Fall/winter LORIS Registration Instructions for Part-time Students
The process for registering using LORIS is dependent upon students having confirmed their program selection and can be done by part-time students in one of the two following methods;

1. Currently or previoulsy registered part-time students were notified by email early February, with instructions to confirm their program. If you did this, you will be able to register according to your year, once registration opens, as outlined in the information found here.

2. If you did not confirm your program at that time or did not receive the email, you will need to fill out the appropriate Program Selection Form, found here. You will then be able to register after the date specified here, according to your year.

Please note if your status is unclassified or post-degree, you should compete the Program Selection Form - Faculty of Arts. On that form, you will need to indicate "unclassified" or "post-degree" in the Current Degree Program field, select "Other" as your Degree and then click on "n/a" for Year. As an unclassified or post-degree student, you will then be able to register after July 10th as outlined in the information found here.Be sure to register before July 13th, to avoid late registration charges.

Paper registration continues to be available using the Intent to Register form or the Course Change Request form. Return either form with your Online Learning Form to the Office of the Registrar. Printable forms are available online from the form section of the
Office of the Registrar and Online Learning websites
