Frequently Asked Questions




I am unable to attend now, or I have registered for more than one session. How do I cancel my registration? 
Please let us know in advance if you are unable to attend Course Planning 101 so that another student may register in your place. Email with your name, student number and the session you would like to cancel.


I am a nursing and health, trades or design student. Should I attend Course Planning 101?
Course planning 101 is designed for Arts, Business and Science students in Open Access programs. Students wishing to get into Selective Entry programs such as nursing and health, trades or design may find that the session does not give them the specific program information that they need. Rather than attend Course Planning 101, those students are encouraged to book an appointment with an educational advisor or attend a program-specific information session.


I have previously attended a post-secondary school, or I am a mature student. Should I attend Course Planning 101?
While all new Kwantlen students are welcome to attend Course Planning 101, it has been designed particularly for recently graduated high school students who are making the transition to post-secondary. Students who have previously attended university may already be familiar with much of the information presented. If you have questions about course planning, but already know the basice, you may book an individual appointment with an educational advisor.


Why aren't there any Course Planning 101 sessions in Richmond this year?
The Richmond campus will be undergoing renovations throughout the summer months. Because of this we were unable to host Course Planning 101 in Richmond. All Richmond students are invited to attend Course Planning 101 at the Surrey campus, as all information provided will be applicable to students on any campus.


I can't make any of the Course Planning 101 dates. How can I learn about course planning and how to register for my classes?
Registration for Fall courses starts in June and it is very important that you register as soon as possible after your registration date and time to ensure that you find available seats in the courses you need. Visit the Central Educational Advising website to find out what you need to do to choose and register for your courses. Book an appointment with an educational advisor to discuss your particular situation. Be sure to book early, as advisors often book weeks in advance during our busy registration period.
