Registration information for:
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 first-year degree guide to help you in planning your courses.
If you've already completed your first year of studies in a degree program 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.
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
New student registration assistance can assist new students entering the university from high school with learning how to register in courses. You can call, email, or drop-in for assistance from April to August.
Registration Issues and Exemptions

Sometimes unexpected circumstances can affect your registration. As a student, you have the ability to explain your situation by requesting a registration exemption.
