All courses have an L meeting section. If there is more than one L section listed, select the one that is offered at the time most convenient for your schedule. If a course listing also includes P and T meeting sections, you must select these in addition to an L section. Meeting sections that begin with the number 5 (e.g., L5102, P5101) begin at 5 p.m. or later. Meeting sections that begin with the number 3 have an off-campus location.

Meeting sections that begin with the number 2 are reserved for students in other faculties; Arts & Science students cannot enrol in these sections.

On the SWS, meeting sections appear as: LEC = lecture, PRA = practical, TUT = tutorial.

*

When an asterisk is used in conjunction with an enrolment indicator, not all enrolment controls listed are assigned the same number of spaces in a course. For example,
VIS201H1F section L0101 has an enrolment indicator of "P*" and enrolment controls of "All St. George campus VIS subject POSts." The course has 20 spaces in total. Of the 20, five may be assigned to Year 4 students enrolled in VIS subject POSts, five to Year 3 students enrolled in VIS subject POSts, and 10 to Year 2 students enrolled in VIS subject POSts. The division of spaces is in effect during the priority period in the St. George campus round of enrolment (from July 15 to August 6). If the number of spaces in any category fills during this time, students will have the opportunity to join the waiting list for the course starting August 8.

The priorities for asterisk (*) courses will be removed on August 13. Students who did not meet the initial enrolment controls will be able to enrol or join the waiting list on August 13. Waiting lists for students who meet the initial enrolment controls are available from August 8 to September 15, 2013 for F/Y section code courses, and to January 12, 2014 for S section code courses. For students who did not meet the initial enrolment controls, waiting lists are available from August 13 to September 15, 2013 for F/Y section code courses and to January 12, 2014 for S section code courses.
