How to Enrol

Before you choose your courses on ACORN, we should cover the basics, and answer common questions you might have, such as:

  • How many courses can you take?
  • What courses do you need?
  • What are electives?
  • When do you choose a program?

Get started by downloading the Course Enrolment Workbook - a step-by-step guide that's the next best thing to having an academic advisor next to you! Follow along by watching short video tutorials, fill in the blanks with the questions you want to ask, courses and programs you want to take, and more. We will guide you through how to plan for your first year, how to complete your degree for graduation, transfer credit assessments, and more!

First Year Academic Transition Support

Navigating new experiences can be a challenge, especially when you're attending university - there are so many unknowns and so much to learn. Let LAUNCH, utmONE, and the Institute for the Study of University Pedagogy's First-Year Foundational courses be your guide!


Through interactive weekly sessions, you will have the opportunity to learn from an academically successful upper-year student mentor about the many aspects of being a UTM student. You will build academic skills, discover UTM resources, and even have the opportunity to meet with your mentor one-on-one, all while building meaningful friendships with students in your area of study. Successful completers will receive a notation on your Co-Curricular Record.

Visit the LAUNCH web page for more information and enrol in your LAUNCH stream through ACORN on your enrolment date.

utmONE First-Year Transition Courses

Build a strong academic foundation that will support your success in first year through to graduation. Taught by professors with a strong background in teaching learning strategies and academic skills, utmONE courses are for-credit first-year courses designed to help you transition to university. UtmONE courses offer a supportive and engaging learning environment; sections are smaller than typical first-year courses so you’ll have more opportunities to interact with your classmates, teaching assistant and professor. UtmONE courses are open to students in all disciplines and the credit received can count toward the distribution credits required to graduate.

Visit the utmONE web page for more information, student testimonials and enroll in a utmONE course through ACORN on your enrolment date.

Next Steps: After You Enrol in Courses

Becoming a registered student means you have enrolled in courses AND paid the minimum tuition amount of your fees (or officially deferred them). Your fees will be posted to your invoice on ACORN in mid-July.

To avoid being removed from your enrolled courses, make the Minimum Payment to Register as indicated on your financial account in ACORN – or defer your fees (if applicable) – by the published deadlines. More information about fee payment and fee deferrals is on the Fees & Financial Aid page.
