REGISTER FOR COURSES

All class registration takes place online through Briercrest Live.

Access Books and Syllabi

TEXTBOOKS
Course textbooks are posted on our bookstore website throughout June and July. 
You’ll need your course codes which you can find on Briercrest Live (where you registered for classes).
Buying textbooks ahead of the school year can save some stress in the first days of the semester.
However, you will be able to purchase textbooks in person at the bookstore on campus.

SYLLABI
A syllabus (plural = syllabi) is your course guide.
You need one for each course you take.
Download them from Briercrest Live in late August when they are posted.
TIP: Students have found it helpful to write out all their due dates on a calendar to keep track of what they need to do.

Request Documents

CONFIRMATION OF ENROLMENT (COE)
You may need a COE letter to access funds from an RESP or other sources, to maintain health coverage through your province, for insurance purposes, etc.
Fill out the form and follow the submission instructions.
NOTES:  You must be registered for the number of classes you want us to confirm.
If you plan to register for a different number in the winter semester, please indicate that on the COE request form.

OTHER DOCUMENT REQUESTS 
Most forms require a signature.

STUDENT ID #
Before arrival at Briercrest, your student ID # is not required on the forms.

Plan Ahead

PROGRAM SHEETS AND ADVISERS
In preparation for your college education, review your program sheet and contact your program adviser if you have any questions.

PROGRAM COMPLETION 
Your BA degree requires 120 credit hours. That means taking 15 credit hours per semester or doing online/modular classes in the summer to graduate in four years.
TIP #1: Start with 15 credit hours or less to get a feel for what you can handle.
Courses are typically 3 credit hours each, so 15 credit hours is most often 5 courses.
TIP #2: To allow for co-curricular activities, many students take more than 4 years to complete.

VISIT THE LIBRARY 
Online and in person when you get here. Your profs will expect you to know how to access the resources available to you.
If you have questions or need help, the library staff are available to assist you.
