Instructional videos: UTM | UTSC | UTSG

Before enrolling in courses, check when you will be eligible to enrol by viewing your divisional registrar’s important academic dates, and check your enrolment start time on ACORN. You can plan the courses you want to take using the Timetable builder, and learn if you will be eligible to enrol in a course by checking the “Enrolment Controls” section of a course in the search results area. To plan for your entire degree, check out Degree Explorer.

Once you know which courses you want to take, you can add them to your Enrolment Cart in ACORN so that you can enrol in them without searching for them again on enrolment day. The Enrolment Cart is like adding courses to a shopping cart so that you can save them for later. On enrolment day, you’ll need to enrol in each course individually from your cart.
