Students indicate what courses they plan to take through a process called Course Intentions. Course Intentions are not a guarantee of enrolment but provided there are no holds on the students account and there are enough seats in the course, enrolment is automatic. If a manual enrolment is required students can do so during their designated enrolment window.
Course intentions are done for incoming 1st year students but mandatory for all other students.
Students who wish to complete a minor can do so by taking the required courses for the Minor in addition to the required courses for their degree. The student will then apply for their Minor when they submit their application to graduate.
For policies and details regarding Minors, please visit Toronto Met Undergraduate Calendar.
For long term accommodation, free confidential counselling services and other health support services, please visit Toronto Met Student Wellbeing (opens in new window) page.
For short term requests for missed classes or extensions students must submit an Academic Consideration Request. Students have a 1-time per semester submission with no supporting documentation. See policy 167 or speak with your Academic Coordinator for details.
Academic Consideration Requests are submitted online and are for short term considerations (e.g. due to having the flu). Guidelines and documentation can be found on the Senate website.
