September Deadlines

We hope your first few days of classes have gone smoothly! Here are a few upcoming deadlines that you should take note of:

  • Registration Status: The deadline to pay/defer your tuition fees was August 30 and by now, your registration status on ACORN should be "Registered". If your status is still "Invited", it is very important that you show proof of payment to your College immediately, and no later than noon on September 14, so that you don't lose your course enrolments.
  • Waiting Lists: Waiting lists in fall term (F) and full-year (Y) courses will be removed at the end of day on September 15.
  • Deadline to add or change meeting sections in F and Y courses: The last day to add F/Y courses is September 20. This is also the deadline to change lecture/practical/tutorial meeting sections in F/Y courses.
  • Deadline to enrol in programs: If you're in second year or higher, please note that September 20 is also the deadline to finalize your program enrolment for 2017-18. If you've got an "Invited" status in a Type 2/2L/3 program and you intend to accept it, be sure to officially enrol on ACORN by September 20!
  • Deadline to pay your Fall fees: The 2017 Fall portion of your fees are due by September 30. Pay them in full by this date to avoid service charges. More info
