Continuing Studies Registration

How to register for Continuing Studies Courses

Register for courses online as part of a certificate program or choose an individual course or workshop.

Enter our registration portal, MyEC, by clicking the name of the course you are interested in, then click 'Register For This Course' which appears in the yellow box under the course description. From there, further registration directions will be prompted.

You may contact Continuing Studies by email for help with registration and programming inquiries, and by phone or in person up until the course start date.

We strongly recommend early registration, as space is limited and courses fill to capacity.

Certificate Courses

Students do not have to be completing a part-time certificate to register in courses. Courses are open to all students 18 or older.

OneCard ID

The Emily Carr OneCard is your permanent Emily Carr University ID card that will provide access to campus facilities as determined by your course registration, including classrooms, shops, studios, and any other areas and resources that are assigned for your specific requirements. All students must have their OneCard ID to access their classrooms and ECU services.

To obtain your OneCard ID card students must upload their own photo. Follow the instructions contained in your registration confirmation email or, if your registration confirmation email is unavailable, follow the directions below. Please ensure you upload your photo at least 5 calendar days before the start date of your first class and allow three business days for the production of your card. You will be required to pick up your OneCard in person from the Continuing Studies information desk located in the Student Commons, room B2113, during regular business hours.

WE WILL NOTIFY YOU by email when your card is ready for pick-up from our office. If you are unable to pick-up your card during regular office hours, please contact us directly and we can arrange for your card to be mailed directly to you.

Please note that there is a $10 replacement fee for lost cards.
