Preparing for the Fall
My U of C is a central portal from which you can access virtually the web services that you will need as a student. These include your university email, your Student Centre, Academic Requirements (AR) tool and your Desire2Learn (D2L). If you look UP and to the RIGHT on this page, you will see a link for 'MY U of C' - this appears on every UC page so you can have easy access to your 'MY U of C' account!
Desire2Learn is one of the web services you will use the most. It is where your instructors will post the class syllabus, the notes you need for lectures, assignments, and grades. You can also use D2L to email your professors and classmates. Usually everything you need to know about a class you are registered in will be on Desire2Learn!
The easiest place to find out what courses you are required to take for your program is the Academic Requirements (AR) tool that can be accessed from your My U of C portal.
