Course Registration

The deadline to register for courses beginning in January is December 18, 2018. This is also the deadline to add your name to waitlists for courses that are full.

Prior to registration opening, you can plan your courses for both fall and winter semesters and timetable your schedule:

First or second year students: course selection resources are available online.

Third and fourth year students: program advisor permission may be required before enrolling in upper year courses.

 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.

 Tuition deposit

Before you can register, you must pay a tuition deposit to hold your seat in your courses. This deposit is applied as a payment toward tuition fees. If you have already paid a tuition deposit prior to the Fall term, you do not need to pay this deposit again for Winter.

 What if I am on a waitlist for a course?

If you are on a waitlist for a course, and a spot becomes available, an email will be sent to your TRU Student Email. You will have a limited amount of time to register in the course using myTRU. If you do not register in the course within this time, you will be removed from the waitlist. Please check your email daily if you have been waitlisted.

IMPORTANT: If you are still on a waitlist for a course at the start of the semester, you are expected to attend the first two weeks of the course to keep your spot on the waitlist. If you are not able to attend the first two weeks of the classes, you must make prior arrangements with the instructor. Students may be dropped from the class roster/waitlist for non-attendance.

To ensure you don’t miss important waitlist notifications, you can forward your TRU Student Email to your personal email, following these instructions.
