Grande Prairie Campus
Registration is the process of enrolling in the course(s) of your choice. An advisor is available to assist you in the selection of courses relevant for your program. You may register for all terms in the academic year or for one term at a time. A registration assumes that you agree to be bound by the rules and regulations of the College and that you agree to be responsible for the fees associated with the registration.
The best way to track your grades and finances is to sign in to your myGPRC account. It is the College’s official Student Information system and it is expected that you are monitoring this account.
You are personally responsible for the continuing completeness and accuracy of your registration. This requires careful attention to course selection and compliance with prerequisite, corequisite, and program completion requirements. You need to ensure that your course selection is appropriate for your 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 you register. Courses may be cancelled when minimum enrolment requirements are not met.
You are required to pay a non-refundable tuition deposit at the time of registration for the academic year. This deposit will be applied to your account for Fall Semester fees when you confirm your registration. The tuition deposit will not be refunded if you withdraw or if you fail to confirm your registration.
Students beginning their studies in the Winter Semester must submit a non-refundable tuition deposit at the time of registration. This deposit will be applied to your accounts for Winter Semester fees when you confirm your registration. The tuition deposit will not be refunded if you withdraw or if you fail to confirm your registration.
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 Registration
As a student, each semester, you MUST confirm your registration by signing in and collecting your schedule for the semester. If you fail to confirm your registration in the Fall, your registration will be cancelled for all semesters for which you are registered. If you fail to confirm your registration in the Winter Semester, your registration in Winter and Spring Semester courses will be cancelled and you will be withdrawn from any full year (September to April) courses for which you are registered.
Confirmation of registration for trades and apprenticeship programs at the Grande Prairie and Fairview Campus and for Spring and Summer Semesters is the first day of classes. Students who fail to attend the first day of classes may have their registrations cancelled. Students studying at a Community Learning Centre will confirm their registration on the first day of class
Re-instatement of Registration Fee
A fee may be charged for reinstatement of registration for students who have had their registrations dropped due to non-confirmation.
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 fifth 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 you find it necessary to withdraw from your program or any one of the courses for which you are registered, you may do so at any time. Normally there are academic and financial considerations to a course or program withdrawal. For refund information refer to the Tuition and Fees section of the calendar.
You are encouraged to consult with your program advisor or an advisor in Student Services. All withdrawals from College must be done in writing, normally on a Withdraw from College Form. You will not be considered to have formally withdrawn unless you have provided written notice to Student Services. Notice that you are withdrawing from a course is normally provided on a Change in Registration Form. These forms are available from Student Services.
The deadline to drop courses is declared in Important Dates. It will normally be set 10 business days following 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 fees owing for the course or program will be cancelled. If you drop a course or program after the declared drop date, you are held responsible for paying the fees and will receive a grade of “W” or “WF” depending upon the date of your 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 your GPA.
The deadline for dropping and withdrawing are listed in Important Dates.
PARKING PERMITS CAN BE RETURNED FOR A PRO-RATED REFUND AT THE CASHIER’S OFFICE (ROOM C315) IF YOU ARE WITHDRAWING FROM THE COLLEGE.
