How to add, drop or audit a course
Add: enrol in a course
Drop: withdraw from a course
You can do each of these enrolment functions on RAMSS. RAMSS uses a Shopping Cart-style system. Please follow the step-by-step instructions available on the Enrolment Services and Student Records website. Check the Significant Dates to make sure you add, drop and swap your courses by the published deadline.
Note: Dropping classes will affect your OSAP funding. You must report these changes to the Student Financial Assistance Office.
For programs who use self-enrolment, you will be notified of the date range in which you can add, drop and swap classes for the next term. Log in to RAMSS and choose “Enrolment Dates” to confirm your enrolment dates.
Some graduate courses are available for auditing. This means you enrol in the course as an “Audit” student, attend lectures and learn the subject, but do not get academic credit.
You need to get permission in advance from the Teaching Department to audit a course. You can only audit day lecture courses; labs and continuing education courses are not available for audit. Also, Audit courses are not eligible for financial assistance. On your Transcript, instead of a grade, we will assign the “AUD” designation. The audited course is not used in your GPA or Academic Standing calculations. The PDF fileGraduate Course Audit Form, with detailed instructions, is online. Consult the Significant Dates to make sure that you apply before the published deadlines.
If you wish to take a course at another postsecondary institution for credit toward your Ryerson degree, you must get permission in advance.
The approval is known as a Letter of Permission. The process can take several days and, depending on the course, may involve the approval of multiple departments. Give yourself plenty of time to get all the needed approvals.
The PDF fileGraduate Student Letter of Permission form contains detailed instructions, regulations, timelines and payment information.
