All students of Shortwood Teachers’ College are required to register each academic year on a semester basis.

This is the process by which a student becomes a member of the college. It involves specific rules and procedures you must observe to attend classes or receive any other privileges as a member of the student body.

Registration involves THREE main components:

STEP 1.  Medical Clearance

All students are required to complete a medical at the beginning of each academic year except for students redeeming a single course work.

(Please visit the Medical Doctor of your choice or the nearest Government Health Centre.)

The medical certificate must be submitted to the Registrar ( to obtain medical clearance.

  • Students on Academic probation must seek approval from the Examinations Coordinator before proceeding to steps two (2) and three (3) of the registration process.

STEP 2. Payment of Fees /Financial Clearance

To qualify for registration each semester, the student’s tuition fee payments MUST be made in accordance with one of the College’s payment plans. Students may opt to pay their tuition fee in full or access one of our three available payment plans.  Please see relevant information in iSIMS.  The payment plans are pre-set iSIMS and may be accessed upon the commencement of registration.

Payment of fees can be made at any Branch of Nova Scotia Bank (Please see relevant bank information in iSIMS).  Each student’s account will be updated in iSIMS once he/she has made the required payment.                                                                            

Students must settle all outstanding balances before the start of a new semester to initiate the registration process, that is, students should have no pre-existing balance.

  • Contract students are reminded NOT to select a payment plan as students will be billed by the Accounts Department.
