Welcome to the University of Guelph!

The Registration Guide for New Students will help you prepare for your first semester as a University of Guelph student.
It includes details about how to select courses and pay your fees, and who to contact with your questions.

Select your courses for the fall!

If you discover that all available sections of a required course are temporarily full, please continue to monitor WebAdvisor, as it may take some time to request additional spaces be made available.

New students can enrol in courses from June 26 (starting at 8 a.m.) to September 13, 2019.

If you were granted transfer credit upon admission, you may be able to enroll earlier depending on the number of credits granted. Please check the course selection windows.

Students are encouraged to enrol in courses before July 22, 2019 because space may no longer be available in desired or required course sections after this date.

You should consult the Program Information pages to determine what courses you should select for your first semester. For instructions on how to enrol in courses, take a look at the video tutorial.
