Important information and tips!


Do not Course Intend for more courses than you need. 

The more courses you add, the more courses there are to be successfully scheduled into your timetable, and therefore the greater the risk of a time conflict!


Complete Course Intentions for both the Fall and Winter term.

Priority should be given to completing your REQUIRED Module courses first as not every course runs every year.


Do not leave courses in your shopping cart!      

Click the FINISH ENROLLING button when you are done. This will complete the course intention process.

Avoid taking courses out of sequence with your degree structure.

Any time you step out of sequence with your degree you run the risk of encountering scheduling difficulties.  This may delay your degree completion.

Courses requiring ‘Departmental Permission’.  

If a course requires ‘Dept Permission’ it means you cannot add it yourself.  You will need to email either (or the department offering the course) during Course Intention Period to have that course manually added to your intentions.
