MA courses

Course enrolment

Step 1: Preregistration

Students in the Tri-U History program can take any History course at our participating institutions. To ensure fair access, students at all institutions must preregister to reserve a space in the course.

You will receive an email outlining the preregistration process and dates before the process runs. Preregistration for Fall courses takes place in July, and preregistration for Winter courses takes place in November. Course spaces are allotted on a first come, first serve basis, so be sure to logon to the survey as soon as possible when it becomes live.

Step 2: Registration

After you preregister and receive confirmation that your space has been reserved, you must enroll in your courses through your home institution. Please allow 24 hours between preregistering and enrolling to ensure the system has updated.
