Register for Courses
How to register for courses
Step 1: Before you begin
If you haven't paid your $200 admissions deposit, you will be unable to register for courses. Pay your deposit at least 24 hours before registration.
Returning or transfer students will need to check their registration status in DalOnline to see the time that they can register. This is also where you will see if there are any holds, special registration permissions or overrides on your account.
Bookmark our Important Dates page for registration dates, tuition payment deadlines, and more.
Step 2: Find your courses
In your first year, you can find the courses you need to take using our course planning worksheets. If you do not see a course planning worksheet for your faculty or program, check the academic calendar, your degree audit, or with your faculty.
If you are transferring from another institution or have already begun your studies at Dalhousie, start with your degree audit to see how your previous or current courses count toward your requirements and what you need to take next.
Graduate students should visit the Faculty of Graduate Studies registration page.
If you have questions or concerns about attending in-person classes this fall, visit our Courses and Registration COVID-19 Updates page for information on course delivery.
For new Dalhousie students
We offer a Register on Track program for new students to help set you up for success in your first year at Dalhousie. Attend one of our Register on Track events or make an appointment with an advisor on campus for academic support and advice. Here's where to go for advising.
