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 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 registration 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 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. Notice that they are withdrawing from a course is normally provided on a Change in Registration Form. These 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 business days following the first day of classes or the first day of classes for Spring and Summer courses. Students dropping within this time frame will have their registrations withdrawn 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 60 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 “W” period but before the final examination shall receive a “WF” which will affect their GPA.
The deadline for dropping and withdrawing are listed in Important Dates.
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.
