1. Registration

Invoice, Payment and OSAP deferral

To be officially registered for the Summer Session you must both enrol in a course and pay your fees. Please note that the Summer Session course fees will be available near the end of April.

The University of Toronto no longer mails invoices for fees. If you are registering for Summer Session courses, your invoice will be available to view on ROSI. If you pay your Summer Session fees or officially defer your payment (e.g. using OSAP) by Thursday, April 26, 2012, your registration will be processed automatically; however, if you pay or defer your fees after Thursday, April 26, 2012, you must take your fees receipt (paid statement from the bank, printout of the online transaction) to the Office of the Registrar by Thursday, May 10, 2012, to be manually registered.

If you have no outstanding fees from previous sessions and if you applied for OSAP, you may request deferral of your fees payment. This deferral is not automatic. You must complete the deferral online, on ROSI.

If you need to defer your fees but did not apply for OSAP by the deadline you should go to Admissions & Awards, 172 St. George St., to request a deferral form.

Please keep your dated fees receipt in case you need it at a later date.

Registering a course will incur a fee. DO NOT register in any course if you are unable to pay the entire course fee. There will be a very limited fees adjustment period for summer courses. Never enrol in any course without thoroughly consulting the fees adjustment/refund schedule at Students are responsible for all course fees and failure to clear tuition balances will preclude any student from registering in the fall/winter session. There are absolutely no exceptions to fees adjustments or refund schedules. If you have any questions about fees and refunds, please talk to the Office of the Registrar before you enrol in a course.

Automatic registration and course cancellation

If your registration (payment) is not recorded by Thursday, May 10, 2012, your registration will incur a financial cancelation (FINCA) and your courses will be removed from your schedule.

If you have been removed from a course and you would like to be reinstated you may do so until Wednesday May 16, 2012 at 4 p.m., you will be required to pay a $61 late registration fee (for F and Y courses). Please be advised that you may not be able to get re-instated in Arts & Science courses. If you have any outstanding financial obligations to the University—including tuition and residence charges—you must pay the outstanding fees in full before you may register for the next academic session. Payments to your student account will first be applied to outstanding debts from previous sessions before they are applied to the 2012 Summer Session fees.

Because the last day to add an S course in the Summer Session is later than the deadline to pay for a Summer Session course, students must enrol in at least one Summer Session course and pay 65% of the required fees in order to open a Summer Session registration. Once registered, a student may add or drop courses according to published deadlines. Students attempting to add an S course without registering before the deadline to pay will be refused.

3. What Engineering students must know before taking Summer Arts & Sciences courses and JRE courses

The first day that you may enrol in St. George Campus Arts & Science Summer Session courses is Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 6 a.m. on ROSI. The first day you may enrol in JRE courses is Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at 6 a.m. on ROSI. Review the JRE timetable for courses offered, times and locations. Note: students may take ONE JRE course at a time only.

Before you consider enrolling in an Arts & Science Summer Session course, please review the information below:

  • You are strongly advised to speak with your Undergraduate Academic Counsellor prior to enrolling in an Arts & Science course. Your Undergraduate Academic Counsellor will confirm whether or not the course you would like to enrol in will count towards your Engineering degree. You must receive approval from your undergraduate academic counsellor if you plan to take a Summer Session course to complete a Humanities and Social Science (HSS), Complementary Studies (CS), or free elective requirement.

Courses that cannot be counted towards your Engineering degree will be designated as "extra." "Extra" credits are not used to calculate your Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA); however, "extra" credits can be used to fulfill the requirements of a minor. The decision to designate a course as credit or "extra" must be made prior to the deadline to drop the course without academic penalty.

