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.


Selecting your courses for the fall

New students can enrol in courses from July 23 (starting at 8 a.m.) to September 18, 2020.

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

Students are encouraged to enrol in courses before August 4, 2020 because space may no longer be available in desired or required course sections after this date.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, your required courses for the Fall 2020 semester will not involve any face-to-face instruction. Courses will be delivered in an alternative delivery format through CourseLink and other online platforms. For more details about these alternative delivery formats and for information about how to determine the format of a course when searching for courses on WebAdvisor, visit the Fall 2020 Courses webpage.
