Before Enrolling

Meet Your Academic Advising Team

Welcome to Lassonde! If you have received the link to this website, this means it is time to enrol. Let us 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.

Lassonde Essentials

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 is why Chantel is here to help you get to know Lassonde:

If this is your first time attending university, you will encounter a new vocabulary and a new set of rules and regulations.

Zeripha can help simplify things before you start enrolling. Here is what you need to know before you enrol:

Take Action: Bookmark the Important Dates website now. You will need to reference it regularly as you move forward.

Degree Requirements

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

Zeripha is here to help you locate your degree requirements:

Refer back to your e-mail package now. You have 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, Zeripha 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 is time to find them online.

Sarah is here to show you how to search for courses:
