Registration Guide - On-Campus


Information for all students

Please register in your classes as soon as you are able to, in order to build your optimal schedule: we are unable to overload full classes. Additionally, do enroll in all of your EDUC courses for the upcoming year: both Fall and Winter enrollment is available during the same registration appointment!

Do plan to be available from 8.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday! We do have some flexibility in our course offerings, but cannot guarantee that we can accommodate your schedule. Additionally, some 'empty spaces' have been built to allow for group work, professional development, field trips, and other events.

You should also take advantage of Schedule Builder, to help plan your weekly timetable.

Please Note: Not enrolling in all of your courses - especially your Field Experience classes - may result in issues securing you a partner school placement, both in terms of suitability and timeliness. The Field Form and our Field Team's communications operate on the basis of your registration.

Scroll down for more information on registration dates, flagged enrollment issues, as well as your specific Guide, based on whether you are taking your 400 or 500-level courses.

Four-Year and Concurrent students looking for more information on non-Education terms should visit either the First Year Degree Guide, or your pathway's detailed program site.

Taking Summer Courses as an On-Campus Student

On-Campus students have the opportunity to take EDUC 525 and/or EDUC 535 in the Summer term, if desired. Our Summer course offerings are prioritized for Community-Based and Teaching Across Borders students. Once these groups have been able to register, we will open these classes up to all other students, space-pending.

For more information - and to submit your request to take these classes during the stated application dates - check back for our annual Summer Course Request form update.

Due to popular demand, we have developed some of our 400 and 500-level EDUC courses as online offerings specifically for our On-Campus students!

Further permissions are not required: to enroll, check out your Guide, below, and look for those sections that are marked as online offerings. We have 1 - 2 classes available online during each of the 400 and 500-level EDUC terms. Simply enroll in these classes as you would any of your others! Check out the above tab for this year's enrollment dates.

Note I: Adding/dropping/swapping works for these sections in the same way as it does for any others. Please be aware of enrollment capacities, and the last days to swap into an online course from an on-campus (should seats be available), or vice versa!

Note II: Please note that just like your on-campus courses, we will not overload you into an online section should it be full. Registration is first-come, first-served, as it is with your preferred on-campus section times! Please anticipate your schedule accordingly - all of your classes may wind up being in-person!

Note III: Sections reserved for Community-Based students will not be made available to On-Campus students, regardless of seat availability.

Note IV: Please note that after review by the Associate Dean and other faculty members, only specific courses have been chosen to be offered online. If an online offering is not listed under a particular course, it isn't, well, offered!

Note V: Before enrolling in an online section, we encourage you to check out the Zoom Session Schedule for these courses, as classes are not self-paced, and have mandatory synchronous sessions.

  5. EDUC 440 – Field Experience I

    Lab B99

    Please Note: All students will register in Lab B99, and will later be moved to the appropriate section once Field Placements are assigned by our Field Team.

    Field I Dates, 2019: October 14th - 25th. Check out our field page for more information.

EDUC 430 is an on-campus course, scheduled regularly. However, each section corresponds to a different geographic area, which will inform where you are placed for your Field Experience I (EDUC 440). As such, to ensure an equability of access to desired sections for all of our students, this course will remain closed until late May, once the majority of students' enrollment appointments have generated. Students will be emailed - and this space updated - once this course is available to enrollment. Students can enroll in all other Fall and Winter courses in the meantime.

Note I: We cannot overload students into full sections, as our numbers are constrained by our partner teacher schools. Students are thus encouraged to have two or more back-up sections in mind when registering, in case your first choice section fills up. Please note that you will not be able to register in more than one section simultaneously - simply keep your picks written down!

Additionally, do know that:

A. Only Field I is informed by your EDUC 430 registration: future placements will be informed by the 'Field Form' (more information about this form and process will be sent to students by our Field Team in the Fall), and;

B. During Field, all other courses stop - you do not have to attempt to commute from the University to your placement in between classes! Your Field Experiences run the length and breadth of the school week over its stated dates (see the registration information for EDUC 440).

As such, if you are unable to get into your preferred section, please enroll in the next best option: while we cannot overload you, Field I is just two weeks, and your location will not follow you into future Field placements.

Note II: You must still register in EDUC 440 - that is your actual Field Experience course! Registering in EDUC 430 does not get you enrolled in Field (and vice versa).

Note III: French and Second Languages students must register in Section 12. Your registration will be amended accordingly if you enroll in another section (Ie, You do not have a choice of geographic area, due to language constraints). Non-French and Second Languages students who have enrolled in Section 12 will be dropped, and asked to enroll in another section with remaining seat availability.
