Exclusion: U of T courses in which you may not enrol unless you forfeit the transfer credit. In addition, you may not enrol in any courses that are listed in the UTM Calendar as exclusions for these courses or the transfer credit courses. If you enrol in any of these courses, the course will be listed as "extra" on your transcript and will not count towards your degree.
