Online Enrolment

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

Before you begin, you must have the following:

  • a Ryerson University Student Number
    If you are a new student, you will need to obtain a Ryerson Student Number. If you previously applied to or attended Ryerson, you already have a Ryerson Student Number. Visit Request a Ryerson Student Number 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
  • a supported web browser with 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 enrolment? You may also choose to enrol in person or by mail.

Note: Read the course descriptions(s) carefully to ensure that the course(s) that you wish to enrol 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 enrolments 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 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.

Notes for Undergraduate Students:

Please enrol 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 program requirements, the Undergraduate Career (UGRD) must be selected when enrolling through RAMSS. In this case, you will not require a credit card to complete your transaction; your course fees will be charged to your account. Chang School course fees are due at the time of enrolment. Late fees will begin to incur on the first day of the following month.

Note: Continuing education courses enrolled and graded under the Undergraduate Career (UGRD) will be used in academic standing calculations and grade point average (GPA) calculations for your undergraduate degree program.

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.

Step 1: Course Selection

Go to Courses and Programs.

Choose your courses using the Course Search tool or by browsing Courses by Subject or Areas of Interest.

To view course details and availability, click on a course link (e.g., CACC 100 – Introductory Financial Accounting). “Add to cart” will appear next to available scheduling options.

To add a course to your shopping cart, click the “Add to cart” button. Selecting courses in different terms will result in one shopping cart per term. Click “View cart” to see a summary of the contents in each of your shopping carts.

Step 2: Checking-Out Your Shopping Cart

Click “Checkout” on the associated shopping cart. A screen listing the courses in your shopping cart will appear.

To remove a course from the shopping cart, click “remove.” The shopping cart page will refresh and remove that course offering from your list.

To add another course to the cart before checking out, click “Find another course” to browse for more courses. No information will be lost from your cart while you search.

To enrol and pay for the contents of the shopping cart, click “Enrol.”

To continue the enrolment process, click “Proceed.”

Step 3: Logging in to RAMSS

After clicking “Proceed,” a window will open to transmit your shopping cart to Ryerson University’s registration system, RAMSS (located at ). If a Security Alert screen appears, asking for permission to proceed, click “Yes” or the window will close and your shopping cart will be emptied. Next, log in to by entering your Ryerson Online Identity and password. Click “Login.”

When you click on the RAMSS tab in, RAMSS will open in a new window. If your browser has pop-up windows blocked, you will need to choose the option “always allow pop-ups for this site” in order for RAMSS to open. Note that your session will remain active in the original window.

If you do not have a Ryerson Online Identity, you will not be able to proceed with online enrolment. Upon return to the Chang School website your shopping cart will be emptied. If you can’t remember your Ryerson Online Identity password click “Need help?” then “Students” to reset your password.

Step 4: Confirming Your Course Selection

The classes from the term-specific shopping cart are now displayed in RAMSS. You will have 10 minutes to complete your enrolment. Click the “Enrolment Shopping Cart” to continue. Then select your terms.

Select the course and click “enrol.” Proceed to step 3 of 4. If you encounter an error message during the enrolment process, review the message for instructions on how to resolve the issue.

Step 5: Payment for Your Course

Review the summary on the Enrolment Confirmation screen, which includes all fees applicable to your transaction.

Enter your credit card details and click “make a payment.” If you do not complete this step, or if the credit card payment cannot be processed, your enrolment transaction will be cancelled.

A confirmation screen appears indicating that the payment and enrolment was successful. Once you receive the confirmation, you may continue to use RAMSS or you may return to the Chang School website. If you had multiple shopping carts, repeat steps 2-5 for each one. When you are finished using RAMSS, exit by clicking the logout link.

Please bring a copy of your RAMSS enrolment to your first class and have it available for the duration of your course(s). Students not officially enrolled in a course are not permitted to attend class.
