Keep checking the personal email you used to sign up for your Future Student account. Several days after your acceptance, you will receive an email at this address from CBU IT Services (helpdesk@cbu.ca) outlining your new CBU email information.

 

Once you have your CBU email set up, you can also set up your Office 365 account to get access to premium productivity tools.

The Compass Student System is CBUs student portal. It provides student access to self-service functionality related to admissions, registration, timetables and exam schedules, tracking financials and more.

 

Instructions for how to access your Compass account can be found at cbu.ca/your-accounts.

This step only applies to International students. Canadian students should skip this step.

The team at the First Year Advising Centre (FYAC)will help define your academic goals, create a schedule that works for you, register your classes and everything else that’s needed in order to prepare for university.

 

Students can book their first Advising appointment in their Compass account. Additional instructions to book an appointment can be found here.

CBU encourages students to register as soon as possible after advising, as courses are limited.  Browse the Compass student system and watch the How-to-CBU YouTube series to ensure your registration goes as planned. Registration FAQs can be found here.
