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 should become familiar with our 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.

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

  • 2. Activate your student email account

    Through a partnership with Google, our undergraduates, graduates, alumni, faculty and staff have access to accounts ( powered by G Suite for Education. This is a rich suite of communication and collaboration tools designed to enhance our ability to work together. G Suite for Education is available to users via any internet-connected computer or mobile device.

    Visit our Information Technology Services website to see what your G Suite for Education services include. Instructions on how to activate your student email account for the first time can be found at the bottom of the page.

  • 3. 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—be sure to 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 which is located in MyOntarioTech, in the Student awards and financial aid box, during the week of Friday, March 25. This form has to be submitted after you are registered in your courses for the spring/summer semesters.
