Other Ways to Register in the School of Continuing Studies

In-Person Registration

In-Person Registration

If you are a new Independent (Special) Student, or if you are unable to register using Minerva for any reason, you must register in person. This service is by appointment only. Please call Client Services for an appointment at: 514-398-6200.
Note: A registration appointment is not the same as an appointment to see an adviser. If you wish to meet with one of our advisers, please call for a separate appointment (see Contact Information for Continuing Studies Advising).

Please consult our website for specific dates for the Fall, Winter and Spring/Summer term in-person registration.

If you are required to take a Language Classification test, schedule an appointment at least two days after your test.
