4 COURSE REGISTRATION GUIDE It is your responsibility to register in your courses and ensure that the courses you select meet the program and graduation requirements. Your first-year course requirements are outlined in this document. Use the online Course Listings or the Academic Calendar to explore possible courses of interest and to check that you meet prerequisites. Then use the registration system to find out when courses are offered and to create your schedule. REGISTER ONLINE 1. Log into MyMRU.ca 2. Select Student Resources tab 3. Select Registration under My Account 4. Register using the Look Up classes link 5. Select Term and choose the appropriate term (e.g. Fall 2015 credit) REGISTRATION ASSISTANCE Further information about registering for credit courses, waitlisting for a course, cancelling your registration, troubleshooting error messages and frequently asked questions is available online or consult the current Academic Calendar. For assistance in registering for courses contact Credit Registration: or toll-free (8:30 a.m. 4:30 p.m.). TRANSFER EQUIVALENCIES To be considered for transfer equivalency, each course must have been completed at a recognized accredited postsecondary institution with a minimum passing grade. Regardless of when a course was completed, normally it will still be considered for a transfer equivalency. However, limitations do exist for time-sensitive courses, e.g. Computer Science, Midwifery, Nursing, and Science. If the transfer equivalency assigned by Mount Royal is unspecified and you think it might transfer as a direct equivalent, you need to provide the detailed course outline for assessment. You can find more information online including timelines for transfer equivalency assessments and how to view your transfer equivalencies. If you miss the time line, as specified for any given semester, the transfer equivalency may not be established in time for course registration. This may affect whether a course prerequisite has been met. COURSE PREREQUISITE REQUIREMENTS Prerequisites are listed in the course description section of the Academic Calendar and in the online Courses Listings. It is your responsibility to ensure you have met the prerequisites for your registered courses. Failing to meet course prerequisites will result in automatic de-registration.

You can access mrugradu8 through MyMRU.ca under the Student Resources tab. Your mrugradu8 audit will show you a list of courses you have completed (included transfer credits) and current course registrations. In addition to the advice you receive from your academic advisor, mrugradu8 is a great way to stay on track! mru GradU8
5 GENERAL EDUCATION General Education (known on campus as Gen Ed) is dedicated to creating intellectual habits and abilities that take you across academic disciplines and beyond one specific job description. At Mount Royal University, each Gen Ed course introduces you to thematic areas outside your major. Gen Ed invites you to experience all that academic life has to offer by exploring courses from other faculties and fields. A Gen Ed component is included in every bachelor s degree, applied degree and diploma program at Mount Royal. The exact number of Gen Ed courses (mtroyal.ca/gened/courses) you take depends on the credential you are pursuing, but up to 30 per cent of your course load will be Gen Ed. HOW DOES GEN ED WORK? Mount Royal s Gen Ed has been structured to complement your program of study. You can tailor your courses to fit your interests and your schedule. Gen Ed courses are divided into four thematic clusters, as shown in the chart. The chart also shows the three Gen Ed tiers you will move through, depending on which program you are in.
