UofT Faculty of Arts and Science Students not in First Year Commerce
A limited number of spaces in Rotman Commerce will be available to University of Toronto Faculty of Arts & Science students who were not admitted to the First Year Commerce category but who have completed the required first year program entry courses (RSM100Y, ECO100Y, and MAT133Y or equivalent). Entry into Rotman Commerce through this route is very competitive. Students who apply are advised to simultaneously ensure that they have appropriate prerequisites for other Arts and Science programs of interest.
All St. George campus Faculty of Arts & Science students are required to enrol in subject posts at the end of the session in which they complete their fourth credit. You must enrol in the minimum appropriate combination of subject posts for your degree before your course enrolment period starts, or you will be prevented from enrolling in courses on ROSI. Please check with your College Registrar for further information.
Students may NOT enrol in 200, 300 or 400 series RSM courses until they have been accepted into Rotman Commerce.
Important Note: Students enrolled in a commerce subject post pay higher fees; see Tuition information for complete details. If you are registered in the 2014 Summer Session and have at least 4.0 credits, and then accept an invitation to a commerce subject post, your fees in the 2014 Summer Session will be affected.
