Advising, forms & support

If you are a newly admitted undergraduate student:

You must attend one (1) online orientation session or watch the online orientation video before being allowed to register to your courses. Registration for new students is currently open. Students should register for winter term courses at the same time as fall term courses.

If you cannot attend an online orientation session and choose to watch the orientation video instead, follow this link and make sure to fill out the form with your name and student ID once you are done.

Instructions, orientation session

Please read and follow these instructions carefully:

  • Register to a session via https://economics-newstudent.eventbrite.ca
  • Familiarize yourself with the Undergraduate Program Calendar and the Class Schedule before the session.
  • Have your e-mail of acceptance (offer of admission) at hand, as we will refer to some of its content during the session. You can also review this document for more information about understanding your offer of admission.
  • Log-in instructions and documentation will be sent to you a week before the session. The orientation session will be online.
  • Kindly note that the department may cancel sessions that will have too few participants. You will be notified if this happens.  

An advisor from the Department of Economics will go through various academic regulations related to your program. The session will last approximately one hour. 

The Undergraduate Program Assistant will unblock you once you have attended the online orientation session or watched the video (there might be a 48-hour delay before you get unblocked). You will then be able to first access your course cart, then register to your courses on and after April 18. If you need help, please contact:
