Bulletin #3: Registration Times; Your Records in Aurora Student; New Registrar's Office Website

Aurora Student – its all coming together
Aurora Student, the University of Manitoba’s new student information system, is now active. This system will offer many services to students related to academic activity (e.g. registration, grades, fee statements) and replaces MyUMinfo Web Services, which be taken off-line at the end of the summer.

Aurora Student is available now for you to find your registration time. Go the University of Manitoba homepage at umanitoba.ca. Click on the link to Aurora Student. Click on Enter Secure Area. To sign in, use the same ID (your student number) and PIN that you used in MyUMinfo. If you have trouble with your PIN, call the Registrar’s Office at 204-474-9420.
Once you are signed in, click on Registration, then Registration Time and Status. You will see the date on which you can start registering for courses. All times start at 8:30 a.m. Once in, you can access the system again to continue your registration anytime, 24/7.

If you intend to Transit from University 1 to Arts or Science, declare a major, declare graduation, or join a College, please check back on the week of July 10.

The process of moving the academic records for all active students into Aurora Student is underway. This is a complicated process that is being done in several stages. When you go to Aurora Student for the first time, you may not be able to view your academic records. We are in the process of moving this information from the old system to Aurora Student. Please be patient. All records will be completed soon. Check back in the week of July 10 or after if you wish to view your academic records in Aurora Student.

In the meantime, if you would like to view a full record of your completed study at the U of M go to MyUMInfo – Web Services. This system will be available until the end of the summer.

Note that all previous courses and grades have been moved to your new Aurora Student record, so you shouldn’t have problems with prerequisites when registering for courses. However, if you encounter unexpected problems with your registration, such as a prerequisite error, please contact your faculty or school general office for assistance.

New Registrar’s Office Website   -   umanitoba.ca/registrar
Check out our new website for information on the new Aurora Student information system and how this system will be used to view academic records, and for registration and other academic activity. The new website also includes information on:

Important Dates and Deadlines; Personal Information and Identification; Fee Information; Final Examinations; Grades and Grade Point Averages; Graduation and Convocation; Withdrawal and Return to Study; Transcripts and Enrolment Verifications. Also included is information for International Students and for students who are thinking about completing some of their Study at Another University.

Note that information on using Aurora Student is being developed. Available now in the ‘What’s New’ section is information on the services available in Aurora Student and how to log in and find your registration time. Instructions are available on how to check to see if you are eligible to register, or if you must first clear a financial or advisor hold. There is also information that will help you understand the Catalog and Schedule information. Coming soon are step by step instructions on how to register.

We are also introducing a new feature called AskUManitoba. This will be your way to ask registration related questions and get a response right away. No waiting for an email to be answered. Get the information you need - when you need it. Simply type in your question and you’ll get an immediate response. AskUManitoba may also point you towards areas of the Registrar’s Office website where you can find more information related to your questions. AskUManitoba will be available on the Registrar’s Office website. Soon, you’ll also find AskUManitoba on the Help pages in Aurora Student. Look for the link to Help pages in the upper right hand corner of each Aurora Student page. Over the summer and fall we’ll be adding to the information included in AskUManitoba and expanding the topics to other areas of the Registrar’s Office.
