Codes Used in the Timetable Listings
A glossary of the codes used in the Timetable listings.
Computer Science [CSC courses - includes ECE]
The course or activity code tells you the Department or College offering the course, the level of the course, the credit value of the course and the campus where the course is offered.
For example, ANT 204 H 1 is:
- offered by the Department of Anthropology (ANT),
- at the 200-level (204),
- has a credit value of 0.5 (H = 0.5 credit; Y = 1.0 credit), and
- taught at the St. George campus (1 = St. George).
A section code is associated with an academic activity (course) code to indicate the duration of the course. In 2016 Summer:
- F = first term (May 9 to June 24)
- S = second term (June 27 to August 15)
- Y = first and second terms (May 9 to August 15)
This is an abbreviated version of the full title of the course given in the Calendar; subtitle if used.
Meeting sections indicate the type of academic activity being conducted.
- LEC or L = lecture
- PRA or P = practical
- TUT or T = tutorial
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 "0" (e.g., L0101, T0201) begin before 5 p.m.; meeting sections that begin with the number "5" (e.g., L5102, P5101) begin at 5 p.m. or later.
On ACORN, meeting sections appear as: LEC = lecture, PRA = practical, TUT = tutorial.
The waiting list indicator tells you whether the meeting section will have a waiting list available, if it becomes full.
- Y = yes, there will be a waiting list
- N = no, there will not be a waiting list
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.
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.
The "Location" column consists of a building code and a room number—e.g., SS2117. See the campus map for the names of the buildings and their locations.
If the instructor for the course is known, the name will be listed.
Enrolment indicators identify how enrolment controls are being used and/or alert you to different enrolment processes.

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
- program of study
- year of study
The same enrolment controls apply to all sections of a course unless otherwise noted.
