Open Studies

As an Open Studies student, you take regular university credit courses without being admitted to a program leading to a degree, diploma or certificate.

Registration — Getting Started!

Each student is assigned a personal enrolment appointment — an exact date and time you can begin to register. Your enrolment appointment is posted in your Student Centre along the right-hand side under "Enrolment Dates" (see below). You can register anytime from the start of your appointment time to the registration deadline.

Registration Essentials

Open studies students often need to contact the department offering the course they wish to take to gain permission for registration. Once permission is granted, you can register in your Student Centre. To register in graduate level courses, you'll need to obtain permission from the department, and bring this permission to the Registrar's Office for a manual registration.
