2018-19 Course Enrolment and Registration

Course Enrolment for 2018-19

Course enrolment begins in mid-July. All Daniels Faculty students are assigned start times; degree students are assigned start times according to year of study and non-degree students are assigned start times as a separate group.

If you have completed:

  • fewer than 4.0 Full Course Equivalents (FCE), your year of study is 1. You can view your start time on ACORN July 20 and your enrolment period will begin July 26.
  • between 4.0 and 8.5 FCE, your year of study is 2. You can view your start time on ACORN July 13 and your enrolment period will begin July 19.
  • between 9.0 and 13.5 FCE, your year of study is 3. You can view your start time on ACORN July 9 and your enrolment period will begin July 16.
  • more than 14.0 FCE, your year of study is 4/5. You can view your start time on ACORN July 4 and your enrolment period will begin July 11.

You can view your assigned start time on ACORN.  On the first day of course enrolment for your year of study, you will not be able to access any services on the student online service until your start time.

ACORN is closed for course enrolment on Thursday August 2, Tuesday August 7, and Thursday August 9. On these days please DO NOT try to add or cancel courses, or change or cancel "waitlisted" sections.

Registration Deadline

Registration will occur automatically upon your payment of the minimum installment of your fees (or upon your official deferral of your fees) by August 29. If your payment has not been received or officially deferred by August 29, you will be removed from your courses at any time. A 10 day processing time is in place for bank payments to be received by the University before removing you from courses. Note that reinstatement in courses is not guaranteed as spaces may be filled. If you wish to register after you have been removed, you will be charged a reinstatement fee.

If you do not enrol in courses by the August 29 deadline, your registration status for the session is automatically changed to "Financially Cancelled." If your status is "Financially Cancelled" and you wish to take courses, contact the Office of the Registrar and Student Services for instructions.

Session Load

Students may take a maximum session load of 6.0 full course equivalents (FCE) across the Fall/Winter academic session. Note that the maximum session load is set at 5.0 FCE until priority is removed for course enrolment. On August 3, priorities are removed and the maximum session load is changed from 5.0 to 6.0 FCE; course enrolment opens on the student online service.

Students may take a maximum term load of 6 courses (or 3.0 FCE) in each of the Fall (September to December) and the Winter (January to April) terms, unless their academic status is “On Probation.” Students on academic probation may take a maximum term load of 5 courses (or 2.5 FCE) in each of the Fall and Winter terms.

Students should always try to balance their course enrolments across the Fall and the Winter, if possible. If you are enrolled in more than the maximum allowable term load, you will be removed from excess course enrolments on an on-going basis until after the last day to add courses. It is a student’s responsibility to monitor course enrolment and adhere to the maximum term load regulations.

How to read the timetable

The Academic Timetable provides course meeting information (day, time, location, enrolment conditions) for the 2018-19 Fall/Winter session. The Daniels Faculty undergraduate timetable includes all undergraduate Architectural Studies [ARC], Visual Studies [VIS], and Joint Architectural Studies and Visual Studies courses [JAV].

ARC, VIS, and JAV course descriptions, including prerequisites, and Architectural Studies and Visual Studies program requirements are listed in the Daniels Faculty Undergraduate Academic Calendar. 

The primary meeting section of Daniels undergraduate courses may either be an L (LEC; Lecture) or P (PRA; Practical) meeting section. Waitlists are only available for a course’s primary meeting section.

The Lecture is the primary meeting section for all courses with a Lecture only or a Lecture and a Tutorial (T; TUT). If there is more than one Lecture section listed, select the one that is offered at the time most convenient for your schedule. If the course has both Lecture and Tutorial sections, you must enrol in one of each.

The Practical is the primary meeting section for all courses with a Practical only or a Practical and a Lecture, with the exception of ARC302H1.* If there is more than one Practical section listed, select the one that is offered at the time most convenient for your schedule. If the course has both Practical and Lecture sections, you must enrol in one of each.

*The primary meeting section for ARC302H1 is the Lecture. You must enrol in both the Lecture and the Practical.
