Summer 2019 course enrolment: Good to know information

See Summer 2019 Course Enrolment Dates for specific information (dates, course load, etc.)

Students planning to take a full course load during the summer session must consider the following:

  • Summer is not a regular session, and thus our course offering is less robust than fall and winter terms.
  • In order to accommodate all students we have a “phased” course enrolment. This means that the first day we open enrolment, all students are limited to enrolling in two (2) half courses only. We then increase it to two (2) more half courses for full time students, and so on. See Summer 2019 Course Enrolment Dates for details.
  • Most courses are offered in a compressed format. This means that the content of the course will be the same as if it were offered over 12 weeks, but assignments, mid-terms, etc. will happen at a much faster pace.

Planning to complete your degree requirements faster than the normal 2 year program length?

Students who complete the degree faster than the normal 2 year program length are responsible for paying the degree fee, which is equivalent to two years of full-time studies. Thus, students who “fast track” will have an outstanding Balance of Degree fee. Many part-time students must pay a balance of degree fee prior to graduation e.g., if a part-time student takes four years to finish, they will likely need to pay a balance-of-degree fee. Please see all details under the Fees on our website.

  •  The MI degree has been designed to be done in 2 years, and while it may be possible to complete it faster, and under special circumstances, we do not encourage it.
  •  A number of our graduates who have done it in less than two years, have told us, that in retrospective, they took courses that did not necessarily align with their goals in their race to finish faster.

  • Students planning to take this course must enrol in it whether they have already arranged for a placement or not.
  • The fact that a student may have arranged a placement does not guarantee a spot in the course. Students must enrol via ACORN themselves.
  • Please note the pre-requisites for this course. Email the instructor directly if you have any questions.

External courses: outside your program of study and outside the iSchool

  • Students planning on taking courses outside our Faculty should read the instructions posted on our website.
  • It may be a good idea to start the process of gathering the required information now and ensure that you will be able to enroll in the course(s) first, and then secure our approval.
  • Students bring all forms and documentation to Student Services for approval.
