Questions and answers

What do I do if I'm a student from out-of-town or I missed the new student advising workshop?

All new students will be able to register for courses using the online registration.  If you will not be attending an Advising & Registration Workshop, you are able to register for courses using the advising tool found on the New Student website, and email us your timetable (with courses chosen) for review by an advisor. In the subject line of the email, put 2014-2015 Course Selections. Use your UNB email account and be sure to include your name, student number, and any career or educational goals that you may have. You will be notified only if there are concerns with your choices.

How do I find out if a course has a pre-requisite?

You can check three places. First, check the course description in the undergraduate academic calendar. Secondly, if the prerequisite is not included in the course description, you should check the academic program information section in the undergraduate academic calendar. You can also check the online registration system.

I applied to another program (nursing, science or business) but I didn't get accepted. What do I do?

You should contact the Registrar's Office to inquire as to why you were not accepted in your first program of choice. If possible, you may be able to take courses within the arts program that may increase your chances of being accepted into your program of choice. However, ultimately, you have been accepted into the arts program, so if you plan on graduating with a bachelor of arts, you must meet the requirements for the degree.

When should I buy my textbooks?

It is recommended that you attend your first class and obtain a course outline before buying your textbooks. For more information, visit the campus bookstore.

A course I want to take is full. What do I do?

It is recommended that you register yourself on the waitlist for a course using the online registration system. If you are unsure whether or not a course has a waiting list, you can contact the department that is offering the course. If there is no waitlist, keep checking the online system to see if a seat has become available.

When I try to register online for courses, I get a message that says I need to be advised. What do I do?  

If you are a full-time or part-time student, email us indicating that the registration system says that you need to be advised. Ask that your account be 'flagged' so that you can register.

Although all students are eligible to register, you are strongly encouraged to meet with an Academic Advisor early (first term) in your academic career.
