1) Year 1 Students

Welcome! We’re so glad you decided to join us and that you're embarking on an exciting start to your brewing career! 

The first step is to register for each of your required classes (see 'Time to register?' below). You can then go to and log in with your Student ID and PIN to access the Moodle teaching sites associated with your courses. Your instructors will communicate with you through the program Moodle sites with more details and what to expect once classes start in September. 

It is important that you register in specific courses and sections as a full-time student.  This means you'll be with your class cohort, avoid registration conflicts and have all the necessary prerequisites to continue to the next year of the program.

If you are still waiting on transfer credit, are unsure about the status of your transfer credit, or have not yet requested transfer credit, please speak with an advisor about transfer credits for classes such as ENGL, CMNS, CPSC, CBSY, INFO and PHIL.
