Registering for Classes
First Year Students
Once you've accepted your offer of admission and paid the admission deposit, you'll be able to start planning and registering in courses. We recommend you review the degree guide and meet with an academic advisor.
If you've already completed some studies at the University of Calgary, you're considered a continuing student. Registration begins near the end of March, check your Student Centre for your enrolment appointment.
If you've completed some studies at another post-secondary institution, but are new to the university, you're considered a transfer student. Course registration for transfer students begins in early April.
In open studies, you'll take regular university credit courses without being admitted to a program leading to a degree, diploma or certificate. Open Studies registration begins July 25.
Visiting and Exchange Students
We welcome applications from any of our exchange partner universities. Contact the exchange office at your home university to find out if we have a formal exchange partnership.
Program advisors are knowledgeable and friendly resources you can consult with about program planning, course selection, and more. We strongly encourage you to meet with your faculty advisor before registration begins.
New Student Registration Assistance
Student Registration Assistance can assist you with learning how to register in courses. You can call, email, or drop-in for assistance from April to August.
