Take the Next Steps Toward Gryphonhood

Posted: Wednesday, June 14, 2017 - 15:00

It’s time to take the next steps toward Gryphonhood, #futuregryphons! 

From registering for your Fall 2017 courses and paying your tuition deposit, to logging in to your new U of G email account, checking out STARTonline.ca and picking up that super-important U of G ID card, we’ve got your to-do list covered!

1) Register for your Fall 2017 courses (if you haven’t already done so)

Make sure you register for your Fall 2017 courses by July 5; the next opportunity to register for courses won’t be until August 21.

For step-by-step instructions on how to pick your courses, refer to your Registration Handbook for New Students that you received in the mail. If you haven’t received this book yet, you can access the online version of the handbook

If you have questions, please call 519-824-4120 Ext. 58731 or email Enrolment Services at es@uoguelph.ca.

2) Pick up your ID card

Remember, your ID card doubles as your meal card and as the access key to your residence, so it’s very important!

To get an ID card you must submit a photo online before August 11. You can then pick up your ID card from Enrolment Services, 3rd floor University Centre.

We strongly suggest picking up your ID card over the summer. You can also pick it up over Move-In Weekend (Labour Day Weekend) or whenever you arrive on campus, but you should expect long lines during this time. 

MOST IMPORTANTLY: bring your passport or birth certificate, plus a valid piece of government-issued identification to get your ID card. 
If you are an international student or permanent resident, please refer to the specific ID card pick up requirements

Visit the ID card website for all of the details you will need.

3) Pay your registration deposit

This one is also super-important! 

You must pay a $200 deposit by August 11 to hold your registration in your courses.

We recommend that you make your payment through internet banking. Visit the Student Financial Services website for more information on how to pay your fees.

4) Log in to your U of G email account

The days of using your Gmail account for university communication have come to a close – it’s time to access U of G’s Gryphmail, and be sure to check it frequently for important messages from U of G!

5) Check out STARTonline.ca

We’ve covered a lot of the nitty gritty of your journey to becoming a full-fledged Gryphon, but be sure to check out STARTonline.ca too! You’ll find your START to-do list, and get access to weekly blogs that will help you prepare for Move-In Weekend, Orientation Week, and making the most of the awesome resources available to our students at U of G!
