Online & In-Person Course Registration Sessions

Course Enrolment Webinars

Join us online as we walk you through the steps for course enrolment with a live demo of resourceful websites, and the opportunity to ask questions live. 

Online Chat Room

Designed for students who understand the basics of course enrolment and program planning, these online chats are offered as additional opportunities to ask questions directly of our Academic Advisors.

Financial Aid Webinar

Hosted by our Financial Aid staff, we'll discuss money matters including budgeting, scholarships, and financial aid. We'll also highlight payment options and deadlines. 
Course Selection Workshop (in-person) Come and choose your first year courses with us! Join us on campus in our computer labs for a quick and informative presentation that will provide an overview of course enrolment procedures and protocols. Following that, you'll have the opportunity to actually choose your courses with the support of our Academic Advisors.
Course Selection Check-In (in-person) After you've added your courses (or most of them!), you may have additional or different kinds of questions. Register for a check-in session, where we will help you finalize your timetable. Spaces are limited.

Social Media Communities

Facebook and Twitter 

The UTM Class of 2023 Facebook group is one of the best places for connecting with your fellow incoming students, and @UTMFuture on Twitter will provide you with key info and deadlines throughout the summer.
