Important note for students registering for Degree (3 to 4+ year) programs.

It is highly recommended that you speak with your Academic Success Advisor before selecting your courses. Please contact your advisor with the link at the top of the Online Registration page, or by sending them an email from your student email address.


If you are sure about your course selection, or you are registering for a Graduate Certificate (1 to 2 year) program, follow these steps:

  • Log in to the Algoma U student portal
  • Go to Academics -> Online Registration
  • Verify the information on file
  • Select the semester you would like to register for
  • Select your courses
  • Confirm your course selection and pay your deposit balance (if outstanding)

Sound academic advising and proper course registration helps students succeed. By receiving advice from an Academic Advisor or a Faculty Advisor, students can ensure that they are on track to have all the courses that they need to graduate. Make an appointment to meet with your Academic Advisor or Faculty Advisor and then register for courses through the Student Portal.

The Learning Centre team is committed to helping students reach their academic potential, ensuring student success, and helping students address and overcome challenges faced during their post-secondary education.
