What will my class schedule be?

Your schedule for the BASE language courses, university credit courses, tutorials, and labs (if applicable) will be available on Quest, our student information system, in mid-August 2021.

If you are in the Faculty of Arts, Engineering, Environment, Health, or Science, your university credit courses will be selected for you. You do not need to request courses.

If you are in the Faculty of Mathematics, you will need to enroll yourself in your university credit course. Learn more about this on the Math/BASE webpage.

Your English language BASE courses will be scheduled around your credit courses.
