First Year Seminars [CCR199H1/Y1, LTE199H1/Y1, PMU199H1/Y1, SII199H1/Y1, TBB199H1/Y1 and XBC199Y1]

The following timetable information is the most current information available.

First-Year Seminar courses are offered as full-credit courses or as half-credit courses. Each 199Y1 or 199H1 seminar has a generic designator, which corresponds to the Breadth Category the course fulfils:

CCR - Creative and Cultural Representation
TBB - Thought, Belief and Behaviour
SII - Society and Its Institutions
LTE - Living things and Their Environment
PMU - Physical and Mathematical Universes
XBC - Cross Breadth Category - Y course seminar that counts as half in each of two breadth categories

These courses do not have waitlist. Each meeting section is a different course with a few exceptions where two sections of the same course are offered. Refer to the Faculty of Arts and Science website, for further information and full descriptions of the seminar courses.

First-Year seminar courses are restricted to first year degree students newly admitted to the first year in the Faculty of Arts and Science, St. George campus. Students admitted from other institutions or faculties with fewer than four transfer credits are also eligible to enrol in these courses.

Some first-year seminar courses have college membership as an enrolment control. During the priority period, July 30 to August 5 college sections of Innis, New, St. Michael's, Trinity, University, Victoria and Woodsworth give students associated with that college priority. On August 7, starting at 6:00 a.m., first year students from any college may enrol into these college section courses pending availability of space. For example, CCR199H1 section L0021, title, gives priority to students accepted into University College from July 30 to August 5. On August 7, students from any of the other St. George campus colleges may try to enrol. You will not be permitted to add the course if you do not satisfy the college membership during the priority period. If you "view timetable/spaces" on ROSI for the First-Year seminars, ROSI will indicate "You do not fit any enrolment control". For these sections, try on August 7.

On July 30 only, the first day of enrolment for 1st year students, a certain number of spaces is allocated to each admission stream. When you "view timetable/spaces" for the first-year seminar courses, ROSI will indicate your enrolment category is full/enrolment blocked; however, there may be spaces still remaining in the course. Try to enrol on July 31 at 6:00 a.m., when any remaining spaces will be open to students in any admission stream.

You may enrol in only ONE 199Y or TWO 199H1 courses for your degree . Students are only permitted to enrol in 1 full course equivalent (FCE) from the first-year seminar courses. Students who enrol in more than one 199Y1, two 199H1 or a combination of 199Y1 and 199H1 will be removed from the additional one(s) beyond 1 FCE. You may be removed from the additional first-year seminar course(s) without consultation as to which one(s) will be removed. The removal may occur at any time it is discovered.
If you want to enrol in 199H1 courses with the same section code (e.g. two F or two S sections) from the same designators, ROSI will not permit you to enrol in both. You should contact Ms. Deborah Shaw, 416-978-0359,, immediately after enrolling in one of the 199H1 courses on ROSI, to be enrolled in the second 199H1. The second 199H1 will be added under the course number, 198H1. NOTE: After being enrolled in the 198H1 course, if you want cancel the course, you need to contact Ms. Shaw.
