How does registration work? Registration is a first-come, first-registered system. Students may log in to the Academic Portal and register for courses during Open Registration period.  You will receive notification of your registration for each semester.  After all students are registered, students can drop or add a course with an open seat during the open registration period only. Please note that waiting until the end of the Open Registration period to select classes will likely mean that your course schedule will be inconvenient, and a course section of your preference may be full. There is no waitlist option for closed courses. Closed classes are closed, although there may be availability as other students add/drop. 


We may add more sections or cancel under-enrolled course sections, as necessary. Students will be notified via their TCSPP school email when such changes are made. Faculty may be reassigned to accommodate new courses and sections. Students typically are not notified of faculty changes unless the course is Professional Development Group. Students are encouraged to review their course schedule especially before the beginning of the semester to ensure accuracy. 


All students will visit the following website to complete course registration. Please note that you will need your provided username and password in order to access registration.

The simplest and best registration tip we can offer is this: After your registration is complete, logout of the registration system, log back in, and print a copy of your confirmed schedule. If you registered correctly, your classes will have a status of "Registered" instead of "Selected" or "Bookmarked." By doing so, you can confirm that your requested registration was approved. You should save this c​​opy of your schedule. 


CANVAS: Canvas is The Chicago School's online learning management system. Students will have access to courses in Canvas the Friday before classes begin, if not sooner.  Canvas can be used to post syllabi, host discussion boards, turn in assignments, and much more. 


To access Canvas, visit Please review the quick start guide, found at to become familiar with Canvas and how it may be used. 

TCSPP School Email: Once you have submitted your deposit to attend classes at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, your TCSPP student email will be the primary form of communication used by the school and faculty. It is important to check email frequently to ensure you do not miss important updates, information and communications.​
