The foundation of the enrolment process is the Shopping Cart. It is used in much the same way as you use a shopping cart when shopping in your favourite store. However, instead of filling it with things you want to buy, you fill it with classes you want to enrol in.
When you use the Shopping Cart to enrol in classes you take the following steps to build your class schedule:
Once you have successfully built your class schedule you can proceed to enrol in these classes.
You can enrol from your classes offered using the Shopping Cart link in the Academics section or your home page.
This shows the content of your Shopping Cart for the term you selected. You will use it to hold the classes that you are considering enrolling in as you build your class schedule.
This is a filtered version of your Advisement Report that shows only courses you have completed and classes that are offered to your program and plan in the term you selected. Just like your Advisement Report, you can scroll down and see your satisfied and unsatisfied requirements and their status.
This shows classes available to fulfill your unsatisfied requirements. From these, you can select a class to add to your Shopping Cart by clicking the course description.
If the course list is long, only the first part of it displays. To view the full list, click the View All link or click to view the full list in a separate window.
This is the description of the course from the course catalog along with the schedule of classes offered in the term you have selected.
If the list of scheduled courses is long, click the View All link to see the complete list.
The class that you selected has been added to your Shopping Cart. You can continue to build your class schedule by searching for and adding more classes as described above.
The selected classes are evaluated and a status for each class displays along with a message
Validation is like a "test-drive" for enrolment. You are not actually enrolled in the selected classes at this point.
There are three types of messages that you might receive from validation:
|OK to Add - You can enrol in the class with no problems||√|
|Warning - The class may be added||√|
|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 contact your program department||√ or X|
If you have a Hold on your academic record, this needs to be addressed before proceeding with any further enrolment.
The () Results Help link will help you interpret some of the messages that you may encounter during validation.
Once you have finished building your class schedule and all your selected classes have been validated, you can proceed to enrol in them.
This is where you confirm that you have selected all the right classes for enrolment. To make changes, click the PREVIOUS button at the bottom of the page.
Your submission has been evaluated and the result is shown in the Message column. If you validated all you classes, enrolment should be problem-free!
Some courses span multiple terms. For example, POL27A/B is a multi-term course where:
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.
You should now view your Advisement Report and to confirm you are enrolled in the applicable class(es). See the How to View my Advisement Report job aid for details.
