Getting Ready to Register

  • You will be registered into your core nursing courses by Student Services
  • You will be sent a list of available option courses, check which option courses will work with your current schedule and which will fulfill program requirements. For instructions on checking your program requirements, see the Course Requirements guides:

BNRT (after September 2018)

BNRT (2019 Cohort)

BNRT (2020 Fall Cohort)

BNRT (Winter 2021 Cohort)

BNRT (Fall 2021 Cohort)



Watch for Class Restrictions:

Class Restrictions are reserved seats for students in a specific program. If you try to register into a course that has only reserved seats open, you will get an error message that the class is full, even if the Class Availability says there is room. In the Course Information, you can see if a course has reserved seats as well as when the restriction will end.


Initialize your Registration

When you register, you may need to initialize your registration before you can start adding classes. When you click “Search for classes,” My UofC will prompt you to confirm your contact information. Once you have confirmed your contact information, click on “Search for Classes” again.

The Address field will need to be filled in before you can confirm. You can enter Doha in the address line and Doha as the city. You will also need to select an “area” by clicking on the magnifying glass and selecting an area from the list (eg. Al Rayyan).


As a student you are responsible for:

  • Registering yourself into option courses that work with your schedule and fulfill program requirements: see “How to Register” guide for instructions on registering into your courses. You will be provided with course numbers for elective courses before registration opens
  • Ensuring your registration is complete and accurate: see “View Class Schedule” guide for instructions on checking your class schedule
  • Ensuring all of your fees are paid with the Finance Office, outstanding fees will prevent you from registering
