For student considering switching registration status from Full time to Part time, please keep in mind that this switch must be done prior to the start of the winter session in your second year or you will be locked in as a full time student.
Example for an MI student who started the program Fall 2017:
Fall 2017: FT
Winter 2018: FT
Summer 2018: FT
Fall 2018: FT
*FINAL PERIOD TO SWITCH TO PT*
Winter 2019: switched to PT [If not switched to PT by early-January 2019, FT student is locked in as FT]
This is based on SGS Policy: “A switch from full-time to part-time status is not permitted once the program length defined for the program has been completed.” Details on the SGS Calendar at: http://www.sgs.utoronto.ca/calendar/Pages/Registration-and-Enrolment.aspx and website: http://www.sgs.utoronto.ca/currentstudents/Pages/Registration-and-Enrolment.aspx – see under Enrolment Status (Full-Time, Part-Time, Flexible Time). Also on the iSchool website at: https://ischool.utoronto.ca/current-students/programs-courses/enrollment-registration/ – see under Course Loads – Change of Full-time/Part-Time Status.
