Your curriculum plan outlines the courses you need to complete during your program. This varies depending on whether you are a university transfer or post-diploma student, so it is important that you become familiar with and follow the appropriate one.
Important: Consult with your student advisor before deviating from the recommended sequence of courses.
You register for courses in your Student Centre. You can begin registering on your personal ‘Enrollment Appointment’ (listed in your Student Centre).
Register for both your Fall and Winter courses. Refer to your curriculum plan and the course timetables to ensure you are selecting the correct courses.
You may add, edit, swap or drop courses in your Student Centre up to, and including, the relevant course registration deadline for that session.
If you withdraw from a course by the drop deadline for that term, the course will not appear on your transcript and tuition fees will not be charged.
Undergraduate students are assessed tuition and general fees. Each academic term has its own fee payment deadline. Refer to the Academic Schedule for payment deadlines.
There are several options to pay tuition and general fees. Online banking is the fastest and preferred method of payment for anyone with a Canadian bank account.
If you do not pay your fees by the fee payment deadline date, a late payment penalty will be assessed.
All full-time students are automatically included in Health and Dental Insurance benefits. This fee is paid annually (normally in September) and provides 12-month coverage.If you already have health and dental insurance coverage and wish to opt out of the plan, you must opt out prior to the deadline (fall fee payment deadline). For more information about the plan and opting out, visit mystudentplan.ca.

Your acceptance of the offer of admission to the BSW program indicates that you have familiarized yourself with the time requirements for practicum completion.
You are automatically subscribed to your program specific electronic mailing list in the first week of the academic year. You will receive communication targeted to your program, or to all students. Mailing lists are for administrative purposes only, not for personal student use. Important academic deadlines, notices and events are also posted on the faculty website and the faculty's Twitter account (@UCalgary_FSW).
We promise to limit what we send to you. Pay particular attention to the subject line to help you sort through the emails you receive from Student Services.
- URGENT: we really need you to read this email
- IMPORTANT: important but not critical messages
- FYI: we think you might be interested
We count on you reading all emails sent with the URGENT tag.
Note: Upon convocation, your email will be automatically removed from the mailing lists. Do not contact the administrator to have your email removed.
As a new student entering the BSW program, you are required to participate in orientation sessions. More information about orientation will be available in early August.
Information about scholarships, awards, and other funding opportunities can be found on the Faculty of Social Work and Office of the Registrar websites.
There are two ways to log on to D2L.
- Log on to myUofC. Once you are logged in, if the D2L link is not listed under Quick Links, click on the Academics tab and the link will be listed in the Direct Access column in the far right side of your window.
- The second way is directly through the University of Calgary's D2L site using your IT username and password.
Not all instructors choose to use D2L to support course instruction. If using D2L, it is up to the instructor to make the site available (visible) to students. Generally, most D2L course sites are made available to students on the first day of classes.
If you don't see any courses showing in D2L, follow these steps before contacting IT Support:
- Check your Student Centre in myUofC to make sure that you are indeed enrolled in the class.
- Contact the instructor for more information regarding when the site will be made available to students.
