Fall 2022 - Winter 2023 FAQs

 

Enrolment Questions

Once you have enrolled in your full-time course load for fall/winter, you will be able to print your own confirmation of enrolment letter (for free) from ACORN. We recommend that you contact the company to determine if they will accept that letter. If they won’t, please follow the steps below. You have two options for getting your confirmation of enrolment: remotely or in-person.

Remotely:

If you have an RESP form to be completed: Email the RESP form to us and be sure to also send a completed letter request form (https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/letter-request-forms)  with your personal info and the credit card info for the $8 filled in (you can specify on the request form that you have an RESP form to be completed). We can then complete the form and email it back to you.

If the company does not have a specific form to be completed: complete the Letter Request form from the Forms section of our website (https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/letter-request-forms), specifying the term(s) for which you need confirmation (e.g. Fall 2022/Winter 2023) and then email it to us. We will then email the letter to you.

If you are emailing the request from a non-UofT email address, please also include a close-up picture of yourself holding valid photo i.d. (excluding provincial health card) beside your face (to prove your identity). We do our best to process requests quickly but due to volume we cannot provide a time guarantee.

In-person:

Students can visit our office to have their form completed or submit a letter request form. Don't forget to check our hours of operation before you leave: https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/contact-us. In peak times, it is recommended that you visit earlier in the day as we may need to stop giving out service tickets before our closure time.

You must bring either your student card or valid government photo i.d. (excluding health card). The $8 processing fee can be paid with debit or credit.

This message usually relates to an enrolment restriction on the course. Restrictions can be based on program(s)/year of study/campus etc. and can be temporary or permanent. Please look for any enrolment controls linked under the course code on the Timetable www.utsc.utoronto.ca/timetable, as well as any announcements beside the lecture section.

If you see an 'enrolment blocked' message beside a tutorial or practical, the section likely isn't open. Refer to #9 of this FAQ for details.

At the beginning of the enrolment cycle, students can only add 2.5 credits per session (waitlist and INT courses count towards the total for this calculation). Please refer to the academic dates to determine when the system will allow students to increase to 3.0 credits per session: https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/academic-dates

The tri-campus enrolment date is later in the enrolment cycle. You can find the date for enrolment in courses on other campuses here: https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/academic-dates

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules and instructions re: taking courses on other campuses: https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/courses-other-campuses

Students who wish to re-take a course they have already received credit for (or are excluded from taking due to transfer credits) must add the course via our office. The course will be flagged as an extra credit. This means that you will not receive credit for the course; the grade, while it will appear in your transcript, will not impact your GPA.

If you meet the enrolment controls on the course (if applicable), please contact us from your UofT email address and provide your name, student number, the full nine-character course code from the Timetable (www.utsc.utoronto.ca/timetable) and the lecture section so we can try to enroll you remotely.

If you are contacting us from a non-UofT email address, please also include a close-up picture of yourself holding valid photo i.d. (excluding provincial health card) beside your face (to prove your identity).

 

ACORN allows students to waitlist a maximum 1.0 credit per semester. If you need to be put on another waitlist – and it will not put your total enrolments in the term above the allowable credit maximum – you can request that we put you on additional waitlists. Please contact us from your UofT email address and provide your name, student number, the full nine-character course code from the Timetable (www.utsc.utoronto.ca/timetable) and the lecture section so we can try to put you on the waitlist.

If you are contacting us from a non-UofT email address, please also include a close-up picture of yourself holding valid photo i.d. (excluding provincial health card) beside your face (to prove your identity).

Our office does not determine which courses can be offered or the size of those classes; those decisions are made at the departmental level. In the early days of the enrolment cycle, we ask that waitlisted students be patient while the departments review the enrolment numbers. There is still a lot of time for them to make adjustments to try and accommodate the demand.

If you are unable to secure a spot in a required course closer to the start of term, please discuss your situation with the relevant departmental contact person (course instructor/program supervisor/program advisor, depending on the course).

Email addresses for staff/faculty can be found in the People Directory in the Quick Links drop down menu at the top of www.utsc.utoronto.ca

Year 2 (4.0 credits or more) and higher students must be enrolled in an appropriate combination of ACTIVE programs, otherwise their access to all course enrolment is blocked (https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/unlimited-and-limited-programs )

Please add an appropriate combination of programs from the UNLIMITED category so that your general access to enrolment is not blocked. You can later remove them if you apply to, get invited to, and want to accept an offer from your desired limited program(s).

 

Please note that departments may put enrolment controls on their courses so please check the Timetable (https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/timetable) to find out whether the course(s) you want to add will be open to you.

Many departments do not open all practicals/tutorials right away; they want to ensure that sufficient demand exists to minimize cancellation of sections with low enrolment. As long as you are in the lecture, you should be accommodated in a practical/tutorial by the department. Periodically check ACORN and the Timetable (www.utsc.utoronto.ca/timetable) for updates on newly opened sections or increase in section capacity.

If you are still unsuccessful closer to the start of classes, please contact the relevant departmental contact person (course instructor/program supervisor/advisor/lab coordinator, depending on the course) to see if they can accommodate you into the tutorial/practical that works for you. If so, they will contact their departmental office to make the change on your account.

