Enrolment Instructions

Course enrolment for geography courses is available online via ACORN starting on August 2, 2023. Review the full course enrolment instructions. 

Geography students can consult the Selecting Courses page for info on how to choose courses, number of courses per session, courses outside the department, etc. 

Course enrolment for students from other departments is available online via Acorn on August 25, 2023 (10am ET). The department does not require any forms from students outside the department – if space is available students are welcome to enroll using ACORN. If space is not available, students can add themselves to a waitlist (if there is no waitlist in Acorn it means the course is not open to students outside Geography & Planning). If your home department requires a signature in order to approve your enrolment please send the form by email to graduate.geography@utoronto.ca

Students who wish to audit a course must obtain permission directly from the course instructor within the first week of class. Permission is subject to available space and can only be granted by the course instructor. 

Only registered students at the University of Toronto may audit courses. Auditing entitles a student to attend lectures only. Students may not submit any written work, attend labs/tutorials or write tests/exams. The student will not be enrolled in the course and the course will not appear on their transcript. The department does not provide certificates of attendance.
