able to do so. Please keep in mind that your league or program may have a specific credit (★) requirement to complete and having a reduced course load may impact your eligibility for scholarships and awards. More information can be found in Step 2 of this registration guide.

It is also important for you to look at your practice schedule when registering in courses. Since you could be away on Friday afternoons for games, it may be in your best interest to limit the number of classes that you take on Friday afternoons.
Are you a Bachelor of Music Student, or a Music Major? If you are a BMus student, you may receive specific course registration suggestions from the Music department once you have successfully completed your audition. BMus students are required to enrol in either a choral or instrumental ensemble and must also complete 2 years of larger ensemble courses. To find more information about available ensemble courses, visit the Music website.
