COURSE SELECTION / ENROLLMENT
E-MAIL ACCOUNT POLICY
All students in full- and part-time undergraduate degree programs (as well as Diploma in Arts students), are required to activate and maintain a Ryerson University firstname.lastname@example.org Matrix e-mail account, which shall be an official means by which they will receive University communications.
Procedures for student activation and use, as well as the Ryerson Student Computing Guidelines, are available on the Ryerson University Computing and Communication Services web site: www.ccs.ryerson.ca/students. Under the section ‘Services’, select e-mail.
NEWLY-APPROVED PROGRAM STUDENTS
New students will be provided with detailed course enrollment information outlining the procedures they must follow. General information on course enrollment may be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Newly-approved students who have paid their tuition fees, will access their timetables during the specified time during Orientation Week. Students who do not do so, cannot be guaranteed space in their program unless special written permission has been given.
Students are academically and financially responsible for all courses and charges that accrue as a result of the Course Selection, or Open Enrollment period, unless the Registration and Records Office is notified in writing. Non-attendance/non-payment is not acceptable for the removal of courses and fee charges.
Returning students enrolled in degree and diploma programs are required to participate in the course selection process in early March for the following Fall and Winter terms.
Returning eligible students who completed the course selection process will receive a timetable indicating the courses in which they are enrolled. Students who did not select courses, and who return to enroll the following Fall, Winter, or Spring/Summer terms, will be charged a $50 (subject to change) Premium Enrollment fee. There is no guarantee that space will be available in courses. Students normally will not be allowed to enroll for courses unless they have passed the immediate prerequisite or other prior level courses within the previous three academic years. Students with outstanding financial accounts from previous years will be prohibited from further enrollment, until satisfactory payment arrangements have been made.
Students are academically and financially responsible for all courses and charges that accrue as a result of the Course Selection, or Open Enrollment period, unless the Registration and Records Office is notified in writing within university deadlines.

GENERAL COURSE ENROLLMENT INFORMATION
1. Students are responsible for ensuring that the course(s) in which they enroll in, is correct and appropriate to their degree plan and will meet the requirements for graduation. Students must remember that they are financially and academically responsible for each course they enroll in.
2. Courses within a program are grouped into semesters. Students who do not take courses within a single semester cannot be guaranteed a complete timetable.
3. Course offerings may vary from term to term. All courses listed within a table under a particular program, may not necessarily be offered in all terms.
4. Some course enrollment adjustments must be authorized by the student’s program department, and all must be initiated by the dates listed in this Calendar. Students are permitted to make changes to their course enrollment during the specified course selection period each term.
5. Course/Section Confirmation: Students have full access to Ryerson's Administrative Management Self Service (RAMSS) to verify their courses and sections in which they are enrolled. Students are required to verify this information by the end of the first month of the term. Students are required to make any necessary corrections with their program department within two weeks. A $100 (subject to change) Addition to Enrollment Record fee will be levied for each course or grade added to a student’s enrollment after the following dates: Fall term - November 4th, Winter term - March 3rd. Students are academically and financially responsible for all courses selected, unless they make corrections by the designated deadline.
6. Students wishing to drop courses without academic penalty should consult the “Significant Dates” section of this Calendar for deadline dates. Students must obtain permission from their program department/school.
7. Courses Not Counted/Course Replacement: Students are required to advise the Registration and Records Office at the time of enrollment, of courses which are being substituted for previously failed courses, or of courses which are not in their curriculum.
8. Students will obtain final grades at the end of term only for those courses in which they are officially enrolled. The onus is on the students to ensure that they are officially enrolled in courses being taken. A $15 (subject to change) search fee per course will be charged if students have not enrolled properly but have attended classes. There is no guarantee that grades will be found by this search.
9. Program Change/Course Directive/Curriculum Substitution: Students are required to complete the curriculum for their program as set out in this Calendar. Any requests for curriculum/course directive/course substitutions or other modifications to program requirements must be approved by the Chair/Director of both the appropriate program and teaching departments. Course Directive/Curriculum Substitution forms are available from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the Information Centre counter and the Curriculum Advising Office. Failure to obtain written permission on the appropriate form and within the established deadline will result in ineligibility to graduate.
School of Business Management
1. Full-time students are limited to a maximum of seven credit courses per semester, including continuing education courses. Exceptions may be made only with the prior approval of the School of Business Management.
Students who are found to be enrolled in one or more courses in excess of the aforesaid regulations, will have their program reduced accordingly at the discretion of the School.
