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, one in July 2020 for Fall 2020 courses, and one in November 2020 for courses offered in Winter 2021.
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 preregistration periods. 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. Each university's process is slightly different. Please follow the instructions for your home institution only. All communication about registering for any of your course choices should be done with the assistant from your home university.
Once you have pre-registered for a course/courses through the Tri-U system, you must use WebAdvisor to register for UNIV*7510 (full-time registration) or UNIV*7520 (part-time registration).
If you have pre-registered for Tri-U courses at Guelph, complete a Course Waiver Request Form for each course, sign it, and send it to the graduate coordinator (Tara Abraham).
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.
- 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.
If you preregistered for Waterloo courses, once pre-registration is closed, Susan King will email you a permission number for the courses for which you preregistered. You will then use that number to officially enroll in the Waterloo course(s) you selected through Quest during the Open Enrolment period.
If you preregistered to take a course (courses) at the other universities, you must 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.
