Preregistration for MA Courses is required
As a student in the Tri-U History program you have access to all courses offered each year at all institutions.
To reserve your place in your preferred courses, you must preregister. You cannot directly select courses from your home institution.
There are two periods of preregistration.
The primary preregistration period occurs in June or early July for the following academic year. You have access to all offerings at all institutions on a first-come, first-served basis. You will preregister for courses at Guelph and Laurier for both Fall and Winter, and for courses at Waterloo for Fall.
The second smaller preregistration period occurs in November for courses offered in Winter at Waterloo and are also filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
After you are admitted to one of Guelph, Laurier, or Waterloo (which becomes your home institution), you will receive an email outlining the process and dates for the June/July preregistration period. Follow the email instructions and choose your courses using the online survey during the defined time period. Course spaces are allotted on a first come, first served basis so preregister early.
Once you have preregistered and received your confirmation email, you must also register for all your choices through your home institution. Pre-registering in a course does not mean you are automatically enrolled in the course. Each university's process is slightly different so please follow the instructions for your home institution.
Guelph Registration Instructions
- Once you have pre-registered for a course/courses through the Tri-U system, you must then register for your chosen course(s) through the University of Guelph’s course selection system WebAdvisor for all selected U of G courses.
Courses that you preregistered to take at the other universities, require that you fill out and submit an Ontario Visiting Graduate Student (OVGS) form. The Guelph Ontario Visiting Graduate Student Plan page outlines the process for Guelph students. The relevant OVGS form is found by clicking the Forms and Documents link on the right of the page, and choosing the form from the Graduate Records Forms link. Submit the form to the graduate coordinator for a signature, which is then sent to the U of G’s Office of Graduate and Postgraduate Studies office in order to be officially enrolled in the course.
Laurier Registration Instructions
- Once you have preregistered for your courses, your assistant, Heather Vogel will add an override on the online registration system (LORIS) so that you can then go ahead and register for the Laurier course(s) you chose. Do this during your registration period.
- Courses that you preregistered to take at the other universities, require that you fill out and submit an Ontario Visiting Graduate Student (OVGS) form. Follow the instructions at the bottom of the Course Registration for Graduate Students page under the section, Selecting A Course at Another Ontario University, where the OVGS form is linked. Submit the completed form to Heather Vogel.
Waterloo Registration Instructions
Once you have preregistered for your courses you must email your graduate coordinator Susan King with a list of your Waterloo courses and ask for a permission number so you can register. You will then use that number to officially enrol in the Waterloo course(s) through Quest during the Open Enrolment period.
Courses that you preregistered to take at the other universities, require that you fill out and submit an Ontario Visiting Graduate Student (OVGS) form. The Waterloo Ontario Visiting Graduate Student (OVGS) program page outlines the process. The relevant OVGS form is linked from this page. Submit the completed form to Susan King.
