I have an existing conflict in my Winter term timetable. What should I do?

If you have an existing conflict in your Winter term timetable you should:

  1. If the conflicting class is an option or elective course, you could simply swap it for a different class that meets your degree requirements to resolve the conflict.
  2. If the conflicting classes are both needed and you can’t find anything else appropriate to swap, consult with both departments offering those departments to determine if the timetable listing in SOLUS is flexible or not. If it is flexible and the classes do not present a true conflict you can choose to stay registered in those courses with the existing conflict on your timetable. We will not force you to drop a conflicting class and you will not be required to provide any proof from the department. It will be your responsibility to manage your schedule accordingly and if you find that there is some overlap in classes and you are not able to manage your responsibilities, we advise you to consider swapping classes during the add-drop period or dropping classes by the winter term drop deadline.
  3. Drop one of the classes that is in conflict and consider making up the dropped units by taking a spring or summer class instead.

 

I want to make changes to my schedule that create timetable conflict – what should I do?

  1. Determine if this conflict is necessary – are there any other courses available that you could take instead? Can one course be postponed to spring or summer term instead? If you are not sure, contact the Faculty Office at 613-533-2470 or email asc.registration@queensu.ca (first year students, email passhelp@queensu.ca.) 
  2. If you would like to proceed with registering in classes that present a conflict in your timetable, you will need to supply confirmation from both instructors/departments that either the timetable is flexible and doesn’t present a true conflict OR that despite the fact that both courses are running simultaneously, you have presented a realistic plan for how you will manage both courses and both instructors or departments endorse your plan. You must send an email to asc.registration@queensu.ca with your name, student number, a list of both courses (course codes, lecture/tutorial and/or lab sections as well) you have been approved to register in along with the corresponding instructor/department approvals. Please title your email “Timetable Conflict Approvals” for a speedier response.

When does Winter term registration start?

Winter and Summer term registration for 4th year students will begin on Monday, November 9 at 8:00 am.

Winter and Summer term registration for all other A&S students will begin on Thursday, November 12 at 8:00 am.

I’m a 4th year student. Do I need to make changes immediately?

All 4th year students have until 12 November to make changes to their winter timetable, and register for summer courses. In addition, many courses have seats reserved for those students who may require it. These restrictions will remain in effect until 30 November, at which time they’ll be removed.

How many Winter term courses am I allowed to take?

Students can add up to 18.0 units in courses per term.

I can see that the course has seats, but when I add it I receive a message that I can’t enrol because it’s not available for my Program/Plan. Why?

We have reserved seats in many courses for those students who need them to graduate, or progress their Plan. These seats remain reserved until 30 November 2020; after which, they’ll become available to all students who meet the prerequisite for the course(s). 

Do I have to take a full course load in Winter term?

If you find 5 classes per term too heavy, we encourage you to consider taking a lighter load. Check out our “To Drop or Not To Drop” webinar for more information: https://www.queensu.ca/artsci/undergrad-students/pass-academic-advising 

How long will I have to add Winter term classes?

The last day to add a Winter term class is January 22, 2021.

If I drop a winter term class, will I still receive a tuition refund?

Yes. You have until January 22 to drop a class and receive a full tuition refund.

When is the last day to drop a Winter term or full year class?

The drop deadline for full year and Winter term courses is Friday, March 5.

How will I know if a winter course will be on campus?

There are a few courses that have been approved to take place on campus this winter. These are core courses for some students requiring access to specialized spaces and equipment. You’ll know if you’re in one of these classes because you’ll be notified by the department (or supervisor, if it’s an independent study/thesis course) or by the presence of a room assignment on SOLUS for labs. The department will be contacting you directly with further details about these courses, including arrangements should you wish not to return to campus in the winter term.

As all domestic students returning to Kingston in January 2021 must limit contact with others for the first 14 days upon arrival, and international students arriving in Kingston from international destinations must additionally follow provincial quarantine requirements, all classes that will be delivered on campus will be delivered remotely until January 18. Students are asked to arrive in Kingston by January 4, to allow for a 14-day period. On-campus classes that are scheduled to begin in classrooms on January 11 will still commence on that date, but they will be delivered remotely for the first week. Unlocking of campus buildings for classes to be offered in person will begin on January 18.

When does Summer term registration start?

Summer term registration will start at the same time as winter term registration. See above.

Do I have to take Summer classes this year too?

No. Summer classes are optional.

When does Summer term start?

Summer term classes are offered in 3 different sessions: May to mid-June (6 weeks), May to end of July (12 weeks) and July to mid-August (6 weeks). Make careful note of the session and the unit weight of the course listed in SOLUS before registering. 6 week classes are condensed – you will be covering 12 weeks of material in 6 weeks so expect the pace to be twice as fast as usual. Some of the May-July classes are 6.0 units so they are condensed as well, others are 3.0 unit classes that will follow the usual pace.

How many Summer courses am I allowed to take?

You are allowed to take as many units are you are usually allowed to take in a regular term but we recommend that you take no more than 2 courses in total over the summer. Be especially careful with courses than run in condensed sessions to make sure you can keep up with the fast pace.   

Will Summer classes be remote, online or in-person?

We plan to offer our usual catalog of online courses through Arts and Science Online https://www.queensu.ca/artsci_online/coursesduring the Summer session (May-June, May-July and July-August). In addition we will be offering a number of Summer courses remotely. A very small number of Summer courses are being tentatively planned for on campus.

How long do I have to add Summer term classes?

We encourage you to add Summer term classes as soon as you can, as we expect spaces to fill early. The last day to add a May-June and May-July class is May 14, 2021.

I’m in 4th year and would like to take a Summer course, can I still graduate with my class?

Students who take their final course(s) to graduate in May/June will be able to have their degree conferred in July. This means your transcript will show that you’re a graduate of Queen’s University, and so can satisfy any conditional admission requirements for graduate or professional programs, or for employment purposes.

What is the difference between “Remote” and “Online”?

Remote courses are those typically offered on-campus. Because we had to move to remote learning this year, we are calling these classes “remote” and they can be found in SOLUS through Class Search, using “Undergraduate Career”. Online classes are the courses offered through the Arts and Science Online catalog. They have always been offered online and can be found in SOLUS through Class Search using “Undergraduate Online Career.” The sections will be listed as 700-ONL. Remote and Online courses will look the same on your transcript.    

I can’t find the course I want to add in SOLUS. Where is it?

This year we are offering courses “remotely” and “online”. Remote courses are those typically offered on-campus and they can be found in SOLUS through Class Search, using “Undergraduate Career”. Online classes are those offered through Arts and Science Online and they can be found in SOLUS through Class Search using “Undergraduate Online Career.” The sections will be listed as 700-ONL.    

I’m happy with the Winter term classes I already added and none of them are conflicting in my timetable. Do I have to do anything?

No. If you have added all the classes you need for Winter term and your schedule is conflict-free you don’t need to take any further action.

I’m still on a waitlist for a Winter term class. When will I find out if I have been added or not?

The waitlist engine will resume running on November 6 and continue until the last day to add a Winter term class on January 22.

I discovered that I am in a timetable conflict. Can I leave it as-is or will I be dropped from my classes?

If you are in timetable conflict, please read the options and follow the instructions listed above. We will not remove a student from a course even if there is a timetable conflict.

I want to add a class but it conflicts in my timetable. Can I add it anyway?

If you wish to add a class that creates a timetable conflict, please read the options and follow the instructions listed above.  

Are the class times listed in the timetable accurate? Are they all going to run synchronously for the entire block listed? 

The times listed in your timetable have been approved by your instructor and the Department; however, some may have more flexibility than we can communicate in SOLUS. We advise you to check the Departmental websites for any specific information on classes and scheduling for winter term or email them directly to ask.

If the Department confirms that the times listed in the timetable are optional or flexible and doesn’t present a true conflict, can I stay enrolled in the class?

Yes. If you have confirmed this information you can stay registered in your timetable conflict. You won’t be required to do anything further.

What are the risks of staying enrolled in two classes that run at the same time?

If you choose to remain in a true timetable conflict, you will have to make the difficult decision of deciding which class to attend each week and plan how you will stay caught up in both. By missing classes you can potentially miss out on critical communications about assignments and deadlines, you can miss essential course material and you can end up with tests and exams scheduled on the same day at the same time (this does NOT qualify as an exam conflict or serve as grounds for appeal if you made the choice to remain in a timetable conflict.) This can lead to poor grades and extra stress.

I dropped the class that caused the conflict in my timetable. Do I have to add another class to replace it?

Not necessarily. If you would prefer to take a lighter course load for winter term you can do so (see our webinar re: dropping classes for more information and options on how to catch up later)

Can I remain in a timetable conflict for now and see how it goes over the first couple weeks of Winter term?

