Enrolment Information

Newly admitted students can access information about enrolment dates, deadlines and procedures on the Faculty’s First Year Student webpage http://uoft.me/KPEFirstYear.

Health Requirements
Prior to registration, BKin students are advised to check with their family doctor to ensure that they are adequately immunized and medically able to participate in vigorous physical activity. Students who require special accommodations are required to provide current medical documentation.

Students are advised to fill out the Get Active Questionnaire (https://csep.ca/2021/01/20/pre-screening-for-physical-activity/) to ensure they are ready and able to participate in vigorous physical activity. A reference document accompanying the questionnaire can be found on the same page. 

Returning students will be notified of their academic status at the end of each academic year, and provided with instructions regarding registration for the next academic year.

About Courses 
A course in an academic activity which is recorded with a result on the academic history. A passed course normally gives academic credit towards completing a degree and may help complete a program of study. There are 'full' (Y) and 'half' (H) courses, each with a different credit weight. 

Course Code
This is the unique identifier of every course which is used in the Academic Calendar and information system like ACORN and Degree Explorer. The course code breaks down further into these section: 

Element Examples Explanation
Course Code KPE355Y1, KPE100H1  
Course Designation KPE The three-letter designator identifies the program offering the course. In this example, KPE refers to Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education
Course Number 355, 100

Every course in a program has its own identifying digit. Courses run from "100-level" (starting with 1) all the way to "400-level" (starting with a 4), and as they go up, broadly they indicate more advanced or more focused study.

Course Weight

Y (1.0)

H (0.5)

"Y" indicates the course is a "full-course" and is worth 1.0 credit. "H" indicates a "half course" and is worth 0.5 credit.
Campus indicator 1 This digit indicates the campus where the course is being offered. The "1" (one) indicates courses that are taught at the downtown St. George Campus. "3" (three) indicates it is taught at the Scarborough Campus and "5" (five) means it is taught at the Mississauga Campus. Lastly, "0" (zero) meaning it is taught off-campus. 

ACORN (Accessible Campus Online Resource Network)
ACORN is the automated student information/records system. You will be able to access ACORN via the internet. With this system, students can enrol in academic, and activity courses online in “real time.” This means you will know the results of your requests for courses immediately.


You may do the following on the web within pertinent dates:

  • Add, cancel or change courses/meeting sections for academic courses
  • Add, cancel or change waiting list enrolment for courses where waiting lists are active
  • List your academic courses
  • Check available space in academic courses
  • View/print your personal timetable
  • Check results of academic courses requiring approval (i.e. courses with enrolment indicators)
  • Access your GPAs, your academic status, and your final grades
  • View activity log (history of all transactions processed)
  • Update your personal information (mailing address, telephone number, contact information, etc.)
  • Check your fees account balance and details
  • Print T2202 Tuition, Education and Textbooks Certificate
  • Track your current degree progress with Degree Explorer
  • Check for recently approved course equivalents from other universities with Transfer Explorer

Students can access ACORN by using their JOINid/UTORid and password at the following link: acorn.utoronto.ca

UTORids are issued when a student obtains their TCard. For more information about obtaining a TCard and activating the UTORid please visit the following link: tcard.utoronto.ca

Students who enrol in courses agree by virtue of that enrolment to abide by all of the academic and non-academic policies, rules and regulations of the University and of his or her academic division, as set out in the divisional calendar, and confirm responsibility for payment of associated fees, and agree to ensure that the accuracy of personal information such as the current mailing address, telephone number, and utoronto.ca email address is maintained.

A student’s registration is not complete until he or she has paid tuition and incidental fees, or has made appropriate arrangements to pay. Students who defer fee payment or whose payment is deferred pending receipt of OSAP or other awards, acknowledge that they continue to be responsible for payment of all charges, including any service charges that may be assessed. For details see the Student Accounts Web site at www.studentaccount.utoronto.ca.

Adding/Dropping Courses After Enrolment
A student can only add or delete courses without academic penalty before the deadlines specified in the academic calendar. Failure to observe these deadlines will not be a basis for a petition to drop a course. A student wishing to add  a course after the deadline, with the Arts and Science exception noted in the following section, must petition to do so.

Adding Arts & Science Courses After The Last Date to Enrol
Arts & Science course enrolment and section changes must be completed by the deadlines published in the academic calendar. Late requests will not be considered. Arts and Science courses may have limited enrolment because of room capacities or because of departmental policy for pedagogical reasons. In either case, if a course or section is full on the last date to add courses, no additional students will be enrolled. Course instructors do NOT have the authority to enrol students in an Arts and Science course or section and a letter of acceptance from the instructor will not enable a student to enrol.

Course and Waiting List Monitoring
Students are responsible for monitoring their records. It is extremely important that you check on ACORN each term before the appropriate course add/drop and waiting list deadlines to carefully and completely review your list of courses as reported. Failure to do so could have serious negative academic and/or financial ramifications. Petitions that could have been avoided through proper course monitoring are not viewed sympathetically.

Course Conflicts
It is strongly recommended that students not enrol in courses with conflicting meeting times as, in accordance with standard University practice, such students receive no special consideration with respect to tests, examinations or mandatory attendance sessions that conflict or with respect to information conveyed in classes not attended.

T-Card  (Student Photo-identification)
The T-Card (photo ID) is required for admission to lectures and laboratories, for participation in student activities, and for library privileges. It must also be produced for identification when examinations are being written (see "Examinations" for photo ID requirements for examinations). If a student loses a card, the TCard website can assist with replacement and reporting procedures http://tcard.utoronto.ca There is a fee for the replacement of lost cards. 

Time Limits
To graduate, the full program must be completed within 10 years following initial registration, and all regulations specified when the student was first admitted must be fulfilled. When a period of two or more years has elapsed since completion of a course, the course content will be evaluated relative to current academic requirements in judging whether the candidate has satisfied all of the degree requirements.
