Help for Undergrads

  • Enrol here.
  • If your course is full, and you wish to get on a waiting list, please fill in the form
  • Filling in this form is no guarantee that you will get into the course. You should still try to enroll periodically in case a space opens up. But we'll try!
  • If the section you are trying to get into is full, then try to enrol in a different section - other sections may still have spaces!
  • Course restrictions on F term and Y term courses will lift at 11:59 PM on 10 September, 2021, and you may be able to enrol then. Course restrictions on W term and WL term courses will lift at 11:59 PM on 14 January, 2022, and you may be able to enrol then.
  • If you still can't enrol into a course after restrictions have been lifted or you are impatient to enrol, then you should contact the instructor by email and ask for permission to enrol.
  • The last day to add a course WITHOUT instructor permission is September 21, 2021 for F2021 and Y2021-2022.
  • The last day to add a course WITH instructor permission is October 5, 2020 for F2021 and October 26, 2021 for Y2021-2022.
  • Check the important dates for adding and dropping courses.
  • For information on which courses are online and which are in-person, see the York Courses Website. Some courses in the fall term are marked as REMT (remote/online) and "This course will be delivered remotely/online". Other courses, especially upper-level courses, are marked as LECT (lecture in-person) and "This course or a portion of this course will meet in person in the location assigned". For in-person courses, if you are unable to come and participate, you will be provided with reasonable alternative access to the learning activities offered in that in-person component. We understand that some of our many international students may not be able to return to Toronto until October or November. We will provide further guidance to these students soon.
  • If you miss a test/assignment due to a valid medical emergency, please contact your course instructor directly. Each individual course has specific procedures and rules that you must follow, and it is your responsibility to be aware of them.
  • If you miss a final exam due to a valid medical emergency, please follow the Deferred Exam Procedures instructions. Send the completed Deferred Standing Agreement and Attending Physician's Statement to and your instructor no later than one week after the date of the missed exam.
  • Math/Stats has one Common Deferred Makeup Date for each exam period. This date is not negotiable.
  • You can only defer a final exam once. If you don't write on the deferred date, you must submit a formal petition (see info on petitions below).
  • Final grades will be posted online. If the grade is not available, students should contact their instructor. The Undergraduate Office does not give out grades to students. If a student deferred their exam, their grade will not appear online. After students write the deferred exam, they can obtain the grade from their instructor.
  • If a student feels their grade is not correct, they should contact their instructor. Students can also
    request a reappraisal of their exam or final grade by submitting the Reappraisal Request Form[PDF] to (this can result in grades going up or down). The deadlines for Grade Reappraisal are: Fall Term (F) February 15th, Fall/Winter (F/W) June 15th, Winter (W) June 15th, Summer (SU, S1, S2) September 30th (or 21 days from the release of grades, whichever is later). Learn more about the grade reappraisal principles

  • Student Accessibility Services can help if disability related barriers make it difficult for you to access course materials and demonstrate your knowledge and skills. Accommodations are designed to give you equitable access to education.

The Math Lab and Stats Lab, collectively called the Math/Stats Lab and located in ROSS S525, provides students one-on-one tutorial help for most first and second year introductory level MATH courses. Tutors are graduate students and professors from the department. Due to the pandemic, tutors and scheduling for Math/Stats Lab has been assigned differently. Please speak with your course director about the tutors available in your course.

Bethune College also has resources to help students succeed in their math and statistics courses. In particular, there are special tutorials for entering students who need to upgrade their skills in algebra and trigonometry. See Science Summer Transition Program and Math Summer Background Preparation classes .

You can also get additional academic support through Bethune College's Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS). Study groups are a great way to accelerate your learning, especially in the Sciences. By regularly getting together with others in your class to study you can compare and review study notes, discuss and clarify concepts, develop and evaluate study strategies, and prepare for tests and exams.

ALEKS is an online adaptive module that will refresh students' high school math. Students can access ALEKS through eclass. If you are having trouble accessing ALEKS please contact 

The Advanced Multimedia Lab (also called the "Gauss Lab") supports those of our mathematics and statistics courses which have a significant computing component. Some of these courses meet in this lab. At times when no classes are scheduled there, the Gauss Lab is open for general student use. Learn more about computer access at Computing at York.

You can go to the Career Centre to get help with your career development and job search. Gain the skills you need to land the career/job you want at the end of your degree