  • If you are not able to meet with your Undergraduate Academic Counsellor before the Arts & Science Summer Session enrolment date, you are advised to meet with your Counsellor prior to the 100% refund date to avoid any unwanted tuition charges. The refund schedule for Engineering can be found at Note: Engineering students enrolling in Arts & Science and JRE courses are subject to the Engineeering fee and refund dates.
  • You are permitted to enrol or wait in a maximum of three "H" courses or one "H" and one "Y"—a total of 1.5 credits—for the Summer Session. (If you are required to take more than 1.5 credits, you must speak to your undergraduate academic counsellor.)
  • The mark that you obtain in a Summer Session course will not be used to calculate your Fall and Winter Session averages; however, your Summer Session course mark, provided the course was taken for degree credit, will be included in your Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).
  • If you fail the 2012 Winter Session and are required to withdraw, your Summer Session courses will be automatically removed from your schedule, and you will receive a 100% refund of the Summer Session course fees.

St. George Arts & Science Calendar

St. George Arts & Science Summer Timetable

UTM Summer Session Guide

UTSC Summer Session Guide

Use the Calendar and Summer timetable to decide which courses you wish to take. Double-check the time for courses you have chosen to avoid conflicts. ROSI does not check for time conflicts—it is your responsibility to create a conflict-free schedule.

Pre-requisites, co-requisites and exclusions indicated in the Calendar course descriptions must be carefully observed. Refer to the Calendar for definitions. Be aware that prerequisites, co-requisites, and exclusions are not checked by ROSI in real time, but they will be checked! If you do not meet them, you will be removed from the course. This can happen at any time, even after classes have started.

If you have already taken an exclusion, you will be required to withdraw from the course if discovered during the session of enrolment and will be refused degree credit in the excluded course if discovered at any time in a subsequent session. 

Enrolment Controls

Enrolment controls are used to determine criteria/restrictions for enrolling in a course. Enrolment controls, if used, appear in the timetable listings. Not all courses have enrolment controls and some courses have multiple controls, but all courses have enrolment limitations. Note: enrolment controls listed beside a course in the timetable listings apply to all lecture sections of a course unless otherwise noted.

Enrolment Indicators

Enrolment indicators are used in the "Enrolment Indicator" column of the timetable listings. They identify how enrolment controls are being used and/or alert you to different enrolment processes.

Read more about Enrolment Indicators and Enrolment Controls in the Arts & Science Timetable. Note that Engineering students cannot register for Arts & Science courses before Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 6 a.m. regardless of an enrolment control or enrolment indicator.

Waiting Lists

Waiting lists have been introduced as a function of course enrolment. All lecture meeting sections with the exception of E indicator courses have waiting lists. We think this will benefit you as a student in at least two ways: (i) it will remove the arbitrariness in how students get a place in a course once the course fills; (ii) you will not have to check ROSI repeatedly to try to enrol in a course that has filled.

Waiting lists enable you to "line up" for a space that might become available in a lecture section that is full, or in an enrolment category that is full. If a space becomes available, and you are next on the waiting list, you will automatically be enrolled. It is your responsibility to check ROSI periodically to monitor your waiting list status.

ROSI will send email messages to the U of T email address of students who have been enrolled in a course through the waiting list process prior to the start of classes, and again after the waiting lists have been turned off. Please be sure to update your email address on ROSI with your UTORmail address (

The following Frequently Asked Questions were adapted from the Arts & Science registration instructions. The notable changes for engineering students is that enrolment begins on Wednesday, April 18, 2012.

*** See full FAQ on waiting lists here.

When are waiting lists in use?

Waiting lists are available from the start of course enrolment on Wednesday, April 18, 2012 for Engineering students until Thursday, May 17, 2012 for F/Y Session code courses and Thursday, July 6, 2012 for S courses.

You are also responsible for any academic and or incidental fees arising from the course enrolment.

After the waiting lists are closed, course enrolment for courses that previously had waiting lists becomes first-add, first-served. The dates for this period are:

  • Friday, May 18, 2012 to Monday, May 21, 2012 for F and Y section code courses
  • Thursday, July 6, 2012 to Monday, July 9, 2012  for S section code courses

During this period, you should try to enrol using ROSI.

