  • Enrolment is also about adding, dropping, and withdrawing from courses
  • Academic regulations related to courses are described elsewhere
  • Course enrolment for Fall courses takes place some time in July.  The date will be posted under Timetables
  • Students will usually enrol in courses prior to paying tuition fees
  • Enrolment is a separate step/process from registration

  • Students are considered registered when they either pay or defer fees. ROSI will show your status as REG (as opposed to INVited)
  • For new students Registration happens in-person at the iSchool, in the week before Fall classes begin
  • The time when all students pay for student association fees (MI, MMSt, and PhD student associations at the iSchool)
  • The time when new students fill out iSchool-related forms, and get to meet iSchool student services staff

  • Registration is a separate step/process from course enrolment.
