Registration Reminders for 2009-2010



·         The last day to add Fall Term and Fall/Winter courses taught during the regular term schedule is Wednesday, September 23. Most students will register for courses through Aurora Student, but remember that if you are repeating a course you must seek approval from an advisor in your academic unit before registering.  

·         The 50% refund of tuition fees on one term courses has been eliminated. Refer to the Refunds web page for details. The deadline to drop a Fall Term course with a full refund of tuition fees is Wednesday, September 23.  You may drop Fall Term courses after this date, but you will receive no refund and the drop will appear on your record as a VW (Voluntary Withdrawal). The deadline to VW from Fall Term courses is Wednesday, November 18, 2009.  
Note that courses taught outside the standard term schedule will have different refund and withdrawal deadlines. Refer to the course outline or teaching unit for further information.

·         The UM will not cancel/de-register students from current term courses due to non-payment of fees. You are financially and academically responsible for all courses in which you are registered after the Revision deadline - September 23, 2009. Failure to pay for your courses will not result in a de-registration of courses in the current term. Students who fail to pay for courses will be placed on Hold and will be de-registered from courses that begin in Winter Term.  If you have registered and have changed your mind about attending, be sure to formally withdraw from courses through Aurora Student to avoid being held responsible for the associated fees.

·         Aurora Student is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The September 23rd deadline is 11:59 p.m. central daylight time.  It is strongly advised that you intend to add or drop courses you should do so before 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday while student services office are open to provide assistance and that you do not leave your add or drop until the last minute.


For questions or assistance, please contact your faculty advising office, the University 1 Student Help Centre (U1 students), or the Registrar’s Office.
