The Registration Revision Period: an opportunity to change your mind
It happens— you start the term, but your schedule just isn’t working out or a class isn’t what you thought it would be. That’s why the Registration Revision Period exists. It’s the part of the course registration period where you can add and remove courses as you need to, so that you can create a timetable that suits your needs. During this period, the courses that you decide to drop or change are not added to your student records or to your academic transcript. In addition, if you drop a class you’ve already paid for, you’ll get a tuition refund. Most of the time, the revision period is the first two weeks of term. Because Summer Term is more condensed, the revision period is shorter too. Check out Summer Term’s important dates for more information.
There are three important things to know about the Registration Revision Period:
- You can add a new class to your timetable.
- You can register in a course that you had waitlisted if you have received a notification that a seat in the course is now free.
- You can change your residency status in your Aurora account if you have recently become a Permanent Resident or a Canadian Citizen. Updating your status during this period will enable you to receive a fee adjustment and pay domestic tuition rates. Please note that if you have updated your status after the Registration Revision Period, you will be required to pay international rates and will pay domestic rates for your following term(s).
The revision period is not the only time you can drop a course. Once the Registration Revision Period ends, you are still able to voluntary withdraw from a course up to a certain date in the term. The difference is that Voluntary Withdraws will appear on your transcript as a VW and you will still have to pay the tuition associated with the course.
