Have courses already in your shopping cart?
If you have courses already sitting in your shopping cart, go back to your shopping cart and proceed to Checkout. If there is space available in the classes that you have selected you will be enrolled in those classes. Are you happy with your course selections and your class schedule? If so, you’ve completed Step 6! If not, you may make changes right up to the end of the enrollment period. Some of the information below may help you with your course selection.
Hint: You are not enrolled in classes until you complete this step!

Hint: Watch for green checkmarks and red "x"s! A green checkmark means your transaction was successful but a red x indicates an error and you need to try again.
Why can’t I add this course?
You may not be able to enrol in a course if:
- It is full
- You do not have the prerequisite(s)
- It causes a conflict in your timetable
- It is reserved for students in a particular program or plan
- It is an exclusion of another course you already took or are taking
If you attempt to add a course and you receive an error message or red “x”, click on "details" to view the explanation.
If you are experiencing difficulty adding courses because your transfer credits are not recognized as satisfying course prerequisites/co-requisites/exclusions please contact the Commerce Office at 613-533-2301. If permission is granted, we will issue you a permission number so you can then add the course.
Students may switch courses and make changes up to the end of the Course Selection Period in July and there is another chance to make changes during the Open Enrollment period in September. During this period students may add, drop or swap courses with no financial penalty but by that time space in courses will be very limited.
Hint: Need to switch a course or a section? Use the swap feature! By swapping courses, SOLUS will not release your spot until you are successfully registered in the new course.
“P” Level Courses
“P” level courses do not normally lead to further study in the subject and cannnot count as a prerequisite. They are valid Arts & Science course units towards your BCom degree. For example, CISC 082 - Fundamentals of Web Applications, is not a prerequisite to any first year Computing course.
However, language courses are an exception to this. Students are advised to read the course description carefully before registering in these particular “P Level” courses as many of these language courses can lead to further study.
Queen’s offers both on-campus courses and courses via correspondence or “distance” studies. However, we recommend that students take on-campus courses only during their first year until they become more familiar with the structure and academic expectations of university level courses. Distance courses are also a good option for taking over the summer.
Most language courses require students to do a placement test to see what level their language skills are at and what corresponding course is the most appropriate one to take. The placement tests take place during Orientation Week in September and the departments will assist students with course selection for language courses, as needed.
Adding Courses under your Dual Degree Program
If you are a Dual Degree student who is actively registered in Commerce and Arts and Science and you are taking courses in both Faculties simultaneously then you will need to add courses in SOLUS under two different programs.
In your SOLUS Student Centre view the tabs at the top of your screen and click on add. From the “Add” page (Enrollment Preferences) you can choose the program for which you wish to add the course by clicking on the drop down menu under “Program”. Once the program is selected, you may click on “search” to find the course(s) you wish to add. Repeat this process for your other program by selecting the correct program and adding the courses you need.
