The Academic Advising Centre has launched a new website. Please watch for changes and let us know what you think about the redesign.



Now that you have received your assigned registration date and time, it is in your best interest to register as close to this time as possible. To confirm your registration time, log into Memorial Self-Service and open the 'Registration' tab.

Once you familiarize yourself with the online registration procedures and the registration process, you will be ready to log into the registration system through Memorial Self-Service. You will need two pieces of information to log on to this system:
