If you are not a student in the program but would like to review the requirements of the major or specialist programs please see the Faculty of Arts & Science calendar.
Students in the IRHR/ER programs must must follow the program requirements based on the year they were admitted to the program. This information is available in the calendar correspoding to that same year.
Students who are not sure how to reference this information in the correct publication can simply login to Degree Explorer (DEX). DEX is the University's planning tool and automatically provides a listing of your program requirements.
DEX also allows you to review your academic history and degree requirements, or use the planner to determine how future course choices might meet your requirements.
If, for some reason, DEX is not picking up a course for your IRHR program, or if you need our office to confirm your status via DEX please email us at IRHR@utoronto.ca (make sure to provide your student ID, your program title and a brief message regarding the issue/request).
The Faculty of Arts and Science created the CR/NCR option to encourage you to expand your possible course choices to areas where you think you have interest, but may not be confident about how well you will do. With the CR/NCR option, course results don't impact your GPA. And if you find that you're doing better in it than expected, you may still choose to remove the CR/NCR option providing you do so by the deadline to cancel the course without academic penalty.
Courses with a final status of NCR will not count as degree credits and cannot be used to fulfill Program requirements nor meet prerequisites*. The CIRHR Program Office strictly enforces this policy. Requests for exemptions will not be approved.
*Exception: CR designated courses taken in the Winter 2020 session due to the COVID lockdown, and in the Winter 2015 session as a result of a strike.
Double Counting Courses
Any program combination (2 majors or 1 major and 2 minors) must include at least 12 different courses. Please review DEX or the Degree and Program Requirements listed in the Calendar. If you have any questions please contact your college registrar’s office for assistance.
If, for some reason, DEX is not picking up a course for your IRHR program please email us at IRHR@utoronto.ca (make sure to provide your student ID, your program title and a brief message regarding the issue).
Program Requirements vs Degree Requirements
If you have questions about your overall degree please consult Degree Explorer and/or your College Registrar's office. Any questions about your minor, major or specialist program must be made to the unit sponsoring the program.
