The last date to add a Fall Term or multi-term class is September 22.


First-Year Fall Computing Courses

Courses CISC 101 and 121 filled up during the July enrolment period. Students wanting to take CISC 101 should consider taking CISC 110 instead, since the courses overlap significantly and both are equally suitable preparation for CISC 121. The School has opened a second section of CISC 121 in the same timeslot; if you were unable to enrol in July, or are on the waiting list for Section 1, you can select Section 2 now.
 
Waiting Lists 

All single-term Arts and Science classes have been set up with wait lists. Multi-term, full year (A/B) courses cannot be set up with wait lists. The wait list option gives you an opportunity to join a wait list for a class that is full. 
 
A note about using the EDIT function in SOLUS: if you are enrolled in a class but want to change your lab or tutorial and the one you want is full, you can use EDIT to go on the waitlist. BUT.... If you do that, you will lose your existing registration in the class ! If the lab or tutorial you want is full and there is a wait list, SOLUS will drop you from the class and add you to the wait list for both the lecture and the lab/tutorial. Before choosing to EDIT or SWAP, it is a good idea to make sure that the lectures, labs or tutorials are open.