We advise you to follow the options and instructions listed above now to avoid running into problems or having to drop classes later in the term.

How do I contact the course instructor or Department?

You can find the email address for your instructors and the Undergraduate Staff through the Departmental websites (search for Department websites via www.queensu.ca)

How do I know which other courses will work in my timetable instead?

We will post an updated list of courses that still have space daily on the Arts and Science website (note that these numbers change in real time so we can’t promise those spaces will remain open – this is just a tool to help guide your search)

Which other courses will work toward my degree plan requirements?

To find a list of what specific courses you need to graduate and what you can choose from, run your academic requirements report in SOLUS. Need help interpreting it? https://www.queensu.ca/artsci/undergrad-students/academic-requirements-r...

All of the classes I need to take this year are full. What should I do?

Call the Faculty Office at 613-533-2470 and we can put you in touch with an academic advisor to assist you with course mapping and academic planning. Or you can email your Department directly for advice.

All single-term Arts and Science classes will be 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. 

By adding yourself to a class wait list, you are acknowledging that you may be auto-enrolled and will therefore be responsible for the additional tuition and for dropping the class if you no longer wish to take it.

How does the wait list work?

Once a class is closed (full), students may choose to join the wait list for the class.  When searching for classes in SOLUS, you must deselect the box labelled:  “Show Open Classes Only”.  If the class is open, you will see a green circle.  If the class is full and there is space available on the wait list, you will see an orange triangle.  If the class is full and all spaces on the wait list are full, you will see a blue square.

When you choose to join a wait list you will be informed of your position on the wait list.  Once a wait list has been initiated, the class will remain closed until the auto-enrol process is run.  The auto-enrol process will be run every hour and will check for space in classes that have wait lists.  If there is space in the class, the next person on the wait list will be enrolled in the class. 

NOTE:  A student’s position on the wait list will not change unless a student with a lower wait list number is auto-enrolled in the course or removes him/herself from the wait list.  Therefore one student cannot normally move ahead of another student on the wait list.

If a space opens in the class I am wait listed for, how am I moved from the wait list into the class?

Students are auto-enrolled from the wait list into the class by their priority ranking in the wait list.  For example, if a class is full and 3 students drop the class, students in wait list positions numbers 1, 2 and 3 will be auto-enrolled from the wait list if there are no factors preventing their enrolment.  The student who was previously ranked number 4 will then be ranked number 1, and will be the next student auto-enrolled if another enrolled student drops the class.  This process will continue until the wait list is empty or the deadline to add a class has occurred.

How do wait lists work when there are seats reserved for students in particular programs/plans?

When seats are reserved in a particular class, it means that the department wants to ensure that the students who require that class get priority.  You may still wait list for the class, but priority will be given to the students who meet the reserve up until the reserve expires.

Do online classes have wait lists?

Yes!  All single-term online classes have been set up with wait lists.  If the class you are trying to enrol in is full, you can choose to join the wait list.  Keep in mind, though, that we do hold some spaces for Distance career students so they may get priority up until the first day of class.

 I see that there is a space available in the class, but the class is still showing as closed.  Why?

When there are students on a wait list for a class, that class will remain closed until all of the students have been moved from the wait list into the class.  In other words, when there are students on the wait list, another student cannot bypass the wait list and enrol in the class if he/she sees that a space has become available.

How many spots are there on the wait list?

10% of the class capacity has been set aside for wait list spots.  So, if the maximum capacity in the class is 100, there will be 10 wait list spots available. 

Can I go on a wait list for a class that meets at the same time as another class that I am enrolled in?

SOLUS will allow you to go on a wait list for a class that is in conflict with an enrolled class, but you will never be enrolled into the class even if space opens up.  SOLUS will not enroll you in a conflict.  If your plan is to drop the conflicting class in place of the wait listed class, be sure to use the “SWAP” function when you add yourself to the wait list for the desired class.  By using the swap function, SOLUS will add you to the wait listed course when a space becomes available and also drop you from the class you choose to swap.

I want to switch my lab/tutorial for a class I am enrolled in but the lab/tutorial is full.  Can I wait list for the one I want?

If you are enrolled in a class and use the EDIT function to switch to a section where the waitlist is active, you will LOSE YOUR SPACE 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, tutorials are open.

How do I know where I am on the wait list?

When you choose to be added to a wait list you will be informed of your position on the wait list.  You can check your position on the list at any time in SOLUS.  If you decide that you no longer want to be wait listed for the course, you can remove yourself from the wait list in SOLUS.

What are my chances of getting into the wait listed class?

That will depend on your position on the wait list and whether or not students enrolled in the class decide to drop the class.

How will I know if I have been enrolled in the class I wait listed for?

Once you are successfully enrolled into the class, you will receive an email sent to your @queensu.ca email account. 

If I don’t get in the class, will I just stay on the wait list forever?

Class wait lists will be purged following the last date to add a class in the term in which the course is offered.

What would prevent me from getting on a wait list?

  • You are trying to add yourself to a wait list before the start of your enrollment appointment time.
  • You have exceeded the maximum number of units allowed for the term.
  • You are trying to exceed the maximum number of wait list units.
  • You do not meet the course requisites.
  • There are no more wait list seats available for the course.
  • You have a hold on your record that blocks enrolment.

I am number one on the wait list and a spot opened up in the class but I didn’t get in.  How come?

If any of the following scenarios have changed since you were added to the wait list, you will not be auto-enrolled in the class even though a space is now available:

  • You added another class that puts you over the maximum number of units allowed for the term.
  • You dropped a class that was a pre- or corequisite for the wait listed class.
  • The wait listed class will cause a timetable conflict with another class in which you are enrolled.
  • A hold that blocks enrolment has been added to your record since you were added to the wait list for the class.

Also, keep in mind that all components of the course must be open in order for you to be enrolled.  If your wait listed class has a lecture and a lab, both of these components must be open in order for you to be enrolled from the wait list.

If none of the items above applies to you, please contact the Faculty Office for assistance.

TIPS:

  • You should enrol in open classes prior to requesting to be added to a wait listed class.
  • If you want to drop a class that you are enrolled in if you are able to be auto-enrolled from the wait list for another class, be sure to use the SWAP function in SOLUS to add yourself to the wait list.
  • You should check your enrolment regularly to see if you have been added to the wait listed class.  If you see that other students have been added ahead of you, you will know that there is a problem with your enrolment that is causing the auto-enrol to fail (see things to check above).
  • If you no longer wish to be on the wait list you must remove your request in SOLUS.
  • Once a class wait list has been initiated, no one other than the students on the wait list will be allowed to enrol in the class.  If spaces become available in the class and the wait list is also empty then the class will become open again.
  • Your position on the wait list will change only if other students ahead of you become auto-enrolled or remove themselves from the wait list.

How many classes can I be on a wait list for?

During the summer course regisration period, full-time students may wait list in a maximum of 4.5 units per term.  During this time period wait listed courses are included in your maximum term load of 16.5 units per term.   Part-time students may wait list for a maximum of 4.5 units per term.  During this time period wait listed courses are included in your maximum term load of 9.0 units per term.

During the Open Enrolment period, full-time students may wait list for a maximum of 6.0 units per term.   During this time period, wait listed courses are included in your maximum term load of 18.0 units per term.

TIP!  If you wish to enrol in the maximum units per term but also want to be on a wait list for another class, you must use the SWAP feature when joining a wait list, indicating which class you would like to be dropped if you are auto-enrolled from the wait list.  If you simply ADD the wait listed class you will never come off the wait list because that would exceed your term limit.

Are you trying to register for an online course, but getting an error saying that the seats are “reserved for students in other programs”?

If so, that is because all of the remaining seats in these courses are being held for students enrolled in a Distance Career.  This restriction will be removed on the first day of the applicable term and you may enrol in these courses at that time provided there is still space available.

There is no waitlist option for online courses, so be sure to check back in SOLUS.  If a space becomes available between now and the last day to add classes, you can add it to your schedule.

The Academic Advisement Report (AAR) is designed to give you advice on what courses you will need to complete your degree, as well as warn you if you have broken any of the various rules that govern which courses may be used in a particular degree program. While the AAR is a useful guide, the ultimate authority on all academic requirements in the Faculty of Arts and Science is the Arts and Science Calendar; if there is a discrepancy, the online Calendar requirements take precedence. An AAR may be run through SOLUS, and it is highly recommended that all upper year students run a report at least once a year, before course selection. You should also run a report before applying to graduate. The AAR has been designed to closely parallel the layout of the Plan requirements section of the Calendar, so it may be useful to review these requirements before you run your AAR.

HINT: Before running your AAR, be sure to remove all courses from your shopping cart and planner. Otherwise, you may get false results.

Unit Counts (Program Requirements)

All Degree Programs in Arts and Science require a certain number of units in order to complete the degree. These include both electives and the specific requirements of the Plan(s) in which you are registered. The section labeled Unit Counts does just that: it counts all the units successfully completed towards your degree. Once you have completed enough units, you have satisfied one of the requirements of your Degree Program. Note that in addition to a sufficient number of courses, you must also maintain a minimum cumulative GPA to graduate: 1.60 for General degrees, and 1.90 for Honours Degrees. The cumulative GPA may be determined by reviewing your academic record on SOLUS.

Plan Requirements

All students are registered in a Plan, which is defined as a set of courses focusing on a particular subject. First year students are registered in a Plan known as ASC1 with no specific course requirements. All other students are registered in one or more Plans which have specific, sometimes quite complex, academic requirements.

To review your Plan requirements, first look up your Plan in the Arts and Science Academic Calendar. You will see that the Plan requirements in the Calendar are laid out in the same format as within the Academic Advisement Report.

The Academic Advisement Report's most important job is to help you make sense of these requirements, and to plan your course selection accordingly. The following links explain the various components of the Plan requirements.

Plan GPA


The Plan GPA is the GPA on all courses used to fulfill the Plan requirements. As courses are used to fill in the requirements, the Plan GPA is updated. Unlike the cumulative GPA, failures are not included in the Plan GPA since a failed course cannot be used to fulfill a Plan requirement. A minimum Plan GPA of 1.90 is required for Specialization, Major and Medial Plans. A minimum Plan GPA of 1.60 is required for Minor and General Plans. If the GPA on the courses being used to fulfill Plan requirements fall below these minimum values, you will not be able to graduate.

Core Courses

Core courses are those for which there is little or no choice in what must be taken. Core requirements are usually listed by increasing year level, though in a few Plans requirements are grouped by a certain theme or subject. When planning courses, students should try to select all those core courses required at a particular year level.

Options Courses

Option courses are those for which the student has a fairly free choice from a broad range of courses. For example, any HIST course at the 300-level. Option courses are usually listed by increasing year level, or grouped by a particular theme or subject. Students usually have some flexibility when choosing their options – they can skip ahead to a higher year level (assuming they hold the right prerequisites!) or delay taking a lower year level option to later years. Nonetheless, students should review their option requirements closely and plan their course selections accordingly. Please note, first year students are given priority for first year courses.

In some Plans, there are Option Lists: sets of options, only one of which is required in order to complete the Plan. In the Advisor, all possible Option Lists are indicated by title. If a course fulfills the requirements of more than one Option List, it will appear in both. Once all the requirements of one Option List are fulfilled, all the remaining Option Lists disappear from the Advisement Report.

Supporting Courses

Supporting courses are those in a subject different from that of the Plan but which are required prerequisites for upper year courses.; An example would be a first year calculus course in a Physics Plan. Supporting courses appear in only some Plans – usually those in the Sciences, and in Economics. Supporting courses are usually at the 100-level and are often taken in a student’s first year. Supporting courses in one Plan which appear in the Core or Options portion of a second Plan in which a student is registered will count towards both requirements. Thus, if you are in a Major-Minor Plan combination, you may find that some supporting course requirements listed in the calendar have been removed from your Advisement Report.

Course Lists

The Option requirements in many Plans contain lists of courses that are too long to write out in full on the Advisement Report. Instead, these Course Lists are written out in short form, consisting of the Department code followed by a description.For example, HIST_Canadian is a list of all courses that satisfy the Canadian History requirements of a History Plan. The detailed Course List is published in the Arts and Science Academic Calendar.

Warnings

A WARNING will appear if a student breaks a rule at the Program or Plan level. There are several different types of warnings, but all of them mean that some of the courses that the Academic Advisement Report is counting towards your Program and/or Plan requirements are invalid. This means that you will need to investigate your Program and Plan carefully to identify the invalid courses and choose a different course(s) to replace them; otherwise, you will not be able to graduate. You may also wish to seek academic advice from your department or Student Services.

There are four types of Warnings:
Exclusions

An exclusion is a set of two or more courses where both may not count towards the requirements of your degree. Students are not normally permitted to register in a course that excludes one that they currently hold, so this warning should not occur that often. However, under certain circumstances departments may authorize an over-ride of an exclusion and allow the student to register, on the understanding that both courses are not allowed to count. This can occur in cases where the student has changed Plans and needs the excluded course as a prerequisite.

