Step 2: Determine your year of study and enrol in courses beginning at your start time


Determine Your Year of Study

Your year of study is based on the number of credits (full-course equivalents) you expect to complete by the end of the 2012-2013 Fall-Winter session:

Credits you expect to complete by the end of 2012-2013 fall/winter Your year of study is...
20.0 credits or more (applies only to students enrolled in a CTEP subject POSt) 5
14.0 credits or more 4
9 to 13.5 credits 3
4 to 8.5 credits 2
less than 4.0 credits 1

Maximum Course and Term Load

Students may take a maximum of 2.0 Full Course Equivalents (FCEs) in the summer session.

Of the 2.0 FCEs, no more than two courses may be taken in the same term* (First term: May-June; Second term: July-August). Also, students may take no more than one H1F1 intensive course (May 13 - June 3) or full-credit course offered in one term (Y1F/Y1S) in a given term. See examples.

* Exception: students taking two H1Y courses (half-credit courses offered from May to August) are permitted to enrol in one additional course in each of the terms, providing the additional course is a non-intensive course (i.e. not H1F1 intensive nor Y1F/Y1S).

Course and Term Load Examples

  • Example #1:

Jo-Anne wants to take the maximum course load of 2.0 FCEs in the summer. She does not intend on taking any Intensive (H1F1) or Y1F/Y1S courses. The following combinations would be acceptable:

First term
Second term
Total Summer FCEs

In all of the above combinations, Jo-Anne does not exceed the maximum number of courses per term (two) and she does not exceed the maximum overall course load of 2.0 FCEs.

  • Example #2:

Cheryl wants to take courses in the first term of the summer (May–June) only. The following combinations would be acceptable:

    First term
    Second term
    Total Summer FCEs
    #
    Type

    1.0

    In the above combinations, Cheryl does not exceed the maximum number of courses per term (two), the maximum number of H1F1 or Y1F/Y1S courses in a given term (one), nor the maximum overall course load of 2.0 FCEs. Since she only wants to take courses in one term, she would not be able to take up to the maximum overall course load of 2.0 FCEs.

    • Example #3:

    Alex wants to take 2.0 FCEs in the summer, including CSC148H1Y and CSC165H1Y (1.0 FCE total). He can take up to 1.0 more FCE, but only one more course may be taken in each term. The following combinations would be acceptable:

    First term
    Second term
    Total Summer FCEs
    CSC148H1Y + CSC165H1Y
    +
    #
    Type
    Term load (# of courses)

    2.0
    1
    Y1Y
    three
    1
    Y1Y (cont'd)
    three
    2.0

    In all of the above combinations, Alex does not exceed the maximum number of courses per term (three, as per the exception with H1Y courses above) and he does not exceed the maximum overall course load of 2.0 FCEs. He may take another H1Y course instead (totaling 1.5 FCEs), but he would not be able to take any other courses to reach the maximum allowable course load of 2.0 FCEs.


    Waiting Lists

    All lecture meeting sections with the exception of E indicator courses have waiting lists.

    Waiting lists enable you to "line up" for a space that might become available in a lecture section that is full, or in an enrolment category that is full. If a space becomes available, and you are next on the waiting list, you will automatically be enrolled. ROSI will send an email to your U of T email account notifying you that have been enrolled into a course from a waiting list. You will still be responsible for enrolling in any practical or tutorial sections associated with the course.

    Question 1: When are waiting lists in use?

    Waiting lists are available from the start of course enrolment on April 8 until May 16 for F/Y section code courses, and until July 4 for S section code courses, with the exception of PE indicator courses, where waiting lists are available from April 8-14 only.

    Course duration Available from: Available until:
    F and Y April 8
    May 16
    S April 8
    July 4

    Question 2: How many courses can I choose to "waitlist"?

    You are allowed to be on waiting lists for a maximum of 1.0 full-course equivalent (FCE)—2 half courses, or 1 full course—however, "waitlisted" courses count towards your maximum allowable course load. In the summer session, the maximum course load is 2.0 FCEs, unless you have been restricted to part time studies, in which case your maximum course load is 1.0 FCEs.

    If you are enrolled in this many courses (with "approved" or "interim" status.).. ...you can have this many "waitlisted" courses... ...for a total of 2.0 FCEs (for students not restricted to part-time studies)
    1.0 FCEs or less 1.0 FCEs up to 2.0 total
    1.5 FCEs 0.5 FCEs 2.0 total
    2.0 FCEs 0 FCEs 2.0 total

    Question 3: Which courses have waiting lists?

    Meeting sections with a waiting list have a "Y" in the "Wait List" column of the timetable listings.

    Question 4: Are there waiting lists for practical and tutorial sections?

    No. Waiting lists are only available for lecture sections of a course.

    Remember—if you are enrolled from a waiting list into a lecture section of a course that has practicals and/or tutorials, you are responsible for adding those practical and/or tutorial sections on ROSI yourself.

    Question 5: Can I be on a waiting list for more than one lecture section of the same course?

    Yes. Regardless of the number of meeting sections you "waitlist" for a particular course, the course will still only count as either 1.0 credit (Y course) or 0.5 credit (H course) toward your course waiting list total.

