How to Enrol (With Validation)

When you have finished building your class schedule and your Shopping Cart contains all the classes you want to enrol in, you are ready to do a validation. This ensures that when you go to enrol in these classes, you will not encounter any problems.

Some of the things that validation checks are:

  • Is there a seat available in the class?
  • Does the class schedule conflict with another class that you have selected or one that you are already enrolled in?
  • Have you met the requirements for the class?
  • Is there a hold on your account?


If a class does not validate, you can delete it from your Shopping Cart and add another one. You continue this process until all your selected classes validate successfully.


You can enrol in classes using the Shopping Cart link in the Academics section or your home page.

You can add more classes to the Shopping Cart, by ensuring the Class Search button is selected and then clicking the search button. If you are not familiar with the steps for searching for classes, see the How to Search for Classes job aid.

  1. Click the check-box beside the Classes you want to validate.
  2. Click validate.
    Validation status chart and button back to Shopping Cart

The selected classes are evaluated and a status for each class displays along with a message describing the status.

Validation is like a "test-drive" for enrolment. You are not actually enrolled in the selected classes at this point.


There are two types of messages that you might receive from validation:

Message Status
OK to Add - You can enrol in the class with no problems
Error - A potential problem has been found that could stop you from enrolling in a class. If this occurs, you can select another class and try again. √ or X

Undergraduate and Graduate StudentsNote:

If you have a Hold on your academic record, this needs to be addressed before proceeding with any further enrolment.

The (Help icon) Results Help link will help you interpret some of the messages that you may encounter during validation.

Your submission has been evaluated and the result is shown in the Message column. If you validated all your classes, enrolment should be problem-free!

For help interpreting some of the resulting enrolment messages, click the (Help icon) Results Help link.

Some courses span multiple terms. For example, POL27A/B is a multi-term course where:

  • Part A – is taught in the first term
  • Part B – is taught in the subsequent term


If you selected a multi-term course, you are enrolled in a class for Part A. You will automatically be enrolled in the class for Part B of the same course in the subsequent term.

Enrolment in the Part B is not done immediately, but will occur prior to the opening of enrolment for the subsequent term.

Undergraduate and Graduate StudentsNote:
