Step 2: Build Your Timetable

Once you have completed Step 1: Check Your Program Requirements, it is time to build your timetable using a combination of the Dynamic Schedule and Visual Schedule Builder tools.

The Dynamic Schedule provides course descriptions, exclusions and registration notes, and restrictions and pre-requisites that you must be aware of prior to registering. The tool also provides information on class space, location and waitlists.

The Visual Schedule Builder is a tool to plan your timetable online. Note: The Visual Schedule Builder does not outline restrictions for each section; therefore, you must use the Dynamic Schedule in conjunction with the Visual Schedule builder.

Using all the registration tools available to you before you register for your courses will assist you in building a conflict-free timetable that meets all your academic requirements, and will make the registration process much easier:
