Course enrolment begins in mid-July. All Daniels Faculty students are assigned start times; degree students are assigned start times according to year of study and non-degree students are assigned start times as a separate group.
If you have completed...
...fewer than 4.0 Full Course Equivalents (FCE), your year of study is 1.
...between 4.0 and 8.5 FCE, your year of study is 2.
...between 9.0 and 13.5 FCE, your year of study is 3.
...more than 14.0 FCE, your year of study is 4.
You can view your start time on ACORN on the date designated for your year of study, listed above under Important Dates 2016-17 Fall/Winter. On the first day of course enrolment for your year of study, you will not be able to access any services on the student online service until your start time.
ACORN is closed for course enrolment on August 4, August 9, and August 11.
NEW: Course enrolment on August 5 will begin at designated times based on year of study. The times are listed above under Important Dates 2016-17 Fall/Winter.
Registration will occur automatically upon your payment of the minimum installment of your fees (or upon your official deferral of your fees) by August 23. If your payment has not been received or officially deferred by August 23, you will be removed from your courses at any time. A 10 day processing time is in place for bank payments to be received by the University before removing you from courses. Note that reinstatement in courses is not guaranteed as spaces may be filled. If you wish to register after you have been removed, you will be charged a reinstatement fee.
If you do not enrol in courses by the August 23 deadline, your registration status for the session is automatically changed to "Financially Cancelled." If your status is "Financially Cancelled" and you wish to take courses, contact the Office of the Registrar and Student Services for instructions.
Students may take a maximum session load of 6.0 full course equivalents (FCE) across the Fall/Winter academic session. Note that the maximum session load is set at 5.0 FCE until priority is removed for course enrolment. On August 5, priorities are removed and the maximum session load is changed from 5.0 to 6.0 FCE; course enrolment opens on the student online service at 6am.
Students may take a maximum term load of 6 courses (or 3.0 FCE) in each of the Fall (September to December) and the Winter (January to April) terms, unless their academic status is “On Probation.” Students on academic probation may take a maximum term load of 5 courses (or 2.5 FCE) in each of the Fall and Winter terms.
Students should always try to balance their course enrolments across the Fall and the Winter, if possible. If you are enrolled in more than the maximum allowable term load, you will be removed from excess course enrolments on an on-going basis until after the last day to add courses. It is a student’s responsibility to monitor course enrolment and adhere to the maximum term load regulations.
