Codes and Terms Used in the Timetable Listings

A glossary of the codes and terms used in the Timetable listings.

Course

The course 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).

Section Code

A section code is associated with a course code to indicate the duration of the course. In 2017 Summer:

  • F = first term (May 15 to June 30)
  • S = second term (July 4 to August 14)
  • Y = first and second terms (May 15 to August 14)

e.g. CHM135H1-F: this course takes place in the first term of the summer session.

Activity or Meeting Section

Meeting sections indicate the type of academic activity being conducted.

  • LEC = lecture
  • PRA = practical
  • TUT = tutorial

All courses have an LEC meeting section. If there is more than one LEC section listed, select the one that is offered at the time most convenient for your schedule. If a course listing also includes PRA and TUT meeting sections, you must select these in addition to an L section. Meeting sections that begin with the number "0" (e.g., LEC0101, TUT0201) begin before 5 p.m.; meeting sections that begin with the number "5" (e.g., LEC5102, PRA5101) begin at 5 p.m. or later.

Time

This tells you the days and times when the activity takes place.

Classes begin at 10 minutes after the hour and finish on the hour. For example, on the Timetable, a Time listed as Thursday 13:00 - 15:00 means that the activity starts at 1:10 p.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. on Thursdays. Note that some activities occur in alternating weeks - if so, this information would be provided in the Timetable instructions of that course listing.

Room

The location of the activity consists of a building code and a room number—e.g., SS 2117 (Sidney Smith Hall, Room 2117). See the campus map for the names of the buildings and their locations.

Instructor

If the instructor(s) for the course is/are known, the name(s) will be listed.

Space Availability

The number of spaces available, out of the total (maximum) number in the course. e.g. 212 of 500 available means there are 212 spots available out of a maximum 500 allowed in the course. Note that this field is not updated in real time. For real time enrolment information, check ACORN.

Wait List

The waiting list indicator tells you whether the meeting section will have a waiting list available, if it becomes full. If so, the number of students currently on the waiting list is given. Note that this field is not updated in real time. For real time enrolment information, check ACORN.

e.g. Wait List
Yes: 12 students

(This course employs a waiting list and is currently full; there are 12 students on the waiting list)

Status / Notes
