2020-2021 Academic Year
Students formally admitted to the University must complete all registration procedures in order to be considered officially registered at the University. Information can be obtained from the Registrar’s Office by all students eligible to register.
To be officially registered, students must:
- Have been formally admitted to the University;
- Have met the necessary financial obligations: if newly admitted, paid the required confirmation deposit; or, if previously registered, have cleared all outstanding financial obligations;
- Have obtained the required approvals for proposed coursework and submitted a completed Course Change form to the Registrar or submitted their registrations through myMount, the University’s online registration system. Distance students must have formally completed Distance Learning registration procedures.
- As a part of the registration process, students must also open a financial account with Financial Services for the proposed period of study.
Note: Students obtaining course approvals do so on the understanding that prerequisites will be met prior to the beginning of the course. Prerequisites are listed in the Calendar description of each course offered. Failure to meet prerequisites may result in dismissal from the course.
Once formal registration has been completed, enrolment records are established for each student by the Registrar. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the enrolment record is maintained accurately and updated to reflect any changes (including the decision to not begin courses or to stop attending courses) as outlined below.
Note: Changes in personal status, address, e-mail, telephone number and so forth must be reported directly to the Registrar’s Office either in person, in writing or online through myMount. Changes to a student’s record are made only upon the written request of the student. Appropriate forms are available from the Registrar’s Office. Alternatively, students may submit changes by letter or by FAX to 902-457-6498. All correspondence must include the student’s Mount Saint Vincent University identification number to ensure accurate recording.
