 Before you begin, you will need to take care of the basics...

NetID
Your NetID is your passport to student online services at Queen’s, from your student email to the SOLUS Student Centre. Without it, you will be unable to access services, so securing your NetID is the first step. If you do not yet have a Queen’s NetID and password, go to http://netid.queensu.ca/activate in order to activate one.
MyQueensU Portal
The MyQueensU Portal functions as a personal ‘home page’ for students. After logging in to the Portal with your NetID and password, you will be able to access your Queen’s email account and enter the SOLUS Student Centre. You will also be able to access the Message Centre, where important notices will be posted. The MyQueensU Portal is located at http://my.queensu.ca
SOLUS Student Centre
The SOLUS Student Centre is the place where you will find everything relating to your student academic and financial record at Queen’s. Once you have logged into the MyQueensU Portal, click on the red ‘SOLUS’ icon in the top right hand corner of the page.*

Queen's Student Accessibility Services (QSAS)

Students with disabilities who require academic accommodations are strongly encouraged to register with Queen’s Student Accessibility Services (QSAS). 

Students are required to submit documentation that verifies they are a student with a disability and describes how their disability impacts them in school.  More information about our disability documentation requirements can be found at:  http://www.queensu.ca/studentwellness/accessibility-services/information-students/documentation-requirements

Students can begin the registration process online.  Alternatively, the can submit their documentation in one of several secure ways.  More information can be found on our website. 

Once their disability documentation has been reviewed, QSAS will contact students to book a confidential, personal appointment with an accessibility advisor.  Together with the student, advisors develop a support plan that may include accommodations, referrals to on-campus services, and other supports as needed. 

Students are encouraged to contact QSAS if they have any questions about their eligibility for services, how to register, or to book an advising appointment.

Access to your Personal Information on SOLUS
If you would like the University to release financial and/or academic information to an individual (including a parent, or to an agency external to the University) you must complete an authorization through SOLUS Student Centre. This authorization will stay in effect until you choose to cancel it.
As you manage your personal information on SOLUS, please be aware that the collection and use of this information by Queen’s is governed both by law (the Ontario Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, or FIPPA) and by the policies approved by the University Senate www.queensu.ca/accessandprivacy/act
Good Habits!
Whether you are new to Queen’s, or are returning to continue your studies, there are simple things you can do in order to ensure a successful year.
* Check your Queen’s email on a regular basis– the University will only communicate with you via your Queen’s email account.
* Check your student financial account often – whether you have a credit or an outstanding balance (e.g. tuition, student activity fees, residence fees, transcript charges, overdue library fees) your up-to-date account balances are available online through the SOLUS Student Centre. Queen’s will not send reminders or invoices for amounts outstanding, so it will be your responsibility to check your account regularly.
* Mark your calendar with important dates – registration and fee due dates,as well as sessional dates specific to your Faculty or School, are available anytime at www.queensu.ca/registrar/resources/sessional-dates
* OSAP applicants, please check your online OSAP account throughout the summer to make sure that your OSAP application is complete and that all necessary documents have been submitted. Access your account at ontario.ca/osap
 Make sure your mailing address is up to date in SOLUS! This is important, so that any mail you receive gets to you!
Be Pro-Active!
In July, the registration process will begin. Registration consists of three steps:
STEP 1: Course Selection - Choose your courses during your Enrolment Appointment time in July and/or have required courses loaded by your Faculty / School.
STEP 2: Tuition and Student Assistance Levy payment
Pay your Fall Tuition and Student Assistance Levy by September 1st.
You will not receive any invoices from Queen’s, and will be responsible for keeping track of any outstanding credits or fees (e.g. tuition fees). Your up-to-date account balances are available online via the SOLUS Student Centre.
STEP 3: Have your Student Card Validated
Over the summer, new students will be asked to submit a photo that we will use to create a Student Card. During Move In Day, new students will pick-up their Student Card and have it validated. In order to have your card validated, you must be enrolled.
Registration is not complete until ALL steps are complete!
