Registration Information

Registration and enrolment procedures are outlined in 2020-2021 Fall/Winter Timetable, which is available on the Faculty of Arts & Science Course Planning page.  

The Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies uses various indicators to guide enrolment in its courses. Courses with a “R”, "E" indicators are restricted to students in the Criminology and Sociolegal Studies program for pedagogical reasons. For courses are denoted by an ”E” indicator, CrimSL students must obtain written permission from Faculty and/or the Program Office. Review the instructions in the timetable for further instructions.

Students must have met all prerequisite requirements as published in the most recent release of the Faculty of Arts & Science Calendar. Students enrolled in courses for which they do not have the published prerequisites may have their registration in those courses cancelled at any time without warning.

Non-program students are not eligible to enrol in restricted courses. Auditing is not permitted.  

Students admitted to the academic year as "Visiting Students" who are studying Criminology and Sociolegal Studies at their home university may request enrolment in 300 level CRI courses provided they have completed similar courses that fulfill course prerequisites and there is space available in the course. Requests for 400 level CRI courses will be approved provided there is space in the course and the student meets comparable course prerequisties. Course requests must be forwarded to us in a timely manner and must include a copy of the approved letter of permission and an up-to-date transcript.

Registration Restriction in 400 level Seminars - Carefully review the following:

Effective from 9:00 a.m. on July 13 to 8:59 a.m. on July 16: Enrolment Restriction is in place for all 400 seminars offered in the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 terms.

  • Registration limit during this time for students in the Major: 1.0 FCE
  • Restriction limit during this time for students in the Specialist: 1.5 FCE
  • From 9:00 a.m. on July 13 to 8:59 a.m. on July 16 all extra enrolments/waitlisted courses above 1.0 FCE for majors (1.5 FCE for specialists) will be deleted by the Program office without notice; reinstatement in preferred courses will not be possible if the course is full. No exceptions will be made. 
  • At 9:00 am on July 16 students may enrol or waitlist additional 400 level courses beyond the aforementioned limits

Why is this restriction in place?The Program Office guarantees that students who are graduating in June 2021 will be enrolled the minimum course requirements for the Major /Specialist programs. Enrolment start times are determined by the Faculty of Arts and Science and late start-times adversely impact students’ access to 400 level courses. This restriction minimized the impact that a late registration has on students.What happens during the July 13- July 16 8:59 am restriction period: From 9:00 a.m. on July 13 to 8:59 a.m. on July 16 all extra enrolments/waitlisted courses above the allowable 1.0 FCEs for majors (1.5 FCEs for specialists) will be deleted by the Program office without notice; reinstatement in preferred courses will not be possible if the course is full. No exceptions will be made. 

What happens on July 16 at 9:00 am?Restriction is lifted. Students can now add/waitlist additional 400 seminar courses.   

NOTE: Students are responsible for enrolling as soon as their registration window opens. Failure to do so may impact your ability to enrol in your preferred courses. Students who have a late registration start-time and are still unable to secure the minimum required CRI 400 level courses (0.5 for the major, 1.0 for the specialist) must contact Silvia Cocolo for assistance at silvia.cocolo@utoronto.ca. This must be done in a timely manner, not days or weeks later! Please include your student number and a brief message outlining the issue. Students who already meet the minimum 400 level program requirements (0.5 for the major, 1.0 for the specialist) may not request additional 400 level courses unless they are able to secure a space via ACORN. 

Course removals: Prerequisites, corequisites and exclusions must be observed. Students enrolled in courses for which they do not have the published prerequisites, may have their registration in those courses cancelled without warning at any time if such registration is discovered.   

Delivery Method for the 2020 Fall and 2021 Winter term:

  • Online - Synchronous: Course may be completed fully online; some required real-time activities will be held online, as scheduled in the timetable. 
  • Asynchronous: Course may be completed fully online without requirement for participation in scheduled, real-time activities. 
  • In Person: Some course activities will be held on campus at a set time as scheduled in timetable.

Each course will indicate the delivery method in the timetable, below. Some courses may offer more than one delivery method; these are listed as two distinct lecture sections. The in-person sections have lower enrolments to allow the Faculty of Arts and Science to adhere to provincially mandated social distancing protocols. Students who are not officially registered in the in-person lecture section (or waitlisted for an in-person section) will not be allowed to attend the in-person class. No exceptions. The Winter session currently lists 2 delivery modes for most course offerings. The in-person course delivery could change to online pending provincial health advisories. The University of Toronto will monitor the situation and make a final determination sometime in the Fall term. Any changes to the delivery mode will be communicated to students as soon as possible and posted on this page.

Required: Fall 2020: CRI205H1, CRI225H1Required: Winter 2021: CRI210H1

  • If you have completed POL222H1 and would like to use this course in lieu of CRI350H1 please email Silvia Cocolo your request. Be sure to include your student id number in your email.
  • Revised prerequisites for all Advanced topics, CRI490H1/491 courses offered in 2020 Fall and 2021 Winter: Prerequisite: 0.5 CRI 300 half-credit lecture course

Frequently asked question: Which program requirements do I need to follow? The current calendar doesn't match what is listed in Degree Explorer (DEX).

Answer: The current calendar lists the program requirements that apply for students who will be admitted to the program in the subsequent spring admission cycle. The program requirements that apply to you are those listed on DEX (based on the year you were admitted to the program).

Can I double count courses?

Answer: Always use DEX to track your program (and degree!) requirements - DEX will also use courses that can count towards 2 programs based on the limitations listed in section 'b' under HBA/HBSc Requirements* in the Calendar. A student doing 2 majors must include at least 12.0 different credits in the two majors. This means that if "Major A" is comprised of 8.0 credits and "Major B" is comprised of 7.0 credits, the allowable overlap is 3.0 credits (8.0+7.0=15.0. 15.0 - 12.0= 3.0).

If you have questions about your degree or double-counting courses please contact your Registrar. Questions about CrimSL can be emailed to us.

Question: Why is Dex not picking up my credits?

Answer: Credits are not always picked up by DEX because the course code may not correspond to an existing course. This is normally the case for transfer credits or if a topics course (with the same course but different topic) has been taken more than once. In these cases, you must email the appropriate academic unit to have the credit added manually to your academic record.
