Step 3

Register for Courses & View your Transfer Credits (if applicable)

The course registration system may or may not be open for your Fall, Winter or Spring entry date.
Consult the registration site to check your registration date.

Check the Undergraduate Calendar to determine the courses you should be taking over your time at Brock University here.

Having trouble choosing your courses and want help? Consult with an academic advisor.

If you are a transfer student or high school student completing a specialized curriculum (International Baccalaureate) you may have received transfer credit. Check your “Statement of Advanced Standing via your portal at my.brocku.ca to verify transfer credits that you may have been granted by Brock.

If you received transfer credit, you may wish to consult with an academic advisor to learn how your transfer credit can fit into your program plan. Learn more.

Sign up for Orientation Programs

We want to ensure that every student coming to Brock gets the best transition experience for them.

If you are entering Brock in the fall, we offer three Summer Orientation Programs – Smart Start, LEAP and BaseCamp. Each program offers a unique experience, and we encourage you to register for any or all that appeal to you! You can learn more and register for these programs below.

If you are entering Brock in the winter or spring, email us at futurestudent@brocku.ca and ask about what transition programs and resources are available for you. 

Step 5

Secure YOUR HOUSING

If you are not looking at staying in residence, Brock University’s Off-Campus Living office offers year-round housing information to students, landlords, and residents in the Niagara region. The office provides resources regarding a variety of off-campus housing topics, including: finding accommodations, landlord/tenant issues, neighbourhood relations, community outreach, and much more. 

Starting at Brock in the fall term? If you submitted your residence application and fee to Brock prior to the deadline and meet our residence guarantee criteria, you will know the outcome of your residence application by late June.
