Course Selection, Fees and Campus Cards

Course Registration

In the spring, Enrolment Services will begin sending registration information to all students who have accepted an offer of admission. The Registration Guide for New Students will help you select courses and prepare for your first semester as a U of G student. It includes information about course registration and will help you find resources, explore financial aid options and pay your fees. Important dates and deadlines related to course selection and fee payments will also be included. Alternatively, you can refer to the Schedule of Dates in the Undergraduate Calendar.

 All students register in courses through WebAdvisor. WebAdvisor is the University’s online system where you can access Student Planning, the intuitive tool for selecting courses, tracking your academic progress, planning your degree/diploma, and more.


In order to select courses, all new students must pay a minimum, non-refundable registration deposit of $200 by the registration deposit deadline.

Note: the deadline for international fee-paying students to submit their $1,000 CAD tuition deposit is June 15.

Account statements will be available in WebAdvisor in late July. Your account summary will provide you with a detailed breakdown of tuition, compulsory fees and other charges (residence and meal plans); payments received; University scholarships and bursaries; your OSAP funding directed to your account (if applicable); and the balance owing to the University. Review your account often.
