All graduate students admitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies must register when they begin their studies. As a graduate student, you must maintain continuous registration and pay appropriate fees until your degree is completed. For a complete policy on registration, please visit the Graduate Calendar.
You must register annually, at the time of your registration anniversary, through your Student Centre before the registration deadline for that session. Please visit the Course Registration Guide for detailed system instructions as well as up-to-date course registration.
Yes, all graduate students must register each year. Students enrolled in thesis-based Master’s or Doctoral programs will be considered full-time unless the Graduate Program allows for part-time registration and specific approval is given to an individual student. Talk to your program administrator if you have questions about this option.
Course-based students must register annually, even if they don’t plan to take a course until a later term.
Fees are due by the fee payment deadline date for that session as specified in the Graduate Calendar. See the Academic Schedule for dates.
You may register online after the deadline; however a late registration fee of $60.00 will be assessed to your account. Payment is due no later than 10 days after the registration is activated.
Students who do not register by a specified deadline date will be withdrawn for failure to register.
You can find full details on your student financial account through your Student Centre.
If you withdraw from your program or fail to register and are withdrawn by the Faculty of Graduate Studies, you must apply for re-admission.
Full and part-time requirements are listed in the Graduate Calendar. Generally, course-based students must register in 3 full courses (6 half-courses) in the registration year to be considered full-time. Students in course-based programs must take a minimum of one half-course per registration year.
Full-time thesis-based students will normally work an average of 40 hours per week on program-related activities. Program-related activities include course work, systematic reading, laboratory or other research work related to the production of thesis proposals and/or defence of thesis and thesis proposals, field work, and study for candidacy examinations
You must submit a Change of Program or Status form to the Faculty of Graduate Studies in order to change your registration status (i.e., full-time to part-time, Masters to PhD)
If you wish to make course changes after the registration deadline, you must submit a Change of Course Registration. A $60 late fee will be applied.
It is expected that students in course-based programs will complete at least half of the required courses in the first two years of the program.Thesis-based Master’s students have a maximum of 4 years and Doctoral students a maximum of 6 years to complete their programs except where noted in the detailed program description.
In extenuating circumstances, students may be able to apply for extension for their studies. Discuss the possibility of an extension with your supervisor and Graduate Program Director. Each request must be accompanied by a completed Request for Extension form.
