You are unable to register for all of the courses proposed to you (you get a message that no seats are available in any section of a particular course).
You wish to discuss your course selections with an academic adviser.
You would like to reduce your course load by more than 3 courses and are therefore unable to complete your reduced course load request online (available under MyDawson portal/My College Services/Reduce Course Load requests) .

You cannot register because you haven’t paid your fees. Click here to find out how to proceed: https://www.dawsoncollege.qc.ca/finance/student-fees/
You wish to be added to a course/section that is full (i.e. because you would prefer a different teacher or day/time than the course allocated to you). Switch courses during the official course change period, after classes begin. (Help Chat operators cannot add students to course sections that are full and no wait lists are kept for daytime courses.)
You feel you have been placed at the wrong French level. Speak to your French teacher about your concerns during the first class of the semester.
You have questions about, or have not taken, an English placement test. Visit https://www.dawsoncollege.qc.ca/registrar/english-french-placement-tests/ which includes test details and appropriate contact info.
You are in a technical (career) program and, due to exceptional circumstances, need to inquire about switching groups/course sections. See your program web page in order to contact your program coordinator.
You want to know if there are seats available in a particular course/ section. Use the Check for Available Seats box on the Course Request Form within the registration system (see How to Register video).
You have already finalized your schedule and are hoping to make changes. Switch courses during the official course change period, after classes begin. (Once you have finalized your schedule, further changes cannot be made during the regular online registration period.)
You wish to take an evening course. Daytime students cannot take evening courses for reasons of scheduling preference.
