Course Registration!

Registering for your first term of university classes can be a big step - so we're here to help! All first year University of Regina students are invited to attend a course registration event. These on-campus events are the best way to meet your academic advisor, register in fall courses, and get answers to any academic questions you have - all in one place! You can check out the upcoming course registration events below.

Before you get started:

  • Make sure you have accepted your offer of admission. You can't register for classes without doing so!
  • You only need to attend one course registration event (ie: UR Beginning or one URB 2.0 event)
  • Students registered through Campion College, Luther College, or First Nations University of Canada must contact their college directly to sign up for academic advising
  • If you are a transfer student, please contact your faculty directly to book an appointment

Course Registration Events

All course registration events are free to attend but you must register for the event in advance!

Option 1: UR Beginning 2019! - Friday, May 3rd

This event has now passed. Please select a different Course Registration Event from the options listed below!

This is the official first day of open registration for new students for Fall 2019! You will register for either a morning or afternoon advising session that includes the welcome session, academic advising, course registration, and campus business. There are additional optional sessions and activities happening all day including campus and housing tours, the student club and info expo, a mock lecture, and more. If you want to do the extra sessions and activities, we recommend planning to be on campus for the full day!

Guests are welcome to attend this event but they are unable to join students in the Advising and Course Registration Session due to computer lab capacities. There will be a Parent and Family session, along with the optional activities, that guests can attend while students are registering for courses!

Option 2: URB 2.0 Events

If you are unable to attend the full UR Beginning event, you can choose a URB 2.0 event instead.

Course Registration Quick-Guide

If you are attending a Course Registration Event, you will go through these steps with your Faculty Advisor during the Advising and Registration Session at the event!

Step 1: Review your degree requirements.

You can do this using the undergraduate course calendar. It’s a good idea to print (or screenshot!) the program outline for your intended degree. You can then work to register in those courses. Keep in mind, some courses have pre-requisites that may restrict registration. It’s a good idea to start with your 100-level requirements.

Step 2: Use Visual Schedule Builder to search for classes (and find the course reference numbers)

You can now search for the classes you need to take (as per your program outline). Don’t forget to select 2018 Fall term. You can select, deselect, search again, start over as many times as you like until you have a potential schedule that works for you. Click here for help with the VSB.

Note: You are not yet registered for classes.

**At this step, be sure to note the course reference numbers (CRNs) for the courses you plan to register in.

Important Notes for Building a Schedule:

  • Most courses are worth 3 credit hours, thus if you are taking 4 courses, you are likely registered in 12 credit hours.  A full course load is 15 credit hours per semester.  Normally, you need to be in at least 9 credit hours to be considered a full time student.
  • Most Bachelor’s degrees consists of 120 credit hours, generally attained through 40 courses, each worth 3 credit hours.  Programs consist of courses in the major area of study and electives.  Some programs have experiential components (ie practicums or fieldwork) that can be worth up to 15 credit hours.  See the Undergraduate Calendar for detailed information on each program.

Lectures (3 hours each week) Most U of R courses consist of lectures given by the instructor.  The size of 1st year lecture classes varies anywhere between 35 and 400 students.

Seminars (1 hour each week) Large lecture classes sometimes break into small groups to allow for further discussion of course material.  1st year psychology and sociology courses often have seminars.

Labs (1 to 3 hours each week) A course that requires practical work may have a lab portion.  Some courses in geography, languages, math, computer science, and the natural sciences have labs.

Homework Expect to do a lot of homework because in university much of your learning is done independently.  You can expect to put in 2 hours reading, preparing for lectures, writing papers, researching and studying for every hour you spend in class.

Step 3: Register in your desired courses in UR Self-Service using the CRN’s.

Now that you’ve found classes you’d like to register in, you need to do so in UR Self-Service. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use UR Self-Service, and accompanying videos.

Step 4: Meet with your Academic Advisor

If you attend a Course Registration Event, you will go through Steps 1 - 3 with the Academic Advisor from your faculty. If you have gone through Steps 1 - 3 on your own and are not attending a Course Registration Event, we highly recommend you book Academic Advising if you haven't done so already. Even if you successfully register for coureses, it is essential to chat with an Advisor so that they can make sure you are on the right track for your program!
