How do I enrol and pay fees?

1

Log into ACORN

Your letter of offer will include your student number and your JOINid. Visit the JOINid website to enable your JOINid.

Once your JOINid is enabled you can log into ACORN. ACORN is U of T’s student information service - a hub for everything you need to manage your student life.

  • If you’ve logged in to JOINid or ACORN in the past, you can use the same login information that you used previously.
  • If you’ve applied to other U of T programs, you may be asked to provide an OUAC reference number at this point in the process.

Add a course

First day of enrolment

  • Course enrolment for Visiting Students for the Fall/ Winter 2018-2019 session begins on August 10, 2018.

How to add a course

Under the Enrol & Manage menu option on ACORN, enter the course code for the course that you want to take. For example:

HIS109Y1


Course fees vs. program fees 

As long as you stay within the 3.5 Full Course Equivalent (FCE) credit limit during the Fall/ Winter session, you will be charged course fees, which are calculated on a per-course basis.

However, if you enrol in more than 3.5 FCEs over the course of the Fall/ Winter session, you will be charged program fees, which are significantly more costly. Please contact our office if you have enrolled in more than 3.5 FCEs and/ or if you have been charged program fees.

Confirm your prerequisites

If the course(s) you’ve chosen have prerequisites, corequisites or exclusions, you’ll need to contact the academic department for each course to demonstrate that you’ve met these. Some departments will require that you send them an unofficial version of your transcript. Make sure to do this well before the start of classes so that you aren’t removed from your courses.

To find a contact person for each academic department, consult the list of academic program advisors on the Faculty of Arts & Science website.

Proof of payment

As long as you’ve paid or deferred your fees on or before the deadline, you don’t need to do anything further. Bank processing can take several days, and the University has a grace period to allow for this.

However, if you’ve paid your fees after the deadline, you’ll need to send us a proof of payment. Email us your proof of payment right away so that we can complete your registration and ensure that you aren’t removed from your courses.
