For students 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 their program Fall 2018:
Fall 2018: FT
Winter 2019: FT
Summer 2019: FT
Fall 2019: FT
*FINAL PERIOD TO SWITCH TO PT*
Winter 2020: switched to PT [If not switched to PT by early-January 2020, 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 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.
