    1. Go to
    2. In the grey box on the right side of the page, click on Find Username and Password.

    5. To access your e-mail from the U of R home page, click on the Webmail link located in the black bar at the top of the screen.

  3. Decide if you want your U of R email to go to your most used e-mail account. If you do, set up an e-mail forward on your U of R account so you don't miss out on important notices and deadlines throughout the year. You can find the link to forward your e-mail on the same page as your password.
  4. Think about the different subject areas that you may be interested in studying both in Science and in other faculties and write them down. While you will have a set of courses that you are required to take, most programs also include electives from the Faculties of Arts, Fine Arts or other Faculties of interest. To help with your planning, consult the Class Schedule and Registration website and read the First Year Course Recommendations. (213 KB)pdf
  5. Make a list of other commitments you may have (i.e., work schedule, extracurricular activities), so that they are handy when you are building your schedule.
  6. Write down any questions you may have in a notebook and bring it with you. That way, you don't forget them and have something to take notes in as well!
