Registration Information

2018 Fall & 2019 Winter Sessions 

One: Select Courses

Review the information provided in the timetable to decide which courses you wish to take. Enrol only in program courses. Prerequisites, co-requisites and exclusions are listed in the timetable. Course descriptions must be carefully observed. Students who do not observe these regulations may be removed from courses at any time. Non-program courses will be removed at any time they are discovered and this may have fees implications.Double-check the time for courses you have chosen to avoid conflicts. ACORN does not check for time conflicts - it is your responsibility to create a conflict-free schedule, unless otherwise noted.Students using courses taken at another university (including the University of Toronto Mississauga and the University of Toronto Scarborough) to fulfill prerequisites must contact the offering department prior to enroling or immediately after enroling in the course to avoid being removed. Two: Enrol in Courses on ACORN

You are advised to register for all courses, including courses starting in January on the following dates:(Some courses will fill on the first day of registration (including courses that begin in January!)

Two: Register in Courses

Registration Start Times: July 12 at 6 am.
The last day to add courses or make section changes to F and Y courses is September 19, 2018; for courses that begin in January, the last day to add courses or change sections on ACORN is January 20, 2019. During the open enrolment round, you can add/cancel/change your course selections. No course enrollment allowed on ACORN: August 2, 7, 9. On these days DO NOT try to add or cancel courses, or change or cancel "waitlisted" sections.

Three: Pay Fees 

To be registered for the fall/winter sessions you must both enrol in courses and pay or defer your fees by August 29, 2018 or risk being removed from classes! After this date, students who do not provide proof of payment or that their fees have been deferred (OSAP or Tuition Waiver) will be removed from classes at the begininng of September.
NOTE: If you enrol in 2019 winter courses only, you must still pay the first installment of fees by August 29, 2018 to avoid being removed from your courses!

Four: Go to class

Prerequisites, corequisites and exclusions must be observed. Students enrolled in courses for which they do not have the published prerequisites or enrol in courses that are not part of CHRM will have their registration in those courses cancelled at any time such registation is discovered and without warning and charged the appropriate fees according to the fees refund schedule.

Important Notes
Changes are made in real-time.

Changes are recorded immediately on the student record system. You will know right away whether or not the transaction is successful.

View your courses in the Enrol & Manage menu

Always take a look at your courses in the Enrol & Manage: Courses menu after you add or cancel courses or make changes to verify you have done what you intended to do. You are charged fees for all courses in which you are enrolled. 

Cancellation of Your Last Course

ACORN will warn you if you are cancelling your last course. If you do not intend to take any other courses in the 2016 summer session, choose the "cancel registration" option. This will ensure that your fees account will be adjusted properly. If you intend to enrol in other courses later in the session, consult your College Registrar's office for advice.

Mailing Address and Contact Information

Be sure to keep all your contact information, including your Mailing Address, telephone number and U of T email, current on ACORN at all times. Communications from the University are sent to your U of T email address or Mailing Address only. The University is not responsible if these communications are not received because of incorrect information recorded on ACORN.

All students at the University of Toronto have a student account. To review your account balance and invoice, log in to your ACORN account and click on "Financial Accounts". Your student account is managed by Student Accounts, which is also referred to as the Fees Office. The Fees Office is responsible for your tuition and ancillary fees, processing payments, issuing refunds and applying service charges.

Fee payments must be made at a financial institution. The easiest way to do this is to set up a U of T account with your online banking service. Details on how to do this can be found on the Student Accounts website.

How and when to pay

For full payment instructions, see the Office of Student Accounts website. To be automatically registered for the fall-winter session you must enrol in courses AND pay at least the minimum first installment of your fees (or officially defer them) by August 30If your payment has not been received or officially deferred by August 30, you will be removed from your courses at any time. We will allow a processing time of 10 days for bank payments to be received by the University.

IMPORTANT: Students on waiting lists will be added to the course when space is made available at any time. You may not be able to get back into a course that you have been removed from because students on waiting lists may have filled the space created.

Students who have been removed from courses and had their registrations cancelled will have to show proof of payment before they can attempt to enrol in courses again. A late registration fee will also be charged. As the August 30 payment/deferral deadline approaches, ACORN will warn you that your registration is about to be cancelled when you log on, if your payment has not been received by the University.

You can check to see if you are registered on ACORN. Log on and select “Course Enrolment” from the main menu. Your registration is complete if your status shown is "Registered" for the current session. If your status is “Invited” you need to pay or defer your fees or you risk being removed from your courses! You should check your status a few days after you have paid to be safe.

What happens if I don't pay or defer by August 30?

If your payment or deferral has not been received by the University by August 30, you will be removed from your courses and your space in each course may be filled by a student from a waiting list. We will allow a processing time of 10 days for bank payments to be received by the University. If you are reinstated because of late fees payment, you will also be charged a late registration fee. You will only be reinstated into courses if there is space.

