Here are a few steps that will help you 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 will not be able to attend one of our Welcome Sessions, please try to attend one of our Course Selection Workshops in July.
Prepare for course selection. Course selection for first year students starts July 26, 2018. Make sure you’ve planned out the courses you’ll choose before this date. Read through the information on Course Selection on the Faculty of Arts & Science 'New Students' website. You will find links to important information that you will require such as:
Program information (including first year required courses);
Calendar (guide to all courses/requirements in Arts & Science) and
Timetable (scheduling information/instructions).
There will also be Online Course Selection Sessions offered to help you plan your first year courses and timetable.
For more information on UC and your first year, please read through the University College New Student Guide 2018.
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 or email with any specific questions you may have. Some short course selection videos will also be posted on the Faculty of Arts & Science FAStanswers website by mid-July to help you better understand the course enrolment process.
Take part in a summer academic skills workshop such as, 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. For incoming commuter students, you may register for the MyJourney summer retreat.
