Intent to Register (ITR)

Students planning on returning next September must complete the Intent to Register process to be permitted access to course selection during summer registration through the Student Center. Most students will be able to complete the Intent to Register process using an online service available on the Student Services website. Students who are unable to complete the Intent to Register process online can receive a paper form from their Kinesiology Academic Advising Office.


Students must complete Intent to Register (ITR) between March 1 and April 2.

Where and How?

Most students are able to complete the ITR process online .


NOTE: Students may access the system as many times as they would like to make changes until ITR closes. Only the most recent submission will be used as ITR moves forward.

Manual ITR

Some students may required to complete and submit a manual ITR form, which can be received by emailing Students required to complete the manual ITR process are:

  • New concurrent degree students
  • Second degree students
  • First-year students continuing in a common first-year program

Selecting a Module

When selecting a module through the ITR process, please consider the following:

For Kinesiology programs, you can also research using the program planning guides online.

Additional Modules

  • Students interested in focusing their elective courses throughout their degree on a second subject area can select to add an additional Major or Minor to their 1st choice when completing the ITR process.
  • It is not mandatory to select an additional major or minor.
  • Additional modules do no impact admissions into professional programs.
  • Adding an additional Major module to an Honors Specialization will require careful planning to allow students to complete the modules in four years.
  • An additional module can be removed from a student's program if they decide in future years that they no longer wish to complete it.

Additional Modules (open only to Faculty of Health Sciences students)

  • Major/Minor in Rehabilitation Sciences
    • There are 30 spaces available each year
  • Minor in Foods & Nutrition
    • There are 5 spaces each year

Second Choice Modules

It is mandatory that all Year 1 students make a second choice when completing the ITR process. When making a second choice, students should consider:

  • A second choice MUST be outside of Kinesiology (ie. sociology, psychology, biology, english).
  • Students should ask themselves:
    • "If I couldn’t study my first choice what would I like to study?"
  • Students should make sure to have the first year required courses (for their second choice) by checking the Academic Calendar.
  • If they don’t have the required first year courses for their second choice, students may want to consider another program or choose “Undeclared”.

What is Undeclared?

A student should consider using the "undeclared" option when:

  • They have selected first year elective courses that do not lead to any other program options
  • They do not like the program options their electives lead to

NOTE: It is possible to be undeclared for a year while working towards getting back into Kinesiology. However, it is important that students select courses that will also build towards a back-up program in case they are not eligible to return to Kinesiology.

Progressing Kinesiology Students

  • Students not making any changes to their program do not need to complete an Intent to Register
  • Students who wish to make any of the following changes will need to submit an Intent to Register:
    • Add or drop an additional module
    • Switch from the Major in Kinesiology to the Honors Specialization
    • Switch from one Kinesiology Honors Module to another
  • It is not necessary for senior Kinesiology students to select a 'Second Choice Option'
