Registration information for undergraduate students

Students who have been accepted into an undergraduate degree program register for their courses through myEC. Detailed information can be found here.

Need help with myEC? Email with your full name, student ID number and date of birth.

Take some time to explore myEC before your program begins, as you’ll be using it a lot as a student.

Registration information for graduate students

As a graduate student, you will be registered based on the curriculum map of your selected program by the Graduate Recruitment Coordinator. No further action is required on your part.
