This guide highlights key steps and resources to help you through the course selection and registration process.
- If you haven't taken the opportunity yet, start by reviewing the course planning basics, and course selection advice for your degree program. These lists of courses without prerequisites will help you identify courses available to any first-year student.
Use this fillable form course planning worksheet to track information about possible courses you are planning for registration.
- Build a schedule of courses. A normal course load is five courses (15 credits) in each term. Be sure to schedule any labs/tutorials associated with your courses. If conflicts exist, double check that you've filled in the course(s) in the correct term and time slot. Once you have confirmed the conflict, check to see if the course(s) is offered at another time or in another term. If the conflict cannot be resolved, change one of your course selections.
Use this fillable form blank timetable to help plan your schedule. Complete your Fall schedule first, and then move on to plan a separate timetable for Winter.
Consult the course timetables for Fall and Winter to determine the days and times when your selected courses are scheduled. The timetables list all of the courses offered at the University in a specific term.
Course descriptions are found in Part III (section 12) of the academic calendar. Remember, courses listed in the academic calendar are not necessarily offered each year. This is why you should be selecting your courses from the appropriate timetable, and referring to the academic calendar for more information on the courses you are interested in taking. Descriptions for special topics courses (coded X991) offered in the Fall term can be found here, and Winter here.
Course schedules and descriptions are also available in Connect@MTA. Click on the course for further details, including meeting information, instructor, course descriptions and prerequisites. Please note, when searching for courses in Connect@MTA we advise using only three of the search fields: 'Term,' 'Subject,' and 'Course Level'.

If you are unable to register for a course because it is already full, most courses have a wait list option to which you can add your name. Students may or may not be registered off the wait list prior to the last day for change in registration, so you should still register for a full course load. If you are offered a seat in a course for which you are wait listed, you will receive an e-mail to your @mta.ca account granting a 48 hour period for your to register. Please review important information about wait lists here.
Don't be discouraged if you are wait listed for a course. Seats may become available as other students make registration changes, or as Departments monitor demand. When someone drops a course with a waitlist, their space is offered to the first student on the waitlist. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have concerns.
- Don't forget to verify your registration by checking 'My Class Schedule' in Connect@MTA. Check your Mount Allison email regularly for important notices about registration from the Registrar's Office.