It is important to cancel a course officially as soon as you have decided to drop it, since fees refunds are calculated according to the date the cancellation is recorded. Courses that are not cancelled by the deadlines will remain on your record and may count as failures. A cancellation of your registration in the summer session past the first refund date will result in a less than 100% refund—refer to the Student Accounts web site for details.

The deadline to apply for a Late Withdrawal (LWD) from an Arts & and Science course is the last day of classes for the course section code. LWD requests must be made through your undergraduate academic counsellor. Please review the policy and guidelines for LWD before considering such a request. 

F1 Session Courses

Arts & Science is offering a number of condensed courses (0.5 credit) from May 14 to June 14 with an exam period of June 25 to 29. When enrolling, remember that the session code for these courses is F1. To learn more about F1 courses, see the Arts & Science summer timetable.

5. ROSI Instructions

ROSI (Repository of Student Information) is the University's student information system. The Student Web Service (SWS) provides you with internet access to ROSI. There are many self-serve functions on the SWS:

  1. • manage your courses
  2. • add, modify, or cancel courses/meeting sections
  3. • list your courses (includes approved, interim, refused, and waitlisted courses); you can also drop courses from the list
  4. • manage waiting lists (including viewing rank on a waiting list)
  5. • get timetable information for a course
  6. • check available space
  7. • enter up to three courses and ROSI will show timetable information and space available; if courses are full, you can display lectures with waiting lists; the display includes the number of students already on the waiting list
  8. • links to "manage your courses"
  9. • change your PIN/PIN reactivation * links to "manage your courses"
  10. • view SWS activity log
  11. • update your personal information (mailing address, telephone number, contact information, etc.)
  12. • access your grades, GPA and academic status
  13. • check your fees account balance and details
  14. • view your academic record
  15. • order transcripts
  16. • view/print "Tuition & Educational Amounts Certificate" (T2202A)

Hours of Operation: Monday: 6 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday: 12:15 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. Friday: 12:15 a.m. to 6 p.m. * Weekends: Saturday 12:01 a.m. through Sunday 11:45 p.m.

Hours may change from time to time for scheduled maintenance or technical reasons. For up-to-date information on ROSI availability, check "Hours of Operation" on ROSI.

First-time Users: Logging In

When you access the ROSI for the first time, you must login using your student number and your PIN (Personal Identification Number.) Your initial six-digit PIN is your year, month and day of birth in YYMMDD format (e.g., April 23, 1988 = 880423.) As soon as you have logged in using your birth date PIN, you will be prompted to select a new PIN. You have to select a new PIN only once. If you have questions or problems, you must go in person (with appropriate identification) to the Office of the Registrar in GB 157.

PIN Reactivation

You no longer need to go into the Office of the Registrar to have your PIN reset. Make sure you set yourself up for PIN reactivation. Log onto ROSI, and select "Maintain your PIN" from the main menu, then "Setup for PIN Reactivation." You will be presented with a list of questions from which you must answer three. Choose questions and answers you are not likely to forget. If, after you’ve set up for PIN Reactivation, your access to the ROSI is suspended or you have forgotten your PIN, you can select the "PIN Reactivation" button from the login page. Upon successfully answering two randomly-selected questions (of the three you answered during the setup process) you can reset your PIN and log onto ROSI.

Changes Are Immediate

Changes are recorded immediately on the student record system. When you cancel a course your space becomes immediately available for enrolment by other students, or enrolment through the waiting list function.

List Your Courses, Meeting Sections and Status

Always use the "list courses and meeting sections" option after you add or cancel courses or make changes. ROSI will list courses and meeting sections you are enrolled in when using this feature. You are charged fees for all courses in which you are enrolled. Listing your courses verifies that you have made adds and cancellations correctly.

Cancellation of Your Last Course

The ROSIwill warn you if you are cancelling your last course. If you do not intend to take any other courses in the 2012 Summer Session, choose the "cancel registration" option. This will ensure that your fees account will be adjusted properly. If you intend to enrol in other courses later in the session, do not cancel your registration. This will allow you to use the ROSI later in the summer session to add courses.
