Course Enrolment

Continuing undergraduate students are assigned a time and date to access the registration and enrolment module (REM). Continuing students typically enrol in June/July for Fall/Winter courses, and March for Summer courses. New students typically enrol in April/May.

Continuing students should schedule an academic advising appointment before enrolling to ensure they are picking the right courses. After their advising appointment and once access is granted, students should enrol immediately.

Important Information for Economics Majors

The department initially reserves courses for ECON majors. All ECON majors should have access to their major courses. If you are having difficulty, it is usually due to a financial block, academic decision or degree issue. Please contact the department’s Undergraduate Office with any questions or concerns regarding course enrolment.

If a course is full, but there is physical space in the classroom, students can request permission to enrol from the instructor until the last day to add a course with permission. Refer to the Important Dates website. Students may approach an instructor with a departmental Permission to Enrol form (available at the department), which the instructor may or may not sign. Please note that obtaining the instructor's permission does not guarantee enrolment.

Important Information for non-ECON Majors

LA&PS ECON majors have first priority to enrol. Available spaces may be released to other majors where possible. Non-ECON students are encouraged to keep trying the online enrolment system because spaces may become available at short notice.
