Registration Basics Loading...
Grande Prairie Campus
Registration is the process of enrolling in the course(s) of choice. An advisor is available to assist in the selection of courses relevant for a program. Students may register for all terms in the academic year or for one term at a time. A registration assumes that the student agrees to be bound by the rules and regulations of the College and that they agree to be responsible for the tuition and fees associated with the registration.
The best way to track grades and finances is to sign into the student's myGPRC account. It is the official student information system and it is expected that students are monitoring this account.
Students are personally responsible for the continuing completeness and accuracy of their registration. This requires careful attention to course selection and compliance with prerequisite, corequisite, and program completion requirements. Students need to ensure that their course selection is appropriate for their program and includes those courses and credits required for graduation.
Availability of Courses
Registration in specific courses is subject to the availability of seats in those courses at the time of registration. Courses may be cancelled when minimum enrolment requirements are not met.
Students are required to pay a non-refundable registration deposit at the time of registration for the academic year. This deposit will be applied to their account for Fall Semester fees. The registration deposit will not be refunded.
Students beginning their studies in the Winter Semester must submit a non-refundable registration deposit at the time of registration. This deposit will be applied to their account for Winter Semester fees. The registration deposit will not be refunded.
Fees for International Students
International students who are studying at the College for the first time are required to have tuition and fees paid in full at the time of registration.
Confirmation of Attendance
All Grande Prairie campus students are expected to confirm their attendance for each semester by logging into their myGPRC account. Attendance Confirmation can be found under the My Courses tab. If students fail to confirm, they may be dropped from their classes and charged a reinstatement fee to re-add their courses.
Re-instatement of Registration Fee
A fee may be charged for re-instatement of registration for students who have had their registrations dropped.
The deadline to add courses is normally the first day of classes, however, the deadline for adding Fall and Winter Semester classes on the Grande Prairie campus is generally extended to the sixth day of scheduled classes. Normally, students require permission to register in Fall and Winter courses after the respective add/drop deadline declared in Important Dates. Permission may be granted by the Instructor or Department Chair.
Withdraw from Courses or Program
If a student finds it necessary to withdraw from their program or any one of the courses for which they are registered, they may do so at any time. Normally there are academic and financial considerations for a course or program withdrawal. For refund information refer to the Tuition and Fees section of the calendar.
Students are encouraged to consult with their program advisor or an advisor in Student Services. All withdrawals from the College must be done in writing, normally on a Withdraw from College Form. Students will not be considered to have formally withdrawn unless they have provided written notice to Student Services. Forms are available from Student Services. Failing to pay tuition and fees is not considered an official withdrawal from a program or a course. Students may be held financially responsible for courses from which they fail to formally withdraw.
The deadline to drop courses is declared in Important Dates. It will normally be set 6 instructional days including the first day of classes or the second day of classes for Spring and Summer courses. Students dropping within this time frame will have their registrations withdrawn and tuition and fees owing for the course or program will be cancelled. If they drop a course or program after the declared drop date, they are held responsible for paying the fees and will receive a grade of “W” or “WF” depending upon the date of their withdrawal.
Students withdrawing from a course or program within the first 85 percent of instructional days will normally be assigned a grade of “W” and are considered to be withdrawn with permission. Grades of “W” do not negatively affect grade point averages (GPA). Students officially withdrawing after the withdrawal date but before the final examination shall receive a grade of “WF” which will affect their GPA.
The deadline for dropping and withdrawing are listed in Important Dates.
The College reserves the right to cancel any course. Students enrolled in the course(s) will be notified and, where an alternative course is not available, students will have tuition and fees credited to their accounts.
Students who withdraw and no longer require their parking permit can return their permit to Facilities - Maintenance and Operations in G102 for a pro-rated refund. Please see Parking under Directory of Services.
Students are encouraged to register for classes as soon as possible to ensure a seat in both required and optional courses, as a student is not guaranteed a seat.
Students are able to waitlist in any course, regardless of whether or not the student is eligible for the course. A student is responsible for being aware of potential course pre-requisite and co-requisite requirements, as well as timetable conflicts. If a seat becomes available in the course, but there is a registration error, a student will not be able to register until the error is resolved. A student will only have until the seat expiry date to resolve the error.
Students are only allowed to register/waitlist in one section of a given course. If a student has registered/waitlisted in more than one section of the same course, the student will be removed from a section without notice.
Students are required to monitor their email regularly for important GPRC communications, which includes waitlist information.
Students are not allowed to attend class while on the waitlist. To ensure timely program completion, students are recommended to meet with an Academic Advisor.
