Frequently Asked Questions


Registration of units is completed via the Student Portal.

Login to your student Portal >> Click on Student Dashboard >> go to Course reg >>  Choose the Semester >> Select the Units and Submit.

The Riara University Online Canvas and students’ portal are the student self-service application providing students with an array of information and direct access to their academic, and personal data.

Students are allowed to change their schedule up to the second week of each semester by filing the Add and Drop Form (see Calendar of Events for specific dates) and only when mitigating circumstances have developed after the initial registration.

The special exam form is available on the Registry website during the first two weeks of  every semester. A student is supposed to request for a special exam only when he/she has done all the course work and  CATs for that particular unit. One should attach a valid proof supporting the reason for missing the end of Semester exam.

A student should fill in the Audit form. The form is reviewed by the Registry in order to establish whether the student has met all the course requirements. A student should always use his/her official university email to access the forms