Electronic payments

Once you enrol in courses, you should pay your fees using electronic payment (see below). You can obtain an up-to-date balance on ACORN immediately after changing your course enrolments.

You can pay your fees using telephone or online banking if your bank offers this service. Provide your financial institution with your account number and the name "University of Toronto" for their telephone or online banking service. Your account number is displayed on the invoice format of your account on ACORN. The account number consists up to the first five characters of your surname (in capital letters) and 10 numbers which is your student number with leading zeroes (if applicable). Make sure you distinguish between the letter ‘O’ and the number ‘zero’.

Sample account numbers
  • Anthony Cho’s student number is 1000123456; his account number is CHO1000123456.
  • Jane Seto-Paul's student number is 987654321; hyphens and spaces are not used, so her account number is SETOP0987654321.
  • Christine Elias' student number is 9234578; her account number is ELIAS0009234578.

Be sure to make a note of the confirmation number in case there is a delay in processing your payment. If you pay after August 30, make sure you get proof of payment that shows the date and amount you paid, and show it to your college registrar’s office as soon as possible to complete your registration. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of all your course enrolments.

For full payment instructions, see the Office of Student Accounts website.

Official Registration

Registration will occur automatically if you pay at least the minimum first installment of your fees (or officially defer them) by August 30. We will allow a processing time of 10 days for bank payments to be received by the University. If you've made your minimum payment on or before August 30 and the payment doesn't appear immediately, don't worry - just check back on ACORN a few days after you pay. 

Just taking courses starting in January?

If you enrol in 2018 winter session courses only, you must pay at least the first installment of fees by August 30 to avoid being removed from your courses. If you enrol in 2018 winter session courses only after August 30, you must pay at least the first installment of fees and show proof of payment to your college registrar's office as soon as possible or risk removal from the course(s). A late registration fee may be charged.

Owe fees from a previous session?

Students with outstanding financial obligations to the University (including tuition and residence charges) must pay their fees in full before registering in the next academic session.

NOTE: Those students with significant fees arrears from previous sessions will not be allowed to enroll in courses until the arrears are paid in full.

Fees payments will be applied first to outstanding debt from previous sessions before being applied to new academic term. Please ensure that your payment is sufficient to cover all arrears as well as the minimum first payment, or you will not be registered.

OSAP deferrals

If you have no outstanding fees from previous sessions and if you applied for OSAP by the specified deadline (see below), you may request deferral of your fees payment. This deferral is not automatic! You must complete the deferral:

  • online, on ACORN or
  • at the Office of Student Accounts, 215 Huron Street; or
  • at Woodsworth College registrar's office

by August 19 or you will be removed from your courses.

For details, see the Student Accounts website.

Returning students should apply for OSAP by May 31 and new students by June 15. It is important that you meet these deadlines; if you do so and you are eligible to receive loans, you may request a fees deferral, your OSAP entitlement will be determined before classes begin, and you can budget accordingly.

Breakdown of fees

Compulsory fees for registration consist of academic, incidental and ancillary fees.

See the Student Accounts website in mid-July for the fees schedule.

Fees for the 2017-2018 fall/winter sessions had not been approved by the University’s Business Board and Governing Council at press time. Check the Student Accounts website at http://www.fees.utoronto.ca for updated fees amounts. The updated fees will be reflected on your financial account on ACORN in mid-July.

Paying fees for changed course loads

If you change your course load after you have made a payment, you can find out how much you owe by going to ACORN and selecting “Financial Accounts” from the main menu. Your current balance is displayed at the top of that page. You can make another payment for the balance. Please be aware that changing your course load could sometimes result in significant changes in your fee charges, depending on when you make the change.

How do I know that my enrolment is complete?

You can check to see if you are registered on ACORN. Log on and select “Course Enrolment” from the main menu. Your registration is complete if your status shown is "Registered" for the current session. If your status is “Invited” you need to pay or defer your fees or you risk being removed from your courses! You should check your status a few days after you have paid to be safe.

Refunds

If you withdraw from courses within the appropriate refund period and do not enrol in further courses, you may request a refund of the fees by emailing a request to the Office of Student Accounts. Before you send your email, check your account balance on ACORN to make sure you have a credit balance. You may also wish to set up direct deposit by recording your banking information on ACORN prior to requesting the refund.

Your student account is managed by Student Accounts, which is also referred to as the Fees Office. The Fees Office is responsible for your tuition and ancillary fees, processing payments, issuing refunds and applying service charges. 

Adding/Cancelling Courses
Section Code Final Date to Add Final Date to Cancel (see important note*)
F September 19, 2018 November 5, 2018
Y September 19, 2018 February 18, 2019
S January 20, 2019 March 17, 2019

*Important Note: The last date to cancel a course or cancel your registration in a session with no academic penalty DOES NOT coincide with the last date to be eligible for a refund. The refund schedule is posted on the Student Accounts web site.

