    How to Register

    • Tutorials

    • 1. When am I eligible to register?

      Your Registration Time Ticket will tell you what date and time you are able to register; as well, your academic status may impact your ability to register. Click below for more information.

    • Check your Registration Time Ticket

      If you have applied and been accepted into your program or you are continuing in your program, you will have a Registration Time Ticket for registration on your myCap account.

      To view your time ticket, login to the Student Information Web Service through myCap, choose Student Services > Registration > Check Your Registration Status. Choose the appropriate term and you will be given your Registration Time Ticket--the date and time that you are eligible to register for that term.

      If you have any holds that prevent registration (e.g. fees owing, library holds, etc.), or if your academic standing or student status prevents registration, you will not be able to register. You will be able to see if you have any holds that prevent registration or if your academic standing prevents registration when you log into the Student Information Web Service through myCap. If you have any questions regarding your Time Ticket, your academic standing or your student status, please contact the Registrar's Office. If you have questions regarding your holds, please contact the Cashier's Office for outstanding payment holds or the Capilano University Library for library holds.

      Academic Standing

      Students who achieve a cumulative GPA (CGPA) of less than 1.67 are place on academic probation. The academic probation notation is listed on a students permanent record and is noted on the students academic transcript. If your academic standing is "Required to Withdraw" as a result of your final grades and you have already registered for a subsequent term, you will be deregistered from that term and your payment(s) will be reimbursed.

      To check your academic standing, log into the Student Information Web Service through myCap, choose Student Services > Student Records > Unofficial Academic Transcript. Select "Submit" and scroll to the last term you completed at Capilano University. Your academic standing will be listed under the term.

      For more information regarding academic standing, please see the current Capilano University Calendar > Academic Information > Academic Policies & Procedures > Grading System > Academic Standing.

    • 2. Can I add, drop or withdraw from my courses?

      Course drops will not be printed on the Official Transcript of Academic Record but will be maintained in the permanent student record for accounting and statistical purposes.

      Refunds may be issued during this period as per the refund policy, which can be viewed on Fee Refunds.

      During the Add/Drop Period

For courses with start and end dates that differ from the standard full-term start and end dates, please refer to the non-standard Add/Drop and Withdrawal Dates document located on Dates and Schedules.

      Add/Change Sections:

      • For courses that do not allow/permit waitlists: Students will be able to add courses or change sections online during the add/drop period provided they have a valid time ticket and the courses are available for web registration.
      • For courses that allow/permit waitlists: Registration in courses with waitlists will close once the term starts even if seats are available. You must add yourself to the waitlist in order to receive a registration offer, which will be sent by the instructor. These registration offers are sent out daily at midnight and must be accepted online through the Student Information Web Service at myCap within twenty-four (24) hours.

      Drop:

      If you registered for your courses online through the Student Information Web Service at myCap, you may continue to use this service to drop your courses. If you registered for Career, Limited Enrolment, or Foundation courses via paper Registration Form, you must submit a Registration Form to the Registrar's Office in order to drop a course. The instructor’s signature is required on all Registration Forms.

      If you are receiving financial aid in the form of a loan, scholarship, award, or bursary, you should contact Financial Aid & Awards to determine if your current or future financial aid will be impacted.

      Course drops will not be printed on the Official Transcript of Academic Record during this period; however, a record for drops will be maintained on the permanent student record for accounting and statistical purposes.

      Refunds may be issued as per the refund policy, which can be viewed on Fee Refunds.

      During the Withdrawal Period

      During the withdrawal period, you may withdraw from your course(s). If you wish to withdraw from all courses in which you are enrolled, you are strongly encouraged to contact a Counsellor or Advisor before withdrawing.

Or, if you registered for Career, Vocational, or Foundation courses via a paper Registration Form, you must submit a Registration Form to the Registrar's Office in order to withdraw from a course. The instructor's signature is required on all Registration Forms.

      If you are receiving financial aid in the form of a loan, scholarship, award, or bursary, you should contact Financial Aid & Awards to determine if your current or future financial aid will be impacted.

      A withdrawal ("W") will be noted on your Official Transcript of Academic Record for the withdrawn course(s).

      Refunds are not issued for withdrawals as per the refund policy, which can be viewed on Fee Refunds.

      After the Withdrawal Period Deadline

      After the withdrawal period has closed, you will not be able to withdraw from your course(s) unless you have documented extenuating circumstances (such as medical illness or a family death) that have impeded or will impede your ability to complete your course(s). Extenuating Withdrawals must be applied for through the Registrar's Office. For more information about extenuating withdrawals, please see the Application for an Extenuating Withdrawal on Transcripts and Forms.
    • 3. How do I waitlist for a course?

