Online Enrollment

Continuing education students can enroll for courses online using the shopping cart feature.

Priority Enrollment

Registered certificate program students are entitled to enroll in advance of the regular enrollment periods. Receive priority consideration for acceptance in your chosen course(s) and avoid the possible disappointment of filled classes by registering in your certificate program.

Before you begin, you must have the following:

  • a Ryerson University Student ID
    If you are a new student, you will need to obtain a Ryerson Student ID. If you previously applied to or attended Ryerson, you already have a Ryerson Student ID. Visit Request a Student ID for details.
  • an active Ryerson Online Identity and password
    If you have a student email account at Ryerson University, then you have a Ryerson Online Identity and password. If you can’t remember your password, visit and click “Need help?” to reset your password. If you don’t have a Ryerson Online Identity, you can obtain one at
  • your web browser and Internet security software configured to allow for JavaScript and cookies
  • a valid Visa, MasterCard, or American Express to pay the total course fees

Can’t meet these requirements for online enrollment? You may also choose to enroll in person or by mail.

Note: Read the course descriptions(s) carefully to ensure that the course(s) that you wish to enroll in does not require an interview or placement assessment, or any prerequisites that you have not taken. If you are enrolling in a course that requires an interview or placement assessment, you must obtain permission prior to enrolling. Online enrollments will not be accepted for courses requiring an interview or placement assessment that has not been completed.

New students must obtain a Ryerson University Student ID before they can activate their Ryerson Online Identity, register in a certificate program, or enroll in courses online.

Have you previously applied to or attended Ryerson? If the answer is yes, you already have a Ryerson Student ID. Visit Request a Student ID for details.

Note: If you choose to enroll in person or by mail, a Ryerson Student ID will be issued to you.

Notes for Undergraduate Students:

Please enroll using RAMSS for courses applicable to your degree program.

If enrolling in a continuing education course that is to be used for your undergraduate degree requirements, and in the calculation of your cumulative grade point average and academic standing, you must cross-enroll in the continuing education course by selecting the Undergraduate Career (UGRD) when enrolling online through RAMSS. In this case, you will not require a credit card to complete your transaction; you will be invoiced. However, you will be invoiced the Chang School course fee which is due at the time of enrollment. Late fees will begin to incur on the first day of the following month.

If you are registered in both a certificate program and an undergraduate degree program and the continuing education course you wish to take is applicable towards your certificate, you must select your Continuing Education Career (CNED) when enrolling online. In this case, you will require a credit card to complete your transaction.