Cancelling courses and fees implications

If you decide that you do not want a course, you must cancel it as soon as possible. This applies to courses that you have waitlisted as well as those in which you are enrolled. Please do not occupy a space that you know you do not want. Only by cancelling the course using ACORN will your space become available to another student.

It is important to officially cancel a course as soon as you have decided you do not want to continue in it, since fees refunds are calculated according to the date the cancellation is recorded. Cancellations must be done on ACORN. Courses that are not cancelled by the deadlines will remain on your record and may count as failures. A cancellation of your registration in the fall/winter session is subject to a minimum charge. Check the Student Accounts web site for details.

Cancellation of Your Last Course

 ACORN will warn you if you are cancelling your last course. If you do not intend to take any other courses in the Fall 2018 / Winter 2019 sessions, choose the "cancel registration" option. This will ensure that your fees account will be adjusted properly.

Space in courses

It is University policy that the number of students enrolled in a course cannot exceed the capacity of the room as dictated by fire regulations. Some departments, for pedagogical reasons, assign lower capacities than room size.

The Faculty makes every attempt to ensure that the room assigned will accommodate the number of students expected to enrol; however, as there is not unlimited space to meet demand, some students may not obtain space in every course they want. You may add yourself to a waiting list for a course or courses, but this does not guarantee enrolment in the course(s); therefore, you are advised to select alternative courses in which to enrol in the event that you are unable to enrol in a course that remains full.

We recommend that you prepare as flexible a timetable as possible, with as many alternative course choices as possible.

If a class is full on the last day to enrol and you are not officially enrolled in the course, you do not have the right to be in the class, and will not be granted late registration.

Note: To be fair to all students, selling/buying places in courses is not permitted. Students found selling/buying courses will be reported to the Dean's Office for academic misconduct, and may face penalties.

Course (also called "Academic Activity")
  • 3 letters denoting the department or college sponsoring the course
  • 3 numbers denoting the level
  • 1 letter indicating the credit or full-course equivalent (FCE) value (H = 0.5 credit, Y = 1.0 credit)
  • 1 number indicating the campus (1 = St. George campus)

For example, ECO100Y1 is a 100-level course taught by the Department of Economics, with a credit value of 1, taught at the St. George campus.

Section Code
  • F = fall session
  • S = winter session
  • Y = fall and winter sessions
Title
  • abbreviated version of the full title of the course given in the Calendar; subtitle if used
Meeting Section
  • LEC or L = lecture
  • PRA or P = practical
  • TUT or T = tutorial

All courses have an L meeting section. If there is more than one L section listed, select the one that is offered at the time most convenient for your schedule. If a course listing also includes P and T meeting sections, you must select these in addition to an L section. Meeting sections that begin with the number 5 (e.g., L5102, P5101) begin at 5 p.m. or later. Meeting sections that begin with the number 3 have an off-campus location.

Meeting sections that begin with the number 2 are reserved for students in other faculties; Arts & Science students cannot enrol in these sections. On the SWS, meeting sections appear as: LEC = lecture, PRA = practical, TUT = tutorial.

Waiting List Indicator
  • Y indicates that the meeting section has a waiting list
  • N indicates that the meeting section does not have a waiting list
Time
  • M = Monday
  • T = Tuesday
  • W = Wednesday
  • R = Thursday
  • F = Friday
  • S = Saturday

Where more than one letter is used for a meeting section, classes meet on each day indicated. Classes begin at 10 minutes after the hour and finish on the hour. Unless otherwise stated, the duration of daytime classes is 50 minutes. For example, "TR10" meets both Tuesday and Thursday, beginning at 10:10 and ending at 11:00. Practical meeting times followed by (A) meet every other week.

Place
  • Central = central area of campus between Queen’s Park and St. George Street
  • East = area of campus east of Queen’s Park
  • West = area of campus west of St. George Street
Instructor

If the instructor for the course is known at the time of publication, the name will be listed. As instructors are assigned to courses, information will be updated on the Faculty Registrar's timetable web site. Instructor names will be posted before classes begin.

Waiting lists enable you to "line up" for a space that might become available in a lecture section that is full, or in an enrolment category that is full. Being on the waiting list does not guarantee you a space in the course. If a space becomes available, and you are next on the waiting list, you will automatically be enrolled.

After the enrolment happens, a notification email will be sent to your UTORmail email address. You will be responsible for any academic and or incidental fees arising from the course enrolment. Failure to check your utor account or timetable will not exempt you from any fees arising from the course enrolment.

Not all courses have waiting lists. Check the timetable “waiting list” column. There are no fees associated with being on the waiting list for a course, but if you are enrolled from the waiting list, you will automatically be charged the appropriate academic and incidental fees.

