The Office of the Registrar is committed to supporting students, faculty, and staff.

It is almost time for registration for Fall/Winter 2020/21. To support you through this process we have developed and curated resources that clarify timelines, define course delivery terminology, and explain the new and unique features of the 2020/21 timetable.

What is different about course registration for 2020?

Almost all courses will be offered online for Fall 2020. In-person classes will be held for some Graduate level courses and some labs.

Courses that are typically offered online are demarcated as “online” in the timetable.

Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to learn more about all the terms used in the timetable.

Online courses will either be synchronous or asynchronous and this will be indicated under the room location as either SYNC or ASYNC.

SYNCHRONOUS (SYNC)

These courses will have a set time when students are expected to “attend”.

ASYNCHRONOUS (ASYNC)

These courses do not require that you attend at a specific time, but will still have deadlines that you will need to adhere to.

Am I registering for both fall 2020 and 2021 at the same time?

As in previous years, course registration includes Winter 2021.

Winter courses are currently scheduled for in-person delivery and accordingly you should plan your schedule to avoid conflicts.

Conflicts in your course schedule are only allowed with permission from both instructors (even if they are ASYNC).

Please note

A decision about in-person classes for Winter 2021 has not been finalized. Brock continues to work closely with public health officials and further details about the winter term will be communicated at a future date.

When do classes start?

Undergraduate courses will begin on September 9th. More important dates
