What is the Course Selection Period?

It is the creation of a wish list of courses you want to take during the next academic term. Your wish list of courses will be used to create a conflict-free class schedule for you, if you are successfully enrolled in the courses.

Participating in the Course Selection Period gives you an early attempt at getting into your desired courses, though there are no guarantees.

Returning students: Any holds or fees owing on your accounts will prevent you from participating; you'll first need to clear your hold(s) and/or pay your fees.

    Important information

    • Specific dates are listed on Important Dates:
      • Starts at 8:15 a.m. (Eastern Time) on the first day listed
      • Ends at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the last day listed
    • You can select courses anytime during the Course Selection Period; successful enrolment into desired courses is independent of when you make your choices during this period (i.e., not on a first-come, first-served basis).
      • You can also modify your requests or change your priorities during the entire period (i.e., as often as you like!).
    • How to generate your wish list of courses: When it's your time to select your courses, this is what you need to do (see Quest instructions for selecting courses. Note: Course selection cannot be completed on Quest mobile.):
      1. You pick your desired course.
      2. You pick your preferred campus location for that course.
      3. You set the priority order of consideration for that course.
      4. Repeat steps 1-3 for as many courses that will complete your course load.
    • Having issues? You may need to complete a Course Selection Override Form.

    Once completed, the course selection exercise generates your class schedule before the Drop/Add Period begins. The automated process that is run will slot students into classes and considers things such as prioritization (yours and other students), the number of units you have completed (study level), the number of available and reserved spaces, course time conflicts, and random assignment (note: it does not consider the date/time a student selected the course during the Course Selection Period).
