Trent is committed to “multi-access” learning for the 2020-21 academic year. 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
Winter 2021 Timetable to be Updated and Finalized by Early November
Important info for students regarding the mode of delivery for winter courses (Updated October 6, 2020)
Most winter 2021 courses will be offered online or through remote delivery with optional opportunities for students to participate in course components in-person if they are able. Although some courses will be offered in-person, students should be reassured that most of these courses will include options for remote or online learning for students unable to attend in-person. Only a very small number of courses will require mandatory in-person attendance, primarily those that cannot be offered in an alternate format. This multi-access approach has been developed to give students as much flexibility and choice as possible. The delivery methods of most courses will be updated gradually in the timetable between now and early November to reflect the multi-access learning approach recently announced for winter.
Registration for fall and fall/winter courses is closed. Registration for winter courses remains open.
- 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.
