Course Selection and Program Information
We have created a Quercus page for new students to help you navigate your course selection and ease your transition into university. Quercus is a learning management engine and is the University of Toronto’s primary online teaching and learning platform. Students who have accepted their UofT offer will receive an email on how to access Quercus.
From May to August, join us for our drop-in academic advising sessions. These sessions cover course selection, program exploration, and how to navigate different UofT systems, as well as provide you an opportunity to ask questions. They are held every Wednesday from 9:15 to 10 a.m. EDT, and Thursday from 2:15 to 3 p.m. EDT. Links for these sessions can be found on our Quercus page.
Haven't accepted your offer but curious about programs and courses available at UofT? The Faculty of Arts and Science Calendar is a valuable source of information on programs of study, courses, important dates, and the rules/regulations of the Faculty.
- The Faculty of Arts & Science New Student Guide is a great resource that will guide you through a step-by-step process once you've accepted your offer to UofT.
- Vic has a Small Class Requirement, where incoming first-year students must enrol in a small class. This includes Vic One, Vic One Hundreds, or a First-Year Foundation One course offered through the Faculty of Arts & Science.
- Transfer Credits- Please see your Join UofT Portal account for detailed instructions on your expected transfer credits. If you have questions after you have received your transfer credit assessment, connect with the Registrar's Office.
- First-Year Learning Communities: The First-Year Learning Communities (FLC) Program in the Faculty of Arts and Science is designed to improve the transitional experience for first-year students. You will develop friendships, form study groups, and develop academic and personal skills. Victoria College sponsors two FLC groups in the Life Sciences. Open to all first-year students registered in FAS, you can also find FLC groups for Actuarial Science, Computer Science, Economics, Rotman Commerce, Mathematics and Social Science.
There is no cost to participate. Applications for FLC will be available early June. Space is limited so apply early.
