Course Scheduling & Conflict Resolution

Course Scheduling – To help you as you are scheduling your courses and to avoid course conflicts, York University has tools and resources to guide you!

  • Use the Visual Schedule Builder (VSB) Tool! Note, VSB does not register you in courses. It helps you create an optimal course schedule plan. You then use it to enroll in courses through the Registration and Enrolment Module (REM). VSB does not replace academic advising or degree auditing. It cannot check prerequisites or financial / enrolment blocks that may prevent enrolment in the courses you select.
  • Tips & Tricks to resolve course conflicts, refine course results, and enroll immediately can be found here.
