Enrollment process

  • If, for very exceptional reasons, you will not have access to the internet during the enrollment period, you may submit a modification/cancellation of enrollment form by fax (613-562-5869), by email at, or in person (Fauteux Hall, room 237).
  • The Common Law Student Centre will not confirm receipt of your form or of your enrollment. Please check uoZone to confirm your enrollment. 
  • Enrollment in some courses (those requiring a selection process and Directed Research Projects requiring a professor’s approval) will not be possible online. Where this is the case, notice is given in the course description found in the course search engine. These courses must be added to your enrollment by the Common Law Student Centre.


  • Consult the degree requirements and course sequence  for your program to verify the mandatory and optional courses for which you should enroll in the upcoming year.
  • Please note that you are only responsible for enrolling to the option courses. The enrollment to the mandatory courses will automatically be processed by the Student Centre.
  • Use our course search engine  to view the full descriptions of courses offered in the upcoming year. You can filter your search based on a variety of criteria including class schedule, instructor, term and year of study.
  • Check the examination timetable . Ensure that the courses in which you enroll do not have exams scheduled simultaneously. No accommodation is provided for exam timetable conflicts and it is each student's responsibility to ensure they do not have any exams scheduled simultaneously.  


  • Log into uoZone and, under Applications, click Student Center. Under Academics, click on Enroll.


  • Your timetable is only available via the Student Centre function. You can access it by logging into your uoZone account and, under Applications, click Student Centre.