    For example, if does not matter if you are on the waiting list for one or two lecture sections of ECO100Y1 (L0101, L5101)—this will only count as 1.0 credit towards your allowable waiting list total of 1.0 credits. Likewise, if you are on the waiting list for all lecture sections of ENG100H1F (L0101, L0201, L5101), this will only count as 0.5 credits towards your waiting list total of 1.0.

    Please note: If you are on the waiting list for multiple lecture sections of a course, and are enrolled into any of those lecture sections, you will be automatically removed from the other lecture section waiting lists. Be sure that you are only on the waiting list for lecture sections of the course that fit your schedule and that you want to take.

    Question 6: Can I be enrolled in one lecture section and be on a waiting list for another lecture section of the same course?

    No. If you are enrolled in a lecture section of a course, and choose to "waitlist" another lecture section of the same course, you will be removed from the lecture section that your were initially enrolled in, along with any associated practical and or tutorial sections, as soon as you confirm that you want to join the waiting list. For this reason, it is important that you carefully consider a choice to "waitlist" a meeting section if you are already enrolled in a course.

    Question 7: If I am on the waiting list for one section of a course, can I add myself later on to the waiting list for another section of the same course?

    Yes. For example if you are on the waiting list for ENG100H1F section L0101, you may add yourself to the waiting list for section L5101 at a later date without affecting your position on the waiting list for L0101. As explained in Question 5, above, the two "waitlisted" sections of ENG100H1F will count as 0.5 credits towards your waiting list maximum of 1.0 credit.

    Question 8: Can I change or drop sections that I'm on a waiting list for?

    Yes. To change sections, you must ADD yourself to the waiting list of the new section, and THEN WITHDRAW from the waiting list of the original section. Once you remove yourself from a waiting list, you lose your position—if you add yourself back, you will be at the bottom of the list.

    Question 9: How do waiting lists work?

    If you try to enrol in a course that is full, or in a course in which the space in your enrolment control group is full, ROSI will give you the waiting list option (if the course has a waiting list.)

    The message that ROSI will display contains information about the number of students already on the waiting list and the number of spaces available.

    If the meeting section is full, the message might be: "Meeting section is full. There are currently 6 students on the waitlist for 50 total spaces."

    You will be given the choice to join the waiting list for any lecture section that has a waiting list option. If you decide to join a waiting list, you will get a message indicating the sections into which you have successfully added yourself. You will now have to view your courses to see your rank on the waiting list(s) that you joined.

    If a student drops out of the course or additional space is added to the lecture section, and you are the first person on the waiting list, you will be enrolled into the lecture section. The rankings of all others on the waiting list will improve by one spot.

    Question 10: What does "rank" mean?

    Rank is your place in line. When you list your courses on ROSI, the courses will appear in the following sections:

    • APPROVED (successfully enrolled)
    • INTERIM (for AE courses – awaiting decisions)
    • REFUSED (unsuccessful enrolment or removed from course)
    • WAIT (on a waiting list)

    For courses listed in the "WAIT" section, each lecture section will include a "rank." The message from ROSI will contain information about the number of students already on the waiting list and the number of spaces available.

    If the meeting section is full, the message might be:

    "Currently waitlisted. Your rank is 4 out of 20 total space(s) in the meeting section."

    In this example, you are the fourth person on the waiting list for a section that has a total capacity of 20 students. For you to be automatically enrolled through the waiting list process, 4 students out of the 20 currently enrolled have to cancel the course, or the department has to increase the total space in the section to at least 24.

    Question 11: How many students can be on each waiting list?

    There is no limit to the number of students that can join a waiting list.

    Question 12: Will I be notified if I'm enrolled in a course through a waiting list?

    Yes. ROSI will send an email to your U of T email account notifying you that have been enrolled into a course from a waiting list. Because of this, it is extremely important that you activate and regularly check your U of T emailaccount, and update your ROSI personal information to include this email address.

    Question 13: How do I know if I've been successfully enrolled?

    ROSI will send an email to your U of T email account notifying you that have been enrolled into a course from a waiting list.

    Since the last day that you can join a waiting list or be enrolled into a course from a waiting list is either May 16 (for F and Y section code courses) or July 4 (for S section code courses), you should log onto ROSI on May 17 and/or July 5 and list your courses to see if you were enrolled in anything through the waiting list process. You’ll know that you’ve been enrolled because the course will be listed in the “APPROVED” section. If the course has any practical or tutorial sections, you are responsible for enrolling in these sections as per the departmental instructions. You are also responsible for any academic and or incidental fees arising from the course enrolment.

    If the course still appears in the "WAIT" section, check back later in the day. If the course is NOT listed in the "APPROVED" section AND you no longer have courses in the "WAIT" section, you were not enrolled through the waiting list process.

    After the waiting lists are closed, course enrolment for courses that previously had waiting lists becomes first-come, first-served. The dates for this period are:

    • May 17 to 20 for F and Y section code courses
    • July 5 to 8 for S section code courses

    During this period, you should try to enrol using ROSI.