Waiting lists will be closed as of September 14, 2018 for F and Y section code courses; January 17, 2019 for S section code courses. Log on to ACORN on September 15 and January 18 if you were on a waiting list and list your courses.

If courses still appear in the section called “Wait” in the listing, check back alter in the day. If the course is NOT listed in the section called “Approved” AND you no longer have courses in the section called “Wait,” you were not enrolled through the waiting list process.

From September 15-19 (for F and Y section code courses) and January 18-20 (for S section code courses), enrolment in courses that previously had waiting lists becomes first-come, first-served. At this stage, you should try to enrol using ACORN.

Please note that if you are on the waiting list for any S section code courses, and space becomes available, you will be automatically enrolled and your course load could become a full-time course load. If your status becomes full-time, you will be responsible for full-time program fees. If you change your course load and your status becomes part time after this occurs, you will be responsible for any charges resulting from the status changes. Your status will be reviewed periodically and updated to full-time if your course load changes to full-time; if this happens, your fees will be adjusted to reflect your full-time status.

When are waiting lists in use?

Waiting lists are available from the start of course enrolment until September 14, 2018 at the end of the day for F/Y section code courses and January 17, 2019 at the end of the day for S section code courses.

How many courses can I choose to "waitlist"?

You are allowed to be on waiting lists for a maximum of 2.0 full-course equivalents (i.e. any combination of Y and H courses totaling no more than 2.0 credits); however, “waitlisted” courses count towards your maximum allowable course load. The maximum allowable course load for part-time CHRM students is 3.5. If you are enrolled in 3.5 courses you may be waitlisted for 1.5 courses.

Are there waiting lists for practicals and tutorials?

No. You are responsible for adding practical and/or tutorial sections on ACORN yourself.

Can I be on a waiting list for more than one lecture section of the same course?

Yes. If you are on the waiting list for multiple lecture sections of a course, and are subsequently enrolled into any one of these lecture sections, you will automatically be removed from the other waiting lists, so make sure that you are only on the waiting list for lecture sections of the course that fit your schedule and that you are willing to take.

Can I be enrolled in one lecture section and be on a waiting list for another lecture section of the same course?

No. If you are enrolled in a lecture meeting section of a course, and choose to waitlist for another lecture meeting section of the same course, you will be removed from the lecture section that you are enrolled in, along with any associated practical or tutorial sections, as soon as you join the waiting list. For this reason, it is important that you carefully consider a choice to “waitlist” for a meeting section if you are already enrolled in a course.

Can I change or drop sections that I'm on a waiting list for?

Yes. To change sections, you must ADD yourself to the waiting list of the new section, and THEN WITHDRAW from the waiting list of the original section. Once you remove yourself from a waiting list, you lose your position—if you add yourself back, you will be at the bottom of that list.

How do waiting lists work?

If you try to enrol in a course that is full, or in a course in which the space for your enrolment control group is full, ACORN will give you the waiting list option (if the course has a waiting list.)

The message that ACORN will display varies depending on whether the course is completely full, or if the space allotted for your enrolment category is full. The message will contain information about the number of students already on the waiting list and the number of spaces available.

You will be given the choice to join the waiting list for any lecture section that has a waiting list option. If you decide to join a waiting list, you will get a message indicating the sections to which you have successfully added yourself. You will now have to view your courses to see your rank on the waiting list(s) that you joined.

Will I be notified if I'm enrolled in a course through a waiting list?

Yes! ACORN will send an email to your UTORmail account notifying you that have been enrolled into a course from a waiting list. It is extremely important that you activate and regularly check your UTORmail account, and update your ACORN personal information to include the UTORmail email address. You will still be responsible for enrolling in any practical or tutorial sections associated with the course.

How do I know if I've been successfully enrolled?

Log in to ACORN periodically, and list your courses and/or check your rank or check your UTORmail account regularly for an email notification of enrolment. It is recommended that you check your rank on ACORN occasionally so that you can assess the situation and make an informed decision about remaining on the waiting list or choosing an alternate course that has available space.

It is important to note that ACORN does not enrol students from the waiting lists into courses in real-time; instead, the enrolments are done in batches. This means that there is no need to check ACORN many times per day to see if you’ve been enrolled from a waiting list.

Since the last day that you can join a waiting list or be enrolled into a course from a waiting list is September 19 for F and Y section code courses and January 20 for S section code courses, you should log on to ACORN on September 15 and/or January 18 and list your courses to see if you were enrolled in anything through the waiting list process. You’ll know that you’ve been enrolled because the course will be listed in the section called “Approved." If the course has any practical and or tutorial sections, you are responsible for enrolling in these sections as per the departmental instructions. You are also responsible for any academic and or incidental fees arising from the course enrolment.