Fees/payment FAQ

Some student societies will refund the health and dental plan and select other fees.  Refund application deadlines are set by the society.

Please contact the relevant office(s) listed here: https://studentaccount.utoronto.ca/contact-us/

Upper year (4.0 credits or more) BBA and CSC (Major/Specialist) students will see the flat program fee automatically loaded into their invoices for each term. This is normal. If you plan to take 2022 Fall and/or 2023 Winter off, please email us (askro.utsc@utoronto.ca) your name, student number, and the term(s) that you plan to take off, so that we can remove it (and the fees) from ACORN.

If you are in fewer than 2.0 credits in the term, you can request to change to the program per course rate via eService. Details and deadlines are here: https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/program-fees. These adjustments take time so if the payment deadline is approaching and the update hasn’t happened, you can view the fees schedules on the Student Accounts website (https://studentaccount.utoronto.ca/) to determine what your fees will change to based on your program and course load, so you know how much to pay (note: any fees owing from a prior term must be paid in full as well).

Note: eService usually pulls updates from ACORN overnight so you will not be able to add your courses and request the adjustment in the same day; wait 24-48 hours before trying to submit your fee adjustment request on eService.

If all of your courses are waitlisted and/or interim approval status, there will be no Fall 2022/Winter 2023 tuition charges on your invoice yet. There may be no required amount to register displayed. However, you still have to make a payment in order to change the registration status to Registered.

Steps to Follow

  1. Pay $311 plus any outstanding balance from a previous session (if applicable).
  2. Email the proof of payment to askro.utsc@utoronto.ca. Subject Line: POP for INT/WL courses – Your full name and Student Number. Your payment will not trigger registration and we will need to manually register you for the session.
  3. Allow a few days for processing your request. Monitor your registration status on your ACORN dashboard. Once it has changed to Registered, your spot in the waitlisted or interim approval course(s) will be saved.
  4. Once registered, monitor your status in the course(s) to ensure you have been approved to attend.

If you do not get into the course(s) and will not be taking any other courses you are eligible for a refund of your payment.

Most co-op students will see co-op fees automatically loaded into the next term(s). This is normal. The records office manually reviews all co-op accounts, adjusting if required.

Co-op fees are payable if you will be registered in courses and/or on a work term. If you plan to take 2022 Fall and/or 2023 Winter off, please email us (askro.utsc@utoronto.ca) your name, student number, and the term(s) that you plan to take off, so that we can remove it (and the fees) from ACORN. You should discuss your planned absence with the co-op office as resequencing may be required.

Upper year (4.0 credits or more) BBA/CSC co-op students: if you plan to only be on a work term, you can request to change to the program per course rate via eService. Details and deadlines are here: https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/program-fees.

August 16 is the Fall 2022 recommended deadline for students to make the listed minimum payment in their invoice to register. https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/fall-2022-winter-2023-financial-d...

Canadian payments usually take 3-5 business days to process. International payments can vary but typically take longer than Canadian payments. We don’t need to RECEIVE your payment by August 16; that is the recommended deadline for students to MAKE their payment so that their status is updated to ‘registered’ before the course cancellation date. Per the financial dates/deadlines on our website, students with an “invited” status will be withdrawn from classes for non-payment/deferral of fees on August 30.

Once your status is “registered”, you have until the end of September to clear any new/remaining Fall fees before monthly service charges are added.

If you need your OSAP funds to make payment, you will need to submit a fee deferral request via ACORN.  Students were advised to apply for OSAP by June 30th.  https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/fall-2022-winter-2023-financial-dates-0

Late applicants may still try to apply for a fee deferral within the deferral application period, but if you applied too late, you will likely have to make a payment to register. If your deferral application was not successful, you can email us your name, student number, and explanation to askro.utsc@utoronto.ca so we can review your options.

Students must have no past due fees when requesting a deferral (check your invoice in ACORN: do you have a “balance brought forward” listed near the top of your invoice? If so, that must be paid before a deferral can be considered.)

ACORN should immediately identify if the deferral was successful (your registration status will change to ‘registered’, not ‘invited’).

An unsuccessful fee deferral request is usually due to applying too late for OSAP and/or having past due fees owing from a prior term.

Please email us your name and student number to askro.utsc@utoronto.ca so we can review your situation.

 

If you need your government funds to make payment, you will need to submit a fee deferral request via ACORN. Please follow the steps listed here: https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/deferring-your-fees

ACORN should immediately identify if the deferral was successful (your registration status will be ‘registered’, instead of ‘invited’).

UofT scholarships are deposited into ACORN in late Sept/early October.

If your scholarship amount does not cover the listed minimum payment in your invoice, please pay the difference (what your scholarship will not cover of your minimum payment) by the recommended payment deadline of August 16th.

If your scholarship covers the listed minimum payment in your invoice, you can request a scholarship fee deferral. Please email a completed fee deferral form (https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/fee-deferral) to awards.utsc@utoronto.ca within the fee deferral application period: https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/fall-2022-winter-2023-financial-d...

You are responsible for paying the portion of your fees not covered by the relevant waiver by the relevant deadlines. https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/fall-2022-winter-2023-financial-d...
