‘H’ indicates 0.5 credit A general location on campus is provided for first-year courses to assist you in planning your academic timetable. Avoid back-to-back East/West classes as it is difficult to travel across campus in the 10 minute interval between classes ‘F’ section code indicates course takes place in First Term – Sept. to Dec. Several Lecture, Practical and Tutorial Meeting Sections to choose from. You must choose one of each type if offered (not every course will offer Practical and Tutorial Meeting Sections) Some courses will offer a waitlist option if the meeting section is filled. A ‘Y’ indicator means that a waitlist function is available on ROSI (A) Indicates that the Practical (lab) Meeting Section takes place in alternate weeks, not every week. This may allow you to create a more “efficient” timetable by selecting a Practical Meeting Section for a first-year science course that will alternate - in the same time slot - with a Practical Meeting Section in another first-year science course. e.g. CHM138H1 (F) P0201 (Tues. 2:10-5:00) will alternate with BIO120H1 (F) P0202 (Tues. 1:30-4:30). ( Refer to Timetable for more details. ) Enrolment Indicators and Controls give access to a course to specific groups of students for specific times and some courses – those with ‘E’ Enrolment Indicators cannot be added via ROSI/SWS Meeting Section codes correspond to specific time slots e.g. Lecture L0201 takes place on Tues. (‘T’), Thurs. (‘R’) and Fri (‘F’), from 12:10 till 1:00 p.m. (Classes begin 10 minutes after the hour and end on the hour.) Practical (lab) P0401 takes place on (‘R’) Thurs. from 2:10 till 5:00 p.m.

There are limits on the number of 100-level courses that can be used for credit towards your degree Combination of full and half credits. No time limit for the completion of a degree Subject POSts (Programs Of Study) are the focus of your degree and you should select a combination of first- year courses that will give you the option to enter several different Subject POSts at the end of your first year of study You can complete more than the “minimum” number of Subject POSts. You can select up to 3 Subject POSts with a maximum of 2 large Subject POSts ( e.g. Majors or Specialists). Breadth Requirements are “exit” requirements – they don’t have to be completed in your first year of study but are required for the completion of your degree. The CGPA determines your academic status (e.g. In Good Standing, On Academic Probation etc.) and your eligibility to graduate. Grades in the low- to-mid 60’s would provide a CGPA in the 1.85 range. Students admitted after September 2010 do NOT complete the Distribution Requirement
Must take at least 4.0 credits from the following categories: take at least 4.0 credits from the following categories: 1. Creative and Cultural Representations (CCR) 2. Thought, Belief and Behaviour (TBB) 3. Society and Its Institutions (SII) 4. Living Things and their Environment (LTE) 5. The Physical and Mathematical Universes (PMU) Credits must be either: a) 1.0 credit in each of 4 of the 5 categories; or b) 1.0 credit in each of 3 of the 5 categories and 0.5 in each of the other 2 categories **Commerce students must complete at least 1.0 FCE from Category 1 **Other restrictions/rules also exist (see Calendar - ‘Degree Requirements’) Note the specific requirement for Commerce Students
More detailed Subject POSt information, including first- year required courses, can be found in the Arts and Science Calendar. Most Subject POSts will have one or more required first-year courses and you should select your combination of 5.0 first-year credits carefully to ensure that you will have access to a variety of Subject POSt options at the end of your first year of study. Start with the listing of Subject POSt options on the New Students website under ‘Course Selection’New Students
Economics Major (Arts program) This is a limited enrolment program.

1.Courses that can help fulfill the Breadth Requirement: The required courses for your programs of interest will fulfill some of your breadth requirement. You don’t have to complete the Breadth requirement in 1st year, but it can be a good opportunity to take an elective course in a category you need Step 4: Consider Elective Course Options

You don’t have to complete the Breadth requirement in 1st year, but it can be a good opportunity to take an elective course in a category you need 2.Small class experiences – 199 courses, FLCs, Foundational Year Programs, eg. UC One199 courses FLCsFoundational Year Programs UC One These are unique opportunities only available in your 1 st year, including a chance to get to know your professor - each class usually has no more than 25 students 199 courses are designed to help fulfill the breadth requirement and you should ideally choose one in a category that is different from your main programs of interest 3.Skills development courses – e.g. writing courses and languages: Courses such as Effective Writing (ENG100H1) or Writing Essays (INI103H1) can help build skills that will be valuable for other courses you take U. of T. offers over 40 different languages to learn 4.Introductory courses that will give you additional Subject POSt options: It is important to have several options for Subject POSts at the end of 1 st year in case your first choice is not what you expected or you do not achieve the grade needed to enter the program Taking an additional introductory course allows you to explore other interests you may have 5.Explore something that wasn’t available in high school or that may help towards future goals: The advantage of being at a university as large as U. of T. is the huge selection of courses Professional programs (medicine, law, social work etc.) generally focus on marks and not program choices, but may suggest some courses to take during your undergraduate years 6.Anti-Calendar - available online at www.assu.ca: www.assu.ca Consider what other students have thought of courses The Anti-Calendar is published by the student union and provides student evaluations of courses and professors to help students make informed choices Step 4: Consider Elective Course Options

List your 5.0 credits in order of priority. You select all of your First Term, Second Term and Full Session courses when you log on to ROSI at your assigned start time. Make timetabling easier by scheduling the 1 st choice of Lecture/Practical/Tutorial Meeting Sections for all 5.0 credits before attempting to schedule 2 nd or 3 rd choice “back-up” meeting sections for each course. Try to select 2 nd and 3 rd choice “back-up” Meeting Sections in the event that your first choice of Lecture/Practical/Tutorial is filled. Ensure that these “back-up” options do not create timetable conflicts or back-to-back East/West difficulties Choose alternate courses in the event that you cannot obtain a space in one of your first 5.0 preferred courses Courses selected to meet the first- year requirements for entry to your preferred Subject POSts Elective courses selected to fulfill additional breadth requirements; provide alternate/back- up program options; allow for the acquisition of new skills etc. You may take 200-level (second year) courses in your first year of study provided that you have the appropriate background (prerequisites, corequisites etc.) but 200-level courses are generally more difficult and demanding than 100- level courses
