Register for Your Courses


  1. Activate/Log into your student portal account - Go to my.brocku.ca

    Through my.brocku.ca, you will be able to access registration as well as information regarding your academic status, degree progression, financial and other important information.

    To activate your my.brocku.ca account, begin with the "Applicant, New, Returnid Student or Alumni" link on the my.brocku.ca web page. Read and follow the instructions on each screen. This process will also provide you with a Brock email account and a Brock computer account. Once you have completed activating your my.brocku.ca account, log in using your student number and your new password.

    Brock University Departments/Centres, as well as the Office of the Registrar, will use your Brock email address as a means of contacting you. It is your responsibility to check this account often.

  2. Click on the "Applicant and Student Self Serve" tab at the top of the page

    Click on "Register" from the Student Self Serve menu and Complete the Declaration form

    Once you click on Register, you must first select the program session for which you are registering from the drop-down menu. Your first time on the registration system, per session, you must complete each section of the Declaration Form (Degree Objective, Program of Study, Immigration Status, Mailing Address and Local Address) before you register.

    If your local address is the same as your mailing address, ensure the address is entered in both. Leaving the local address blank may lead to your registration access being blocked.

    Please read each component carefully before selecting an available option:

    BA and BSc students only: A "Degree Objective" will display only to students in a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) program. You must state your degree objective by clicking the "Honours" or "Pass" buttons.

    All students: You must confirm your "Program of Study", "Immigration Status", "Mailing Address" and "Local Address" by clicking the "I agree" or "I disagree" button shown under each piece of information. Disagreement will not prevent you from continuing with the registration process.

    Once you have carefully read and answered each section of the Declaration, click on the "Submit Declaration Form" button at the bottom of the screen.

  3. "I disagree"

    If you disagreed with any information on the Declaration form, continue with Steps 4 and 5. Once you complete your registration, follow the steps below.

    If you disagreed with: Program of Study or Immigration Status, contact Student Records at records@brocku.ca or x3099.

    If you disagreed in error or require assistance, please contact Student Records at records@brocku.ca or x3099.

  4. Register for Courses

    For instructions on how to add a course, change a secondary or drop a course, please use the online tutorial available through the help menu option on the right side of the menu bar or on the Self Service menu.

    To add a course that has no secondary component (seminar/lab/tutorial), simply click on "add", displayed beside the lecture.

    To add a course with a secondary component, click on the "+" function beside the course to display available secondaries. Click on the "add" by the secondary you wish to select in order to add both the secondary and the lecture. You will not be able to add the lecture without selecting a secondary.

    Your course additions will show in the List of Registered Courses for Current Registration Period and a confirmation message of "You have successfully added (course information)" will display.

    If a course offering is listed on the timetable but is showing as "Full"  or "Waiting List" in Register, you may contact the Department/Centre offering the course to see if they can add you to a Wait List, or if special consideration might be made for you to enroll in the course (see "override" in the Brock Talk glossary).

    To change a secondary, click on the "change" link shown on the List of Registered Courses for Current Registration Period. Only available secondaries will display. Changing a secondary will not drop you from the lecture. A confirmation message will be displayed to verify a change made and the list of registered courses will be updated.

    To drop a course, click on the "drop" link shown on List of Registered Courses for Current Registration Period. A confirmation message will display to verify the change made and the list of registered courses will be updated.

    * Note: Late Registration periods are listed at: brocku.ca/registrar/guides-and-timetable/spring-summer/when-to-register.

  5. Check for Conflicts

    If you are registering in more than one course, you will need to check for course conflicts. Go to Student Schedule to view your schedule and potential course timetable conflicts (use link at the end of the registration page). Any conflicts will be shown here, indicated by an orange "conflict exists" block. If you have a conflict, make note of the conflict and search for an alternative offering.

    If you are registering for courses after the exam schedule is posted you are also responsible for keeping your exam schedule free of conflicts. Students may not enrol in courses which conflict without the written approval of the Instructor.
