Codes Used in the Timetable Listings

Courses

A course listing consists of a string of 8 characters (e.g., HIS242H1):

  • three letters, which indicate the department or college offering the course
  • three numbers, which indicate the level of the course
  • one letter, which indicates the weight of the course: Y = 1 full credit (1.0), H = 1 half credit (0.5)
  • one number, which indicates the campus where the course is offered (1 = St. George)

Sessions

The summer session is divided into two terms. The first term is May 13 to June 21 (exams June 24-28); the second term is July 2 to August 12 (exams August 13-16). Note that Y section code course lectures do not meet the week of June 24-June 28; term tests may be held in these Y courses. See here for details on F1 Intensive summer course dates.

Section Code

A section code is associated with an academic activity (course) code to indicate the duration of the course:

  • F = first term (May-June)
  • S = second term (July-August)
  • Y = first and second terms (May-August)
  • F1 - intensive course in first term (May 13 - June 3)

For example, EAS103H1F is a half-credit course offered in the first term (May 13 to June 21); ECO325H1S is a half-credit course offered in the second term (July 2 to August 12); SOC309Y1Y is a full-credit course offered over the first and second terms (May 13 to August 12); and GGR246H1F1 is a half-credit course offered from May 13 to June 3. See here for details on F1 Intensive summer course dates.

Meeting Section

Meeting sections indicate the type of academic activity being conducted. Every course has at least one meeting section. The meeting section consists of a string of 7 characters (e.g., LEC 0101.) The types of academic activity being conducted are lecture (L/LEC); practical (P/PRA); tutorial (T/TUT) followed by four numbers. 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.

If you see the letters "t" or "p" in brackets next to a time, it means the meeting takes place after the first regular lecture has occurred. For example,

ACT240H1F MW4-6, MW3 (t)

means that the tutorial scheduled for Monday at 3 p.m. will not occur until after the first Monday 4-6 p.m. lecture has taken place. Where more than one letter is used for a meeting section, classes meet on each day indicated.

Time

M = Monday; T = Tuesday; W = Wednesday; R = Thursday; F = Friday

Note: Classes begin at 10 minutes after the hour and finish on the hour. Unless otherwise stated, the duration of daytime classes is 50 minutes. For example, TR10 meets both Tuesday and Thursday, beginning at 10:10 and ending at 11:00. Practical meeting times followed by (A), for "alternate", meet every other week. Note: no practical or tutorial section meets until after the first lecture.

Locations

The "Location" column consists of two elements: a two-letter building code, and a room number—e.g., SS2117. See the campus map for the names of the buildings and their locations.

Instructor

If the instructor for the course is known at the time of publication, the name will be listed.

Enrolment Indicators

Enrolment indicators are used in the "Enrolment Indicator" column of the timetable listings. They identify how enrolment controls are being used and/or alert you to different enrolment processes.

P

Students in a specific admission category or subject POSt and/or year of study will receive PRIORITY from April 8 to 14. On April 15 at 6 a.m., the priority is removed and some of the remaining spaces will be made available to all students. You can request P courses on the SWS. Waiting lists are available from April 8 to May 16 for F/Y section code courses and to July 5 for S section code courses.

R

The course is RESTRICTED to a specific group(s) of students at all times. This restriction does not change at any time during the enrolment cycle. You can request R courses on the SWS. Waiting lists are available from April 8 to May 16 for F/Y section code courses and to July 4 for S section code courses.

E

Students must ENROL at the department. Departmental enrolment instructions are located in the timetable listings. This indicator is normally used when the type of course is an independent study or field activity and where additional approvals/conditions or processes are required. You cannot request or cancel an E course on the SWS. To cancel an E course, go to the department or your college registrar’s office. Please note that certain deadlines occur on the weekend—if you need to contact the department or your college registrar’s office, it should be done the Friday before the deadline. Waiting lists are not available for these courses.

PE

Students in a specific admission category or subject POSt and/or year of study will receive PRIORITY from April 8 to 14. During this period, eligible students should enrol in the course on the SWS. Students not enrolled from the waiting list by April 14 will be removed from the waiting list on April 15. Starting April 15, the priority is removed and any remaining spaces are available to all students; however, you must ENROL at the department. Departmental enrolment instructions are located in the timetable listings. To cancel a PE course from April 15 onwards, go to the department or your college registrar’s office. Please note that certain deadlines occur on the weekend—if you need to contact the department or your college registrar’s office, it should be done the Friday before the deadline. Waiting lists are available from April 8 to 14 only.

RP

The course is RESTRICTED to a specific group of students from April 8 to 14. When priorities are removed for P courses on April 15 at 6 a.m., restrictions remain for that specific group of students to enrol; however, some PRIORITY spaces are made available to other students. You can request RP courses on ROSI. Waiting lists are available from April 8 to May 16 for F/Y section code courses and to July 4 for S section code courses.

Enrolment Controls

Enrolment controls are used to determine criteria/restrictions for enrolling in a course. Controls can be based on one or more of the following:

  • admission category
  • subject POSt (program)
  • year of study
  • college/division

The same enrolment controls apply to all sections of a course unless otherwise noted.
