Can I Register Myself for an AMDEC Course?

No. Students who register for AMDEC courses must be enrolled in their local secondary school, and must have the assistance and permission of their enrolling school in order to register.

If you have the permission of your enrolling school, you will need the assistance of the guidance personnel at your school to complete the registration form.

Once I am registered how can I drop or add an AMDEC course?

Your school will help you to complete a Timetable Change Form. This form must be printed out and signed by a school official, you, and a parent/guardian if you are under the age of 18. The completed form must be sent to AMDEC (via email or fax) by your enrolling school.

How do I contact my teacher?

Your teacher’s email address can be found on the Contact Us page, or in the Course Resources widget on your course homepage once you have begun your course. Highlight and copy your teacher’s email address and paste it into your AMDSB email.

How do I complete AMDEC’s Orientation?

A link to the orientation videos will be provided in your Orientation email. You can also access all Orientation and ‘How-To’ videos by clicking on the ‘AMDEC Orientation and Help’ link in the navbar when logged into the homepage of your course in the Core website.

What is a module, and how do I know what to complete for each module?

AMDEC divides each full course into 20 modules, and each half course into 10 modules. We do this for tracking purposes. Your teacher has planned out what you need to complete for each module. You can find this plan (called the Module Outline) in the Course Resources section of each course. You may want to print it so you can refer to it easily.

What if I am applying to an Ontario college or university this year for a September start?

If you are applying to college and/or university for September 2020, please keep the following information in mind:

  1. Please let your AMDEC teacher know if you have applied to the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS) and/or the Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC) this year. This will allow your teachers to prioritize their marking and reporting, especially around mark submission dates.
  2. It is your responsibility to make sure that all required work is completed and submitted at least two weeks prior to the OCAS/OUAC mark submission dates so your teacher can mark your work and your report card can be generated and sent to your enrolling school in time for the mark submissions. Keep in mind that you must also meet (or work ahead of) the AMDEC due dates.
    • For OCAS – midterm marks for semester one courses will be submitted by your school the week of November 18th. All work up to and including module 10 must be submitted to your AMDEC teacher by November 8th at the latest.
      Midterm marks for full year courses are due to OCAS by February 7th, so you must submit all work up to and including module 10 to your AMDEC teacher by January 24th at the latest.
      For semester two courses, midterm marks are due to OCAS the week of April 20th, so all work up to and including module 10 must be submitted to your AMDEC teacher by April 11th.
    • For OUAC – midterm marks for full year courses are due to OUAC by February 13th. All work up to and including module 10 must be submitted to your AMDEC teacher by January 31st at the latest.
      For semester two courses, midterm marks are due to OUAC by April 23rd, so all work up to and including module 10 must be submitted to your AMDEC teacher by April 10th.

Please remember that your AMDEC teachers are very busy, especially around mark submission dates. A lack of planning on your part does not mean an emergency on your teacher’s part.

Your enrolling school (the school through which you registered for your AMDEC course and the school that holds your OSR) is responsible for submitting the marks for your AMDEC courses to OUAC and to OCAS. Your report cards will be sent to your school. If you do not see your marks updated on your OUAC and/or OCAS accounts during the mark submission dates, check with your guidance counsellor at your school to ensure that your report card has been received and that your marks have been submitted to OUAC and/or OCAS.
