When will I be able to register?

New students

New students who have received an offer of final or conditional admission may begin course registration on or after the first day of registration for new students, once the tuition deposit has been paid and the offer of admission has been accepted.

Processing of tuition deposits (including those paid online) may take up to two business days. Once the tuition deposit has been paid you may activate MyMRU, and then access Register & Pay> Register where you will register for classes.

We recommend that you contact your academic advisor prior to selecting your courses. Please note mandatory advising is required prior to registration for certain programs.  Please refer to your admission package for further information.  

Students in:

  • Academic Upgrading
  • Bachelor of Arts
  • Open Studies
  • University Entrance Option

should contact Academic Advising Services to book an appointment with one of our academic advisors.

Students in all other programs should consult their Offer of Admission or "Get Advised" package for the contact information for their academic advisor.  A listing of academic advisors can also be found on the Who is my advisor page.

Continuing students

Continuing students can register for courses online through MyMRU or in person at the Office of the Registrar. Continuing students are assigned a registration access date based on the number of credits earned towards their credentialed program (including transfer credits).  Students with the most credits earned towards a credentialed program are given registration priority.  Students enroled in non-credentialed programs are assigned the last day of registration for continuing students.  Non-credentialed programs include: Academic Upgrading, Aboriginal Education Program, Bachelor of Arts - Undeclared, Bachelor of Education - minor undeclared, Bachelor of Science Computer Science (University Transfer), Open Studies and University Entrance Option.  Check your Registration Access Date in MyMRU after you've paid the Registration Deposit. 

If you are a current student who has applied and been accepted to a new program, you are required to pay the $425 tuition deposit before you will be eligible to register for courses in your new program.
