How to Register

If you do not see any courses listed in your myCambrian Student tab, then you have not successfully registered. If you require help and support to register, please email enrolmentcentre@cambriancollege.ca  or phone 1 (705) 566-8101 ext. 3003 during regular business hours. Video Walkthrough on Registration

Logging in to your Courses

When you log in to myCambrian, on your Student Tab (select Student (or the backpack symbol on your smartphone) from the left-side menu options) you will see a list of courses that you have registered to take this semester ready for you.

To enter a Moodle shell (our College learning management system) select the Moodle “M” icon in your list of courses. To read through your course outline, select the PDF icon next to your course name under “Course Outline.”

Watch Video Series to Introduce you to Moodle Basics

View Your Timetable

To view your timetable, when you are logged into myCambrian scroll down to the “Important Links” section and select “Your Student Timetable.”

If you have fully online courses in your timetable, they will be listed at the top of the timetable. Fully online courses have no on-campus meetings and no regularly scheduled virtual meetings. You do have a professor for your course and your professor will communicate with you through Moodle and email.

You will see a variety of courses in your timetable in yellow with a course code, e.g., MTH1152, a CRN number, e.g. 91364, your professor’s name, e.g., Rousseau, Marc, and a Room code. If there is a number next to the word “Room,” your class is on campus in the room specified.

If your course is listed as VIRT, this means your course is “virtual.” There are no on-campus meetings for your course. Please be aware that your courses may be a mix of on-campus and VIRT in your timetable. When your course is listed as VIRT, in your Moodle shell, or through email, your professor will explain to you when and how you will be meeting as a class. Likely through Zoom, our web conferencing tool for 1 or more hours during your scheduled class time period.
