Enrolment, Fees, Policies


Information on how to enrol in Community Engagement, Leadership, and Development courses is available online.

To register in the Certificate in Community Engagement, Leadership, and Development, visit Registration in a Certificate Program.

Students may be registered in only one certificate program at any one time. To allow maximum flexibility in crediting external courses and/or courses previously taken at Ryerson, students should register in the certificate at the beginning of their first course.

Students must formally register in the certificate program prior to the completion of 50 percent of the curriculum requirements for the certificate.

For complete details on the advantages of early registration, registration deadlines, and transfer credit restrictions, all students should read the information on Registration in a Certificate Program and Graduation.

Students should be aware that, while they may obtain course credits prior to registration in courses in the certificate, those courses will not count to the student’s GPA. Only courses taken while formally registered in the certificate will be calculated in the student’s GPA for graduation purposes.


Full information about paying course fees is available online.
