Helpful Notes: 

  • You will enroll in elective courses for the fall only. In November, you will receive information about Winter term elective enrolment.  
  • Before adding courses, you want to carefully check that there is space, it fits your timetable, and that you have the prerequisites. 
  • ACORN Enrollment Cart: You are able to add your courses into your enrollment cart prior to your start time, however, remember that you still have to click the 'Enroll' button to officially add each course, if space is available. That is, students will not be enrolled in courses from the cart automatically. 
  • Conflict-free timetable:  Students are responsible for ensuring that they have enrolled themselves into a conflict-free timetable. ACORN does not check for conflicts. 
  • Degree Requirements: Charts of your degree requirements are available online.  
  • Course Delivery: Courses will be held on campus, in person at set times as scheduled in the timetable, unless indicated otherwise 
  • Tuition Fees and Fees Payment: Your invoice is available on ACORN. Detailed information has been emailed separately to you. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at registar@daniels.utoronto.ca, book an appointment or attend one of our drop in appointment sessions.
