How to enrol in courses
One of the most important steps as you prepare for your first day at ICM is to enrol in your first term courses!
Enrolment will take place online using your Student Portal approximately one month before Orientation. Students will be emailed important information about enrolment throughout the months leading up to Orientation.
In addition to these useful emails, below are some frequently asked questions that will assist you in selecting your first term courses.
How do I access my Student Portal?
Your Student Portal will be one of your most important tools during your studies at ICM. This is where you will enrol in courses, receive important updates, and check your grades.
To access it, please go to https://learning.icmanitoba.ca/user/login. To learn how to use your Student Portal, download the Student Portal Tutorial at icmanitoba.ca/pre-arrival-and-registration-resources.
When does enrolment begin for new students?
Enrolment for new students will begin approximately one month before Orientation. Students will be emailed the date and time that course enrolment will open for their intake.
Which courses should I select in my first term?
Download the First Term Course Selection Guide at icmanitoba.ca/pre-arrival-and-registration-resources for a complete guide to which courses are recommended for your program in your first term. To learn more about your recommended courses, download the ICM Course Descriptions from the link above.
How many courses should I enrol in?
Students in their first term of UTP Stage I must enrol in Interactive Learning Series (ILS) plus a minimum of three courses and a maximum of four courses, as recommended in the First Term Course Selection Guide.
Students in their first term of UTP Stage II must enrol in Interactive Learning Series (ILS) plus a minimum of three courses and a maximum of four courses, as recommended in the First Term Course Selection Guide.
I am in UTP Stage II but need to enrol in UTP Stage I math (MTH099 or MTH103). Which courses should I choose?
If you are in UTP Stage II but need to enrol in MTH099 or MTH103, you should choose:
- MTH099 or MTH103 (as required on your Student Portal)
- 2-3 other courses for your program that are not blocked, such as electives. Refer to the First Term Course Selection Guide
Which courses should I take if I want to change from UTP Stage II: Science to UTP Stage II: Engineering?
If a student is interested in changing from UTP Stage II: Science to UTP Stage II: Engineering at ICM, he or she must first achieve the following in UTP Stage II: Science:
- 1.Earn a minimum grade of B in the following three courses:
- MATH 1500: Introduction to Calculus
- CHEM 1100: Introductory Chemistry 1: Atomic and Molecular Structure and Energetics
- PHYS 1050 Physics 1: Mechanics
- 2.Maintain an average GPA of 3.0 out of 4.5
- 3.Have a maximum of 9 credit hours of F or D grades at ICM
If you are enroling in your first term of UTP Stage II: Science but want to change to UTP Stage II: Engineering, you are recommended to enrol in ILS plus subjects recommended for UTP Stage II: Engineering as found in the First Term Course Selection Guide.
Note that students are not permitted to enrol in MATH1210, ENG1440, ENG1450 or ENG1460 if you are not a UTP Stage II: Engineering student. You can enrol in these courses once you successfully change to UTP Stage II: Engineering.
Why am I blocked from enroling in certain courses?
You may be blocked from enroling in all courses or certain courses. This is likely because:
- You have not cleared your conditions as found on your Letter of Offer
- You have not written the Math Placement Test (if applicable)
- You do not meet the prerequisite or corequisite to enrol in that course
If a course has a prerequisite, you must first successfully complete the prerequisite course(s) before you can enrol (ex. MTH103). This may apply to students who did not take year 12 math or certain year 12 science subjects, or did not earn a minimum of 60% in those subjects, and want to enrol in UTP Stage II math or science subjects.
For full details, please see icmanitoba.ca/prerequisites.
If a course has a corequisite, you must enrol in both courses at the same time if you have not already completed the corequisite.
If you are in UTP Stage II and need to enrol in CHM100 or PHY100 as a prerequisite, please email email@example.com.
What do I do if a course I want to take is full?
If a class that you are interested in taking is full, you should choose other courses for your program and finalize your enrolment ASAP, as your place is not saved in a course until you click “Finalize Enrolment”.
Once you have enroled, you may continue to check the Student Portal to see if any space becomes available in your desired courses. As there will be students changing courses or deferring their intake due to visa delays, spots often open up. Students are strongly encouraged to check frequently until they are able to enrol in the course they are interested in.
If there is a course that does not become available, you can enrol in it in future terms.
What do I do if a course I’m required to enrol in is full?
If a course you are required to enrol in is full (ex. you cannot finalize your enrolment without selecting that subject), you should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In your email, please include your name, Student ID, program, the course you are required to enrol in, the reason you must enrol in it, and the other 2-3 courses you would like to enrol in (note that these courses must have space and must fit in your timetable).
I’ve selected my courses but I’m receiving an error message. Why?
Does the course conflict with another course in your timetable?
- If so, please check for availability in other sections of the course. If no other sections are available, you will need to select another course that does not conflict with your timetable.
Are you trying to enrol in MATH1210, ENG1440, ENG1450 or ENG1460?
- If you are not in UTP Stage II: Engineering, you cannot choose MATH1210, ENG1440, ENG1450 or ENG1460. You will not be permitted to choose those courses until you are in the UTP Stage II: Engineering program.
Do you have a UTP Stage I math condition?
- If so, you must first write the Math Placement Test and register in the required UTP Stage I math course you placed in. Note that you cannot register in most UTP Stage II math or science subjects until you meet the prerequisite for the courses(s).
Are you trying to enrol in ENGL1400, ARTS1110, PHIL1290, COMP1010, COMP1012, ENG1460, POLS1520, MKT2210, INTB2200 or HRIR 2440?
- Please note that students cannot enrol in these subjects in their first term at ICM.
Finalizing enrolment & next steps
I’ve selected my courses. How do I finalize my enrolment?
Once you’ve selected your courses, you must click “Finalize enrolment” at the bottom of the enrolment screen. You will then see your courses in your timetable.
Are the fees associated with my chosen courses included in my initial deposit?
Yes, the tuition fees for your first term courses will be covered by your initial deposit to ICM. If you are receiving an error message relating to your account balance, please contact email@example.com.
When does enrolment close?
You must enrol in courses as soon as possible. Download the Academic Calendar from your Student Portal for important dates for your term, including the last day to enrol in courses or make changes to your timetable. Note that we cannot guarantee there will be space in your desired courses if you enrol late.
How do I unenrol from a course?
To unenrol from a single course, open the Student Portal, go to your “Enrolment” tab, select the course you want to unenrol from, click “unenrol”, select the new course you wish to in (if required), and finally click “Finalize enrolment”.
How do I deregister myself from all of my courses?
