New Students

New Students provides the steps you need to take to enrol in your first Chang School course.


Returning students can enrol online using the shopping cart feature. You will need an active Ryerson Online Identity and password. If you can’t remember your password, visit, click “Need help?” and then “Students” to reset your password.

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

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

Note: If you choose to enrol in person or by mail, a Ryerson Student Number will be issued to you at the time of enrolment.
