Registration Requirements

Students are required to register in every term. For important deadlines, see Registration Dates and Deadlines on the website of the Office of the Registrar. It is recommended that students register before the start of the term even if registration deadlines fall later. 


Full-time students should register in 9 credits in the Fall and Winter terms. If they are registered in less than 9 credits of courses, they will need to register in the appropriate THES course to reach 9 credits. The last digit of the THES course number indicates how many credits it is worth. For instance, THES 908 is worth 8 credits. Students who are registered in

  • one 3-credit course must register in THES 906;
  • two 3-credit courses must register in THES 903;
  • three 3-credit courses need not register in a THES course; and
  • no courses must register in THES 909

Spring and Summer

Students should register for 6 credits in the Spring and Summer terms by registering in THES 906. Students who were registered in the Winter term preceding the relevant Spring or Summer term will automatically be registered in THES 906. They should always verify whether they have been successfully registered in this course.