If an exclusion warning appears, first check the course(s) that are excluded. Usually, the exclusion appears as “No more than 3.0 [or 6.0] units from [List of courses]”. The extra courses are still being counted in the Program unit count extra electives must be taken to make up the deficiency. If both excluded courses also appear in the Plan requirements, you will have to use other courses to meet that requirement.

You may also wish to seek academic advice from your department or Student Services.

Maximum Limits Exceeded (Programs)

This sort of warning does not usually occur unless a student transferred from another Faculty or School to Arts and Science, or holds a large number of transfer credits from other institutions (TR on the transcript).

This warning applies to students who have completed more courses of a specified type than are permitted in their Arts and Science program. Some of the maximums set are: 24.0 units in COMM; 24.0 units in ARTF (except for BFA students); and varying numbers of courses with TR grades (transfer credit), depending on the Program. See Academic Regulation 16 for specifics regarding transfer credits. Although the warning draws attention to the fact that the maximum has been surpassed, it does not exclude the extra courses from being used to satisfy the total unit count. Since the extra courses will still be counted in your Program unit count it is your responsibility to review your record and take extra electives to make up the deficiency.You may also wish to seek academic advice from your department or Student Services.

Note that this warning appears even if you have already completed additional courses to make up the deficiency. In this case, if you identify which of the courses in excess of the maximum you do not intend to use in your program they can be excluded by student exception and the warning can be removed.

Maximum Limits Exceeded (Plans)

The Option Requirements of many Plans in Arts and Science allow you to substitute courses from outside the discipline. For example, the Department of History allows you to use certain CLST (Classical Studies) courses as substitutions for their upper-year History options. These options usually appear on a Course List. However, only a limited number of substitutions are usually allowed. If you receive this warning, it means you’ve exceeded this limit.

The courses listed in the warning may still be used towards the elective component (total unit count) of your degree, but you will have to choose one or more further courses within the discipline to use towards your Plan requirements. You may also wish to seek academic advice from your department.

Note that this warning appears even if you have already completed courses such that no more than the maximum will be used in your Plan. If you identify which of the courses in excess of the maximum you intend to use as electives only they can be excluded from the Plan by student exception and the warning can be removed.

Other Requirements Not Met

Some Plans contain secondary requirements that are shared with the Core, Option and Supporting courses. Such a requirement appears under "Part 6. Notes" in the Plans portion of the Arts and Science Academic Calendar. For example, the History Major Plan requires the student to take 6.0 units from a course in Canadian History as one of their Core or Supporting courses. Similarly, a few Programs also have minimum requirements. For example, the BSc and BCmp Programs require that 48.0 of the 90.0 total unit count be chosen from courses in the Sciences or Mathematics.

Once the Other Requirements are fulfilled, this message will disappear from the Advising Report and the student need not be further concerned with it.

To plan or not to plan, that is the question.

The answer is: NOT TO PLAN! When preparing for registration in SOLUS, you should be using your Shopping Cart, not your Planner. The planner database shows every course that has ever been offered at Queen's, and many of these courses are now obsolete; may have a different course code and may not even be offered in 2018-19!  This can be very confusing if you're trying to search for a class on SOLUS. The shopping cart, on the other hand, allows you to add classes that have been confirmed for the 2018-2019 academic year.

So next time you login to SOLUS, click on that big green Search for Classes button and choose classes to add to your Shopping Cart. Once you've filled your shopping cart, you just need to log back in when your enrolment appointment opens up and click enroll.

Happy enrollment!

If you're adding a full-year course to your Shopping Cart, you've probably noticed that the first part of the course, the "A" portion, is listed as having no units, while the "B" portion in the Winter term has 6.0 units. This is because you will not get credit for the course until you have completed the entirety of the course. So not to worry if you see zero units in the Fall term; you'll be given full credit for the course once you complete it in the Winter term.

When adding the B portion of a full-year course to your Winter Shopping Cart, make sure that the section numbers correspond to the section numbers you added to your Fall Shopping Cart (i.e. if you put CHEM 112A-002 in the Fall, you should have CHEM 112B-002 in the Winter. SOLUS will not allow you to mix and match sections when you enrol). If you are a full-year student, you should be aiming for 30.0 units for the year (5 courses each term).

In order to encourage students to explore subject matter outside their program of study and to promote interdisciplinary study, all upper-year Arts and Science students will be permitted to designate up to 6.0 units of degree-credit courses for pass/fail grading, thereby minimizing any risk to the students’ GPA.  Such courses designated for pass/fail grading will be referred to as Personal Interest Credits (PICs).
