Do I need to follow-up with any information?

Students with permanent codes and/or OUAC numbers, final marks are forwarded to us automatically. No need to send us another copy. However, all other students graduating from Canadian, US, or international schools must ensure their final marks and confirmation of graduation are sent to Bishop's University, Admissions Office. Transfer students must make sure their current college/university transcripts are sent to the Admissions Office.

How do I select my courses?

Emphasizing accessible friendly faculty at Bishop's, registration for new students is done in person with a member of faculty specializing in their major area of concentration.

You are encouraged to prepare yourself for registration by considering which courses you wish to take, and by drafting at least one tentative schedule and a list of alternate courses before your appointment.

Should you have specific questions, the Departmental Chairpersons or the Divisional Deans are the best sources for information on your program's academic requirements. They can be contacted prior to the registration period, as well as any time during the semester.

To register you will need:
* Your student ID
* A pen
* A draft of your tentative schedule
* Your signed Student Charter of Rights & Responsibilities (enclosed in your registration package)
* Permanent code form (enclosed in your registration package)

Do you have a place to stay?

If you do not respond before the deadline, your place may be given to the next person on the waiting list.

If you are planning to live off-campus, the Borough of Lennoxville has many clean, safe and affordable neighborhoods. For listings of available off-campus housing visit our off-campus housing website.
