Understanding Course Offerings
- Each course offered in a particular session (Fall, Winter, or Summer) is identified by a term code which has a specific start and end date, exam period, as well as specific deadlines for adding and dropping the course.
- For example, an “F2” term code is held in the Fall session, begins in early September, and ends in December. An “A” term course is held in the first six weeks of the Fall session, begins in early September, and ends in October.
Learn more about term codes on the Schulich Course Offerings Legend.
- Note that there are deadlines for adding and dropping courses. Review important Sessional Dates.
Note: Academic policies and detailed enrolment and registration information are available in your program-specific Academic Handbook. Find yours by logging into your MySchulich portal.
How to Enrol in Courses
To enrol in classes, all students must use a Passport York account to log in to the York Registration and Enrolment system. Click to enable your Passport York account.
Students locate the catalog numbers for the courses they are permitted to enrol in using the Schulich Course Offerings pages (above) for the appropriate term (Fall, Winter, Summer). A catalog number is the 6 digit number attached to a course. Students then use these catalog numbers to enrol via the York Registration and Enrolment system.
If a course is full, you can put your name on the Wait List.
Your fees and the number of credits you can enrol are determined by your status in the program.
Full-time: Enrolment in a maximum of 18.00 credits per term (15.00 credits until Priority Wait List deadline)
Part-time: Enrolment in a maximum of 7.50 credits per term
Note: If your status is full-time and you enrol in less than 9.00 credits, you will be charged full-time fees.
Complete the Enrolment Status Change form prior to the start of the term to change your status. You can find it in your Academic Forms database on your MySchulich account.
When to Enrol in Courses
Enrolment access dates and times are determined by credits earned in the program, with priority access given to students with the most credits.
Students can find out the date they are able to enrol by logging in to the Access dates and times system.

After the second week of classes, students will no longer be able to add themselves to courses and are not permitted to attend courses for which they are not formally enrolled. Students are responsible for ensuring they are enrolled in the correct course load for their program of study. Students must be formally enrolled in all classes they are attending.
