You will need the Faculty of Arts and Science Calendar and Registration Instructions & Timetable to help you choose your courses.  These are essential in order to course-select, check on regulations and create your course timetable.  They contain important information that you will need in order to enroll in courses and complete your registration.

The Calendar and Registration Instructions & Timetable are available online from the Faculty of Arts and Science website.  Please pay particular attention to the section titled Guide to Program & Course Descriptions in the Calendar and Steps 3 through 5 of the Registration Instructions.

Be sure to check the Faculty of Arts and Science website for any subsequent changes to the Calendar and Registration Instructions & Timetable.  These corrections and changes are posted regularly throughout the summer.  Current timetable information is essential for successful course selection.

Refer to the course selection instructions in the Registration Instructions (Steps 3 through 5) before selecting and enrolling in your courses.  Since some courses and sections may become full early, we encourage you to prepare in advance and to enroll promptly.  Once you decide which courses to take by referring to the Calendar, you can use the timetable information in the Registration Instructions & Timetable to construct your schedule.

Course enrolment is done online thorough ACORN (  To access ACORN you normally first need to activate your UTORid by obtaining your student TCard.  Don’t worry, if you can’t get your TCard immediately.  You can still activate your UTORid if you’ve enabled your UofT JOINid (

Enrolment will begin on July 26 for first year students. Faculty of Arts and Science students have pre-assigned start times on their enrollment start date. Beginning July 20, these start times will be posted on ACORN; you should check and make a note of yours.  If you were admitted as an upper-year student (e.g. with 4.0 or more transfer credits), please check the Registration Instructions (Step 4) for enrollment start date information.

We recommend that you attend one of our Course Selection Information Sessions in the months of June and July.  If you will not be in Toronto during this period we shall do our best to advise you by telephone (416 978-2460) or e-mail (  You can also consult our online Course Selection Tutorial.

In addition to the Calendar and the Registration Instructions & Timetable, the New College Registrar’s Office has published a New Student’s Guide designed to assist newly admitted students with course selection.
