Block Week Courses

Certain courses are offered during fall and winter term Block Weeks. Block Week courses are typically senior level (300 and above), and run the first week of each term before regular-term lectures begin (see Important Dates).

The following courses at the University of Calgary are considered high demand and therefore have registration restrictions that apply to them. These registration restrictions affect two specific groups of students: Open Studies Non-Degree students and students who are repeating high demand courses. 

You can search in your Student Centre to find block week courses.  See below for more informaiton.
