Graduate students will sometimes require permission from their graduate program to enrol in specific courses. If you are unable to add a course, speak with your graduate program administrator first.
Graduate students are unable to enrol in courses outside of their departments without permission. You may need to complete and submit a Graduate Change of Course Registration form to the Faculty of Graduate Studies, but first check with your graduate program administrator. If you wish to audit a course, the Change of Course Registration form is also required.
You will not be able to register in classes if you have a hold on your account. A hold may be placed on your account for a variety of reasons, such as outstanding admission documents or past due fees. If you have any questions about this, speak to your graduate program administrator or to the Faculty of Graduate Studies’ front desk team.
Always make sure you are aware of the add/drop deadlines for the term. You can view these deadlines in the Graduate Calendar. If you want to add a course after the deadline, you will need to complete a Change of Course Registration form, and you will be charged a late registration fee. If you have any questions about the add/drop deadlines, speak to your Graduate Program Administrator or to the Faculty of Graduate Studies’ front desk team.
Extenuating Circumstances Withdrawal (EW)
If you are unable to complete a course due to unexpected, uncontrollable circumstances, you may be able to apply for an Extenuating Circumstances Withdrawal. EW Applications are reviewed by the Registrar’s Office. More information is available here.
