Trent is committed to “multi-access” learning for fall 2020. What does this mean for courses? Most courses will be made available through online or remote delivery. In some cases, programs, courses, or course components may require in-person instruction (in the case of labs, specialized hands-on or small cohort courses, workshops, seminars, etc.).
The Office of the Registrar provides the most up-to-date course timetable information for undergraduate courses in all terms (Fall, Fall / Winter, Winter, Summer). Detailed course descriptions and program degree requirements are in the Undergraduate Academic Calendar. Please visit Course Registration for registration instructions and deadlines and myTrent to register for courses.
In the timetable you can filter by term, location, program department and course level to see course schedules for Peterborough, Durham and Online. Please be advised that the timetable is subject to change and it is important to check back at the start of each term to confirm course location, day and time.
Choice is Key
The main thing about courses at Trent in the upcoming academic year is that almost all courses will be offered in a way that allows you to access content remotely or online. Even where in-person components exist, many courses will provide students with options to access content and learning material if they cannot be present.

A Note about Winter Term
Many winter courses currently indicate in-person as “mandatory” because of our hope that by the winter term, more students will be able to return to study primarily on campus and we want you to be able to plan accordingly. In the event that guidance regarding the pandemic does not permit a full return to campus, and students need to study remotely for their health and safety, the University will ensure that there is choice. As much as possible – and with the exception of courses that must be done on campus – programs will allow for a multi-access approach with in-person and online options. Keep checking back for more information about the winter term.
Course Registration Dates
Priority course registration is now open for returning undergraduate students and will open for new undergraduate students on July 27, 2020. Registration for graduate students begins on August 1, 2020.
- Courses with mandatory or optional in-person requirements will have details of in-person requirements noted in the “Instruction” column. Please use the Academic Timetable in conjunction with Visual Schedule Builder (VSB) to plan your schedule as in-person requirements do not appear in VSB.
- If you do not see a course that you need or want to take offered on one campus, please check for the course on the timetable for the other campus. Students may register for remote courses offered on either campus unless there is a note in the “Instruction” column to indicate otherwise. Please note that any in-person requirements for a course may only be offered at the campus offering the course.
