I will respond to all messages, written in a professional tone

2. Registration Times (based on semester)

3. Curriculum (with pre-reqs)

Check the curriculum as you prep for the registration.

4. Restrictions will be lifted Dec 5, 2022 at 12:00 noon for Business Core Courses and Business Electives

When registration opens, courses will be restricted to the semester & program in which they are supposed to be taken based on the program curriculum, accessible through your Academic Progress on MyHumber (also available in curriculum above), this is to ensure that those students who need to take them do get a seat. You will be able to self-enroll in courses that are not in your specific semester & program only after restrictions are lifted. Please contact me AFTER the above date if you’re experiencing problems trying to reach back or forward. I will then submit a SAF “Student Action Form” to the Office of the Registrar asking for help with enrollment. SAFs will only be processed by the Office of the Registrar after restrictions are lifted. 

You can add missing courses from earlier semesters once restrictions are removed. Check your Academic Progress to identify earlier missing courses and make note to register for them after restrictions are lifted.

5. My Preferred Sections are FULL (0 space)

You will not be able to self-enroll in classes that are full, and unfortunately, I will not be able to enroll you if there are other sections with available space. You must self-enroll in a section that has space, and keep monitoring your preferred section(s) for changes as some students may drop and a spot becomes available. Enrollment will continue to fluctuate until the last day to add courses.

6. Last Day to Add a Course / Academic Calendar

Please be reminded that students can add and drop courses until “The Last Day To Add a Course”, so enrollment in courses will keep changing until then. The following is a link to Humber’s Academic calendar that includes important dates:

https://humber.ca/admissions/office-of-the-registrar/academic-calendar.html

7. Planning your Academic Progress / Pre-requisites

Please be reminded of the following while planning your academic progress:

  • Semester 1, 3, 5, 7 core courses are offered in the Fall
  • Semester 2, 4, 6, 8 core courses are offered in the Winter
  • Semester 2 core courses are offered in the Summer for the January intake
  • Business Degree electives are offered in Fall and Winter only (not Summer)
  • Degree Breadth electives are offered in Fall, Winter, and Summer

Please be aware that as a student in a program that is designed to be taken full-time (4 years, 8 semesters), you will need to ensure that you plan and select courses carefully. You must keep in mind that some courses have pre-requisites and all courses are offered according to the curriculum outlined in your Academic Progress page in MyHumber. 

Please be reminded that taking heavier course load(s) in earlier semesters may result in lighter course load(s) in later semesters due to the pre-requisites. 

8. Second & Third year students enrolling in BUS 2504

The following section is for our program (Digital Business Management): 

BUS 2504-0LB 2393 Class (Thursday 10:45 am-1:25 pm) LA-A 237

The other section is restricted to a different program. 

  • If you are in semester 4: you should be able to self-enroll in the above
  • If you are in semester 6 AND a transfer student (Diploma pathways), you will need to take the above course in your sixth semester, and can self-enroll when restrictions are lifted. If you have problems self-enrolling, please email me to be manually added.

9. Third year students enrolling in WIL Tutorial

Students registering into semester 6 Winter: please self-enroll in your Work-Integrated-Learning module: TUTR B99 (use CRN 6953 for our program). Enrolling in this tutorial will give you access to resources to help you seek and secure an opportunity for your Summer work term (DIGI 3099).

Registration for the Summer work term opens in the Winter (check the Academic Calendar for the date), and the CRN will be shared by your Placement Advisor in the TUTR Blackboard site.

10. Fourth year students enrolling in semester 8

Contact me if:

  • You are having issues enrolling in one of your semester 8 courses needed to graduate, and you have already completed the pre-reqs
  • You are having issues enrolling in a specific “category” or “level” of breadth elective needed to graduate (see image below)

11. Fees

12. Financial Aid

For questions about Financial Aid, contact <finaid@humber.ca>

13. Breadth Electives (restrictions on Upper Level to be lifted Dec 5)

When registration opens, upper-level breadth electives will be restricted to semesters 5-8 students. Restrictions will be lifted on Dec 5, and students in semesters 1-4 will be able to self-enroll in upper-level breadth electives. Please pay attention to the campus “LA: Lakeshore”, and “NO: North” campus when enrolling in breadth electives.

14. Breadth Electives (Program Restrictions or Full)

The note below is from the Faculty of Liberal Arts regarding breadth electives:

  • You may register in any Elective that 1) has seats available and 2) does not have a restriction that applies to you. (Note: Restrictions are not errors.)
  • Some Electives fill up very quickly when Registration opens. Please note that we do not over-enroll classes, nor do we over-ride restrictions. If the Elective you want is full or if it has a restriction, you must choose a different Elective.
  • It is recommended that you enroll in an available Elective as soon as possible, even if it’s not your first choice of topic, day/time, and/or delivery method. You can then continue to monitor My Humber to see if a seat opens up in your preferred Elective before the last day to add courses.

15. Breadth Electives (Online – with a campus location)

Please note that online breadth electives that have a campus attached to them mean that the course is offered online, but assessments will take place in-person, on campus. The screenshot below is an example, where the course is “online” but attached to the “North” campus, with no assigned day and time. This can be a problem during assessments as it may conflict with your in-person classes. Please check the breadth electives you’ve enrolled in to avoid this issue.
