How to Enrol
- Find out when you can enrol so you will be ready to go when your enrolment slot opens.
- If you are a new student or have forgotten how to use the Registration and Enrolment Module, get familiar with the steps to enrolment described below.
- Consult the Academic Calendar for degree requirements, course load restrictions, special permissions, and other rules.
- Search Course Timetables to see what courses are available in a session. Make note of each desired course’s code, credit value (such as GL/PSYC 2510 6.00) and associated catalogue number. Catalogue numbers are found in the Cat # column of the Course Timetables. They are strings of numbers and letters that uniquely identify a specific offering of the course (such as H68X01).
Searching Tip: Use the “Advanced Search” function
Understanding the elements of a course description
Make note of a few alternative courses/sections in case your preferred choices are full or otherwise unavailable.
Course meeting durations are listed in minutes: 60 = 1 hour, 90 = 1.5 hours, 180 = 3 hours, etc. Days of the week are listed by first letter – the only exception is Thursday, which appears as R. Plan your schedule to be free of time conflicts using these timetable worksheets. The registration and enrolment system will not warn you of scheduling conflicts. Place all course components into your timetable: include lecture and laboratory sections, tutorials, workshops, etc. If you are enrolling in courses at both the Glendon and Keele Campuses, be sure to take travel time into consideration. You can refer to campus maps to see where your courses are located.
If you are a new student, you are required to submit an Advising Document prior to enrolling. You will receive the document at your enrolment appointment if you are coming in-person, or if you are completing the process via email, it will be sent to you by your e-advisor. Use the information on the lecture schedule to fill it in:
Log in to the Registration and Enrolment Module using your Passport York username and password. Select the session that you want to enrol into. (Please note that this system is generally down for maintenance for one to two hours each day, beginning at midnight.)
If you do not yet have your Passport York Account, sign up for it online before proceeding. If you forgot your Passport York username or password, contact the Glendon HelpDesk (e-mail: email@example.com; telephone: 416-736-2100 x66700).
You may be blocked from enrolling at this point because:
- you used the wrong Passport York username and password;

- you have an outstanding debt to York University of at least $75;
- the registration and enrolment system is temporarily unavailable;
- it is determined that you have used a computer program or script to gain unauthorized access to the registration and enrolment system; or
- you tried to add, exchange or transfer the same course or section more than 100 times within 24 hours.