      Sometimes the courses that you wishing to register in will be full; at that point, you can waitlist for the course if waitlisting is available. See the Registration Tutorial linked at the top of this page for waitlisting instructions.

    • Where and How to Waitlist

      You waitlist for a course through the Student Information Web Service at myCap just as you would register.

      For instructions on how to waitlist, please see the Registration Tutorial linked at the top of this page.

      Confirming a Spot on the Waitlist

      You must confirm your position on the waitlist every seventy-two (72) hours (3 days).

      If you are in position number 1-5 on a waitlist, it is highly recommended that you re-confirm your spot every twenty-four (24) hours (1 day) as a registration offer (a seat in the class) may become available and you have 24 hours to accept the offer.

      If you fail to confirm for a spot within the allotted time, you will be dropped from the waitlist and will have to add yourself back to the bottom of the waitlist.

      Accepting Registration Offers

      You must accept a registration offer within twenty-four (24) hours. For this reason, you should check your waitlist daily, especially when you are in position number 1-5 on the waitlist.

      Fees for Waitlisting

      There are no fees charged when you waitlist in a course. You will be charged fees only when you accept a registration offer.
    • 4. What courses should I take?

      Please click through the list below to obtain helpful information on course planning.

    • Course Planning Tools / Resources

      If you would like help in choosing your courses before you register, you can:

      • Contact the Advising Centre and make an appointment to discuss your course selection with an Admissions & Academic Advising Officer.
      • Register for a Course Planning Workshop through the Advising Centre.

      Choose courses using the myCap Schedule and check that you have the prerequisites.  Select a few additional courses as alternatives in the event some of your first choices are full.

      The Course Description section of the Capilano Unviersity Calendar may be used to identify the courses in which you wish to register. Not all courses listed in the online Calendar are offered each term. You may check course availability using myCap Schedule.

      Labs / Conversations / Tutorials

      Many courses have a lab, conversation, or tutorial component. You must register in a lab, conversation, or tutorial, in addition to the lecture, for courses in which this is a required component. Please note that linked courses (courses with a lab, conversation or tutorial) do not allow waitlisting. For more information, please consult the notes for each section in myCap Schedule.

      Course Clashes / Time Conflicts

      The system will not let you enrol in two or more courses with conflicting class times (i.e. two or more courses scheduled at the same time or with overlapping times).

      Course Availability

      Admission to the University does not guarantee registration in any or all courses in which you wish to enrol.

      Audit Status / Auditing a Course

      You will be permitted to register as an audit student only if space is available and if you have the instructor's approval during the Add/Drop Period. In order to change from credit to audit or audit to credit during the Add/Drop Period, you must submit a Registration Form to the Registrar's Office. The instructor's signature and an appropriate date are required on all Registration Forms. You may not change from credit to audit or audit to credit online via the Student Information Web Service. Audit registrants pay regular tuition and all other assessed student fees.

      Audit students do not sit examinations, submit work, papers, lab reports, etc; however, attendance at lectures, labs and seminars is required. Audit status is not calculated in your GPA, does not have credit, and may not be used toward completion of a credential.

    • 5. Do I have the required prerequisites for my courses?

      Click through the list below for some general information regarding course prerequisites. For more specific information, please visit the University Calendar.

    • Course Prerequisites

      Course prerequisites are automatically checked against your academic record. The system will not let you register for a course for which you do not have the prerequisite(s) or if the prerequisite does not appear on your academic record. You must ensure that you have submitted all official high school and post-secondary transcripts at least three (3) weeks prior to registration to allow enough time for the courses to be recorded on your academic record.

      Capilano University courses that are in progress at the time of registration and mid-term high school grades will satisfy prerequisites. However, the Registrar's Office will recheck all students' prerequisites once final grades have been entered at the end of each term or session. If you do not meet a required prerequisite for a course based on your final grades, you will be deregistered from that course and you will not be charged for that course.

      English Placement Test Requirements

      The English Diagnostic Test (EDT) or Language Proficiency Index (LPI) test is required for registration in some courses, including first year English (ENGL) courses. Please ensure that you have written the EDT or submitted your LPI exam results to the Registrar's Office at least 48 hours prior to registration so that the results can be recorded in advance on your academic record.

      Math Placement Test Requirements

      The Math Placement Test (MPT) is required for registration in some courses. Please ensure that you have written the MPT at least 24 hours prior to registration so that the results can be recorded in advance on your academic record.
