How to Use the Calendar

Understanding the Calendar

This Calendar serves as an academic information guide and statement of the most important rules and regulations for students seeking to enrol at the University of Toronto Mississauga, and is published annually online. It outlines the rules, regulations, and academic curriculum to inform students throughout their enrolment and pursuit of their goals.

The academic information listed in this Calendar is applicable for the year(s) to which the Calendar applies. For each program of study offered by the University, the courses necessary to complete the minimum requirements of the program are made available annually. We must, however, reserve the right otherwise to change the content of courses, instructors and instructional assignments, enrolment limitations, prerequisites and corequisites, grading policies, requirements for promotion and timetables without prior notice.

Please note that not all courses listed in this Calendar are offered every year. For a complete listing of courses offered this academic year, see the Timetable website.

Using the Right Calendar for Your Degree Requirements

Students must follow the degree requirements listed in the Calendar for the Session they were admitted to the university as a degree student. For example, if you were admitted to the University beginning in September 2021, you would follow the degree requirements listed in the 2021-2022 Calendar. The degree type a student will receive depends on the program(s) they complete. In the Program Section, each program title lists the degree received (for instance, "English (Arts)," "Geography (Science)," etc.).

The word "credit," is used in the listing of degree requirements, means a full course or two half courses. In order to obtain academic standing in a course, a student must receive at least a passing grade (50%) in that course. Additionally, credits earned are applied toward your degree requirements chronologically in the order in which they were completed.

Enrolment Limitations

The University makes every reasonable effort to plan and control enrolment to ensure that all of our students are qualified to complete the programs to which they are admitted, and to strike a practicable balance between enrolment and available instructional resources.

Sometimes such a balance cannot be struck and the number of qualified students exceeds the instructional resources that we can reasonably make available while at the same time maintaining the quality of instruction. In such cases, we must reserve the right to limit enrolment in the programs, courses or sections listed in the calendar, and to withdraw courses or sections for which enrolment or resources are insufficient. The University will not be liable for any loss, damages, or other expenses that such limitations or withdrawals might cause.

Changes in Programs of Study and/or Courses

If the University must change the content of programs of study or withdraw them, all reasonable advance notice and alternative instruction will be given. The University will not, however, be liable for any loss, damages, or other expenses that such changes might cause.

Statement Regarding In-Person Learning

The University of Toronto delivers academic programs through an in-person learning environment. All students should therefore plan to attend on-campus activities in-person in order to successfully complete their program/ degree unless: (i) students have been approved by the University to participate in off-campus activities (such as study abroad or work terms), or (ii) the calendar entry for a program/degree explicitly states that no in-person activities are required.
While the University strives to maintain an in-person learning environment, the University reserves the right to alter the manner in which it delivers its courses and co-curricular opportunities in response to health and safety emergencies and public health guidance.

Registration Guides

Important information for students regarding specific registration, enrolment, payment, and other academic and financial information can be found in the Registration Guide, which can be accessed on the Office of the Registrar website. Students should familiarize themselves with this resource, and use it alongside this Calendar.
