Course Registration

Prior to registration, you can plan your courses for both Fall and Winter semesters and timetable your schedule:

First or second year students: Course planning resources are available online
Third and fourth year students: Program advisor permission may be required before enrolling in upper year courses
New international students: Meet with an international student advisor upon arrival

 Timetabling Your Courses

Once you have determined what courses to take, you can create a conflict-free timetable (class schedule) for both fall and winter semesters using the Course Schedule.

A conflict-free timetable means your courses are scheduled without any overlapping times. You can timetable your courses on myTRU to make course registration one easy step, or you can also do it manually by completing the blank timetable worksheets. We recommend that you timetable and register for both fall and winter semesters at the same time for optimal selection.
