In addition to choosing your courses, you can also decide how you want to learn. We offer four course delivery options for you to choose from: 

Delivery mode What you can expect

  • weekly classes with scheduled attendance at a specific location and time for some or all course activities
  • class sizes will be at a reduced capacity to practice safe physical distancing
  • this delivery option is subject to adjustments imposed by public health requirements for physical distancing
In-person and online rotation 

  • classes will rotate between attendance in-person, and online delivery. 
  • class sizes will be at a reduced capacity to practice safe physical distancing
Online synchronous

  • online attendance is expected at a specific time for some or all course activities
Online asynchronous

  • lectures can be viewed "on demand" and students can go through course material at their own pace
  • all students are still required to meet deadlines for course work as noted in their course syllabus 

Regardless of the delivery option that you choose, it's important to read the course syllabus for each of your classes! Your professor will outline everything you need to know about when classes take place, how to get in touch with them, academic expectations, 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 and utmONE be your guide!

LAUNCH - 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 friendship with students in your area of study. Successful completers will receive a notation on your Co-Curricular Record.

 "The resources available at UTM are wonderful and worth exploring." -Momina, UTM Student

  • UTM101H5 LAUNCH Business, Commerce and Management
  • UTM102H5 LAUNCH Science, Mathematics and Psychology
  • UTM103H5 LAUNCH Humanities and Social Science 

utmONE - Develop your academic skills through interactive learning experiences in a small classroom community. Additionally, a series of tutorials will introduce you to essential elements of a well-rounded student experience. Most courses will be offered in the Fall 2020 term and will earn you a half-credit distribution requirement.

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 on the Fees & Financial Aid page.
