  • 3 numbers denoting the level
  • 1 letter indicating the credit or full-course equivalent (FCE) value (H = 0.5 credit, Y = 1.0 credit)

Section Code

  • F = fall session
  • S = winter session
  • Y = fall and winter sessions

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

Information and instructions on waiting lists.

  • Y indicates that the meeting section has a waiting list
  • N indicates that the meeting section does not have a waiting list


  • M = Monday
  • T = Tuesday
  • W = Wednesday

  • 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.
