Cohort Schedules 2022/23

What is the Cohort Program?

The cohort program places new business students in groups with set timetables. Each pattern has been designed to be taken as an integrated whole and students are only cohort students (if at all) during their first year in Business. 

Submitting your Cohort Preferences

Once you receive Early or Final Admission to the Bachelor of Commerce as a cohort student, please review the cohort schedule options. Rank the cohort patterns in order of preference, and submit your cohort preferences online via our Google form.

Note: This Google form is restricted to users with a University of Alberta email address. Please ensure you are signed out of any other existing Google accounts and signed in only with your UofA email to access this form.

Please take note:

  • There are 9 cohorts in the 2022/23 academic year. We advise that you review the cohort schedules carefully to make note of the mode of delivery for each course in the schedule. For instance, some lectures are delivered online whereas the accompanying lectures are in-person
  • Cohort preferences will be considered, but students will be assigned to their cohort patterns per availability. There is limited space available in each cohort pattern and students may be placed anywhere from their first to their last choice.
  • Once a cohort pattern is assigned it cannot be changed.
  • Failure to submit your cohort preferences in a timely manner will result in loss of your cohort registration status.
  • Students must register themselves in the courses in their assigned cohort pattern when registration opens in May. Please check Bear Tracks for your assigned enrollment date. If you are a transfer student, ensure that you have changed your program code in BearTracks as you will not be able to register in your courses if this has not been completed.
  • Failure to register in your assigned cohort courses may result in your space being given away to another student.
