Many registration-related tools are accessible through uoZone. Here are a few.

Courses — Places available

When you register, you have access to courses based on criteria such as your program of studies, your discipline and your year of studies. The Courses – Places available tool allows you to view the number of spots available in a course for someone with your profile as well as the total number of places available in the course.

Confirmation of registration

The Confirmation of registration tool checks the accuracy of both your personal data, such as your name, date of birth and other personal details, and your academic data, such as the program you are registered in, the session (Fall or Winter), your classification (part time or full time), the courses you are registered for and the registration confirmation numbers. It serves as your proof of registration at the University of Ottawa.

Free space notification service

Rabaska has a free space notification service, if you're interested in a class that is currently full. You can sign up for an email alert sent to your @uOttawa address if a spot becomes available. Registering for this service does not guarantee you a space. If you receive a notice, go to Rabaska right away to register for the course. Available spots are limited and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

S Report — Evaluation of teaching and courses

Students fill out a teaching evaluation questionnaire to evaluate all courses consisting of at least nine hours with the same professor. Once compiled, results are available in the S Report, which describes certain aspects of a professor's teaching methods. The report is available through uoZone, under Applications.
