Before Enrolling

Welcome!

The e-tutorial series you are about to review was recorded by our team prior to the start of the Fall/Winter 2022-2023 academic year. Our e-tutorials are intended to help all students starting in the Fall and Winter terms. You may encounter dates corresponding to the Fall term as well as dates corresponding to the Winter term.

As you review the e-tutorials, remember:

All Computer Science, Computer Security, Earth and Atmospheric Science and Engineering students will enrol into Term WL courses. Classes start Monday January 23, 2023.

All Digital Media students will enrol into Term W courses.
Classes start Monday January 9, 2023.
Welcome to Lassonde! If you’ve received the link to this website, this means it’s time to enrol. Let’s take it one step at a time.

Meet your Academic Advising team and learn more about what to expect as you enrol into courses:

Proceed to review each of the instructional videos below. Our videos will guide you through the enrolment process from start to finish.
Now that you have had an opportunity to learn more about our team, it is time to learn more about your new School, program, and courses. Our e-tutorial series is designed to familiarize you with the information and resources you need to start your year off successfully.

Our goal is to help you learn more about your new community. That’s why Zeripha is here to help you get to know Lassonde:

Degree Requirements
 
Before you can enrol, you need to know which courses you’re supposed to take. These courses are called “degree requirements”.

Chantel is here to help you locate your degree requirements:

Refer back to your e-mail package now. You’ve received a program checklist in your email to see which courses you will need to take in your first year.

Transfer Credits

If you are a transfer credit student, the Transfer Credit Admissions team has prepared a transfer credit statement for you. Your most up-to-date statement is accessible via your MyFile account.

If you have questions about your transfer credits, Chantel can help you understand your transfer credit statement:

If your transfer credit statement is complete, then an Academic Advisor will apply your transfer credits to your checklist, so you will know what you need to take at York University in order to complete your degree.
 
If, after your transfer credit statement is finalized, you believe you should be eligible for additional transfer credits, connect with our Academic Advising team or the Transfer Credit Admissions team directly. If a re-assessment is required, you may request one in the future.

Searching for Courses 

Now that you know which courses to enrol into, it’s time to find them online.
