The First Year and Common Science Office (FYCSO) is an independent administrative unit that handles the academic and administrative responsibilities related to all first-year science student affairs (except Computer Science) and also provides support to all upper-year students in Contemporary Science. The FYCSO was created to help make students’ transitions from high school to university smooth, pleasant, and successful. We invite students to visit us whenever they have questions, concerns, or comments of any sort. To answer questions and deal with concerns, we have assembled a highly experienced team of professionals, including an Academic Co-ordinator, a Counsellor, and an Administrative Assistant.
Some of our services include
Adding courses to and/or dropping courses from students' timetables;
Administration of applications to change science programs; and
Providing advice, academic or other, to all first-year science students and to all upper-level contemporary science students.
The Undergraduate Calendar is your official source for curriculum and course information at Ryerson. The Calendar is updated each spring for the next academic year. The Student Guide is a companion to the Calendar that lists the policies, fees, services and administrative procedures that you’ll need to know as a Ryerson student.
