study. To determine if you require advising, go to your Faculty or
School's advising information page by clicking on the appropriate
Step 2 —
In order to access the Web Registration System (MyConcordia portal), you will need your Netname and password, your student ID number, which is on your Letter of Acceptance (new students) or your Concordia record (returning students).
The Undergraduate Calendar is useful if you wish to see a course description or verify program requirements.
You should prepare for your registration by consulting the Undergraduate Class Schedule and by filling out the Registration Worksheet and Timetable Planner available below as PDF files. Please note during peak registration periods the system has a time limit of 30 minutes. Using these documents in advance will help you plan your course selection and enable you to save time.
Step 3 — Plan Your Timetable and Complete the Registration Worksheet
To facilitate the
process and prepare a conflict-free schedule, we recommend you use a
printed version of the Registration Worksheet
and Timetable Planner. These forms are
available as Adobe PDF files and require Acrobat Reader. If you do
not have Acrobat Reader, you can download a free version of the

Registration Start Dates*
* A start date is the first date on which you may begin the registration process for both summer and Fall/Winter.
If you are a
returning Concordia student, your personal registration start date
can be obtained on the student portal at
MyConcordia.ca under the Registration tab.
In the example above: program length (Minimum credits
required) is 111 credits minus 12 credits completed
minus 12 potential credits equals 87
credits to completion. Once you know the credits to completion,
refer to the CHART OF REGISTRATION DATES to determine your start

Step 5 —
Registration System Availability
registration “start dates”, the system is programmed to be available
from 6:00 a.m. onward. After your original “start date”, the system
is available at all times, 22 hours a day, seven days a week, from
04:00 a.m. to 02:00 a.m. The registration system may be extremely
busy at 6:00 a.m. on each new “start date” so it is strongly
recommended that you wait until later in the day.
Step 6 —
2) Program of Study Verification
If a course has
reached its registration limit, you will be offered the possibility
to view other sections of that course that might be available to
you. If there are none, select another course. Don't forget,
however, that students will be adding and dropping courses
throughout the year and places may become free. You will have ample
opportunity to drop courses and make any other changes you wish. In
addition, in mid-June, failed students are withdrawn from all
courses by the University, thereby freeing space in courses.
Remember to pay attention to the symbols beside the course name when
reading the course listings; some courses will not normally have
general space available, as they are reserved for students in
specific programs, as explained in How to
Read the Course Listings.
If the section
you selected is not available, you will see a list of other sections
of that course that are open to you in the current or next term, if
If you are trying
to add a course for the Winter Term and there is no more space, you
will not be advised of available sections for the Fall Term. If the
Fall Term has not started, however, you may wish to verify the
possible availability of the same course in the Fall Term.
to register for both Fall and Winter courses at the same time - do
not wait until later in the Fall to register for your Winter courses
as you may find them filled to capacity.
Please note: Once the last date for registration has
passed, you may not make section changes.
Dropping a course
means you have decided you no longer wish to remain registered in
it. There are two types of course withdrawals and both are
controlled by deadline dates shown in
Term Dates and Deadlines:
not enter) - The DNE date is generally one to two weeks
after the first day of classes. A withdrawal (drop) before the DNE
deadline date is treated as if you were never in the course. There
will be no entry on your student record for that course and you will
not be charged tuition and other fees for that course. If you have
already paid for the course, you will receive financial credit for
(discontinue) - The DISC date is later in the term. A
withdrawal (drop) after the DNE date, but before the DISC deadline
date allows you to stop attending that course with no academic
penalty. Unlike the DNE, however, the course will remain on your
student record with an entry of DISC and you will be held
financially responsible for the payment of 100% of tuition and other
fees, including the Winter portion of a full-year course (/3).
If you attempt to
DNE or DISC a course that is a corequisite or prerequisite to
another course for which you have registered, you will not be
permitted to do so until you also drop the second course.
Please note: Not attending classes, or informing an instructor of an intent to withdraw, does not constitute official withdrawal, nor does it entitle a student to a refund of fees or cancellation of registration. Without formally dropping the course by the appropriate academic withdrawal deadline, non-attendance of a class will result in the assignment of a failing grade.
