NOTE: Before you register in courses, ensure you read the course descriptions, view previous course outlines, and review the prerequisite and anti-requisite information for each course.  

A prerequisite course  must be successfully completed prior to registration in the desired course. Antirequisite courses overlap in course content, and both courses cannot be taken for credit.  If you take a course that is antirequisite to one you have already taken, you will lose credit for the first course.

Residency rules require full-time students to take a minimum of 3.0 courses at King’s. Part-time students must take at least 50% of their courses at King’s. You can break residency with a special permission from an Academic Counsellor to finish a program , but not to take courses towards a planned future program. If you hold a scholarship, check the residency conditions.
