Here’s what you can do to get started with course selection and preparing for September:
Register for one of our Welcome Sessions in June. We'll go over everything you need to know about your first year in these sessions!
If you didn't make it to one of our Welcome Sessions, try to attend one of our Course Selection Workshops in July.
To prepare for course selection, read through the information on Course Selection on the Faculty of Arts & Science New Students website. There are links here to all the materials you’ll need – Program information (listing 1st year required courses), Calendar (guide to all courses/requirements in Arts & Science) and Timetable (scheduling information/instructions). Course selection for first year students is July 27th, so make sure you’ve planned the courses you’ll choose before this date. There are online Course Selection sessions to help you plan your 1st year courses and timetable.
For more information on UC and your 1st year, read the University College New Student Guide 2017 below.
Consider a unique first year opportunity: UC One: Engaging Toronto, First Year 199 Seminars, and First Year Learning Communities (extra-curricular.)
For extra help with course selection, attend one of our Course Selection Workshops in July. If you can’t attend a workshop, please feel free to join one of our online group chat sessions in July or contact us by phone/email with any specific questions you have. Some short course selection videos will also be posted on the Faculty’s FAStanswers website by mid-July to help you understand the process.
Take part in a summer academic skills workshop: UC Writing Centre's Getting Started Early or Accessibility Services' Moving Forward Transition Program.
Be sure to sign up for and attend Orientation Week or Thrive at UC Orientation, and for incoming commuter students, register for the MyJourney summer retreat.
All students should attend UC Day on Tuesday September 5th.
- If you are an International Student, hold the date for our International Student Lunch that will be held on Thursday September 7th, 12:30 - 2:00pm Register here.
The Registrar's Office offers Welcome Sessions for new students in June of each year. Both sessions are identical, so you just need to register for one.
