Understanding the registration revision period

What to do if you need to add or drop a course

September 14, 2021 — 

The registration revision period is the first two weeks of classes in the Fall and Winter Terms. During this period, changes can still be made to your course registrations without any academic or financial penalties.


Revision period dates:

  1. Last day to drop courses is: Sept 21, 2021
  2. Last day to add courses is: Sept 22, 2021

Remember: The last day to add a course is different than the last day to drop courses.


During the registration revision period, you can add and remove courses to create a timetable that suits your needs. Courses that you decide to drop or change during this period will not be added to your student records or your academic transcript. In addition, any changes that you make will reflect on your tuition. If you drop a course during this period, your fees for that course will be reversed accordingly.

Waitlists and the revision period

If you are on the waitlist for a course you no longer need, please make sure that you drop yourself from the list. This will allow a notification to be sent to the next student on the waitlist.

If you don’t get a spot in a course you waitlisted, you do not have to withdraw from the waitlist. Students who are still on waitlists will automatically be removed on September 23.

After the revision period

Remember – Think before you drop!

Once the registration revision period is over, you are still able to Voluntary Withdraw from a course up to a certain date in the term. However, please note that a Voluntary Withdraw will appear on your transcript as a VW and you will still have to pay the tuition associated with the course.

Update your residency status

If you have recently become a permanent resident or a Canadian citizen, then you can update your residency status in your Aurora account. 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).
