When getting ready to start a new semester at Georgian, registering for classes is an exciting period of time.

Registration is done through Banner. Find out how to log in to Banner, pay your tuition deposit, reserve your seat, register for courses, next steps and more.

Step 1: Log in to Banner

Course registration is done through Banner, Georgian’s student information system.

  1. Go to the Banner login page.
  2. Your login is your Georgian student email address: student#@student.georgian.on.ca.
    • E.g. If your student number is 123456789, your username would be 123456789@student.georgianc.on.ca.
  3. If you have not changed your password, it is your date of birth in the format of YYMMDD.
    • E.g. If your birthday is March 17, 1995, your password would be 950317.

Step 2: Pay your tuition deposit and reserve your seat

Understanding deposits versus reserving your seat

You are required to pay a tuition deposit once per academic year. The fall semester is the start of a new academic year. Students in subsequent terms are not required to pay a deposit, though must reserve their seat in Banner.

  • Starting a new program at Georgian? A deposit is required for your first academic semester of classes.
  • Are you a continuing student? A deposit is required for your first academic semester of classes in the new academic year.
