Connect to UC 101
UC 101: Your New Student Guide is a virtual space that gives you a chance to learn about your new UC community and participate in the planning process for your first year.
On UC 101, we host live chats with academic advisors on focused topics like academic planning, course selection and enrolment, fees and finances, and other information you’ll need to settle in for what will no doubt be a memorable first year.
As a member of the incoming class at UC you are automatically enrolled in UC 101 in late May. We will email you to let you know that you have been enrolled. You can then log in to UC 101 on Quercus at q.utoronto.ca.
Plan Your Courses & Finances
Be sure to log in to UC 101 on Quercus for specialized advice and guidance for planning your first year. We will email you in late May/early June to let you know you have been enrolled in UC 101 and can log in. We also hold Q&A sessions throughout the summer to address your questions about course enrolment, finances, and more. The schedule for the Q&A sessions is posted on UC 101.
In addition to UC 101, the Faculty of Arts & Science provides a Guide to Planning Your First Year to help you get ready for September. This guide will help you navigate your course selection resources, plan your finances, and prepare for your arrival in September.
