I have registered, what's next?

Now that you've successfully registered in your courses, follow these important steps to ensure you are ready for the semester.

  • 1. Review important dates, deadlines and information

    You are responsible for familiarizing yourself with the dates and deadlines found on the academic schedule, including fee payment and course add/drop dates.

    You should also review the Undergraduate Academic Calendar, which has information on the academic schedule, important dates, academic regulations, privacy information and fees. Specific information on faculties—as well as course descriptions and program maps—are also available. Course descriptions can be found in alphabetical order by course type. Review key dates and deadlines now.

    Are you registering for a Trent University course?

    If you intend to register for a Trent course, Trent University courses follow the same academic dates as our university.

  • 2. See if you are eligible for OSAP

    If you are an Ontario resident, you might be eligible for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), a combination of federal and provincial loans and grants. OSAP is available whether you are studying part-time or full-time.

    When you are applying for OSAP, it is important to provide the correct year level and course load:

    • Your year level for registration purposes may differ from the number of years you have attended the university. Verify your year level.
    • Typically, each three-credit hour course is 20 per cent of a full course load. If you are registered in three courses (nine credit hours), you are in a 60 per cent course load.

    Learn more about how our Student Awards and Financial Aid team can assist you in applying for OSAP.

    Continuing your studies over the spring/summer term?

    Are you planning to continue your studies over the spring/summer terms and already have an OSAP application from the previous academic year? 

    You will need to extend your current OSAP funding period by completing the OSAP Summer Extension form, located on MyCampus, under the Documents tab. This form has to be submitted after you are registered in your courses for the spring/summer semesters.

  • 3. Pay your tuition

    Now that you have registered, it's your responsibility to pay your semester fees in full by the payment and refund deadlines. To find out how much you owe, visit your account summary by term on MyCampus, under the Undergraduate tab.

    Please note: If you make any changes in registrationsuch as adding or dropping a course—be sure to check your account summary, as your balance may have changed.

    Failure to pay fees or arrange an approved deferment by stated fee payment deadlines could result in de-registration from courses, late fees and financial holds on your account.

  • 4. Find out your software and laptop requirements.
    Visit the Information Technology Services website for information on the Technology-enriched Learning Environment (TELE) program. Here, you will find which TELE model is used in your program, and whether you need to purchase your own laptop or if one will be provided to you by the university.
  • 5. Find your academic advisor

    Academic advisors are committed to helping students make choices that will lead to their academic success. Your advisor can support you throughout your educational journey, from selecting a program to planning for the future. Teams of academic advisors are available in each faculty.
