Course registration

Now that you’ve followed all of the steps to becoming a Brock student, there’s only one last step before you start your classes — course registration. Course registration opens for incoming first-year students (with no previous credits) on “TBD“.

Make sure you have your Campus ID and password handy when registering. You should also ensure that you have activated your portal at least 24 hours in advance. Registering for your courses requires careful planning! Don’t get stuck with 8 am classes every day (unless you’re a morning person) — follow the steps below to create the best course schedule for you.

Step 1

If you’re entering any of the programs below, you might require a little extra assistance in designing your class schedule.

Tourism and Environment

Courses for your program may be found under the Tourism Studies section of the online course calendar. Tourism students have the opportunity to select the Stream in Tourism Management, developed with the Goodman School of Business. Those of you accepted into the Tourism and Environment Co-op option (check your offer letter) must follow the Tourism Management Stream Co-op (Honours only).

Step 2

Design your timetable

Use the Undergraduate Calendar to prepare a list of courses you wish to take and view a breakdown of the course description. Determine when courses are offered and avoid conflicts by viewing the online timetable.


Many lectures are accompanied by a seminar, lab or tutorial, so be sure to include all components in your schedule.


Remember to plan your schedule for both terms. Some courses will span both terms, and others will be offered in either the Fall or Winter terms.

  • D1 courses: Fall/Winter
  • D2 courses: Fall only
  • D3 courses: Winter only
  • Plan your required courses into your schedule first, then context courses, and finally electives.
  • A full course load means you’ll have 3-5 courses each term.
  • Classes may be booked back-to-back (there is typically a 10 minute break between classes) but remember to consider the class locations!
    Not sure about travel time between classes? Check out a campus map.
  • Try not to leave big gaps in your schedule, but also be wary of large blocks of classes grouped together.
  • Classes fill up quickly, have a back-up plan!

Registration for 2016 opens on June 15, 2016.
