Course Registration

Registration in courses and all course changes must be reported on an academic change form no later than one month after commencement of instruction. This extension for registration of course selection does not imply that the student has the right to enter a course after commencement of instruction. Permission to do so is at the discretion of the instructor and the Program Director.

Students who elect to drop a course after the course change deadline must obtain Division approval.


Students must register for all courses that they plan to take in a particular session. This should be done at registration or soon after, and no later than the posted deadlines. Any subsequent changes in courses must be recorded and approved on an academic change form.

Students may be required to pre-select their optional courses. Information and deadlines for course pre-selections will be provided by the School of Policy Studies.

NOTE: A graduate course offered jointly with an undergraduate course cannot be taken for credit by any student who previously obtained credit for the undergraduate course.

Primary Courses

The courses prescribed for a student's approved program of study are designated as primary. Courses offered are normally graduate courses (800 and 900 series).

Secondary Courses

Courses additional to the student's approved program are designated as secondary. These may be taken only with the permission of the School and the instructor. In a secondary course, a standing of less than second class may be accepted, however, the mark will be entered on the student's transcript.

Course Audit

Students registered in a degree program may audit courses provided they obtain the permission of the School and the course instructor.
