Student Program Planning

Student Program Planning

Program selection and completion are important milestones within a student’s academic development and success at the University of Toronto, but navigating through these processes can often seem confusing, intimidating, and overwhelming for many first-year students!  

That’s why the Centre for Student Engagement, in collaboration with the Office of the Registrar, Office of Advancement, the Career Centre, and individual academic departments, provides new students with opportunities to explore their academic and career interests through easy-to-follow and interactive sessions, resources, and workshops. These events also ensure students can meet with important support staff across various offices and academic departments to access useful information about the program selection process!

Upcoming Events

Pathways to Programs (P2P)

Student Programming Planning Interactive Exhibition (SPPIE)

What to expect:  

This event gives you an opportunity to continue planning for program enrollment, with the added bonus of exploring the specific academic departments you’re most interested in. Drop in at any time to attend different interactive stations and workshops designed to help with program planning. What’s more, you can now meet with department representatives, career coaches, academic advisors, UTM alumni, and student mentors to help guide you with program planning.  

You can even do some degree planning and find ways to better engage and get involved on campus in time for the second year!  

Why attend:

Now that you’re almost done with the first year, you will have a better sense of the specific programs you’d like to explore further. With this knowledge in hand and various campus offices, resources, and supports to help, you can fine-tune your existing program plan or create a new one. Attending SPPIE will better ensure you have all the pieces in place to successfully enroll in your subject POSt of choice by the end of your first year!   

Event Details:  
The SPPIE event is traditionally held in mid-March, ahead of the subject POSt enrollment dates. The exact date, times and location will be confirmed next semester.
