Choose your Courses wisely, and Plan accordingly for the upcoming Academic Year!

Course enrolment is just around the corner! Don’t forget to view your course enrolment start times on ROSI beginning July 16th. Course enrolment begins on ROSI on July 22 for first year degree students, July 23rd for 3rd and 4th year students, (which also includes 5th year CTEP students), July 25 for Second Year degree students, and July 26th for Non- degree students!  Hopefully, by now, I am assuming you have all made your decision as to which program you will be pursuing for the upcoming academic years, here at UTSC- a TOUGH DECISION INDEED!  When selecting your courses, keep in mind, the new regulation that has come into effect as of April 1st, 2013. Careful consideration must be taken with regards to satisfying both admission and program requirements, keeping in mind that these requirements do not remain constant, and are subject to change from year to year.  As of April 1st 2013, the program requirements should correspond to the year in which the student has declared that particular Subject Post.  This information is available on ROSI.  If you feel as though there is any sort of discrepancy, DON’T PANIC! Discuss this with your program supervisor to see whether any adjustments can be made.  A very helpful resource which will aid in your course selection process is a newly developed web-based system introduced just this year, called Degree Explorer.  It will help track your progress towards completing your degree:  http://www.rosi.utoronto.ca/degree_explorer.php.

The following resources will be  very helpful for course selection:

·         Course Calendar: lists your program requirements, and corresponding course requirements

·         Course Timetable: contains information with regards to course offerings, time period offered, Instructors, Course Codes, etc

·         Course Planner: which would provide a visual representation of your fall/winter semester timetable with appropriate courses

·         Course Finder: find courses offered at all three campuses

Good luck with course enrolment, and best of luck for the academic year of 2013-2014.  Make it a productive one!
