First Year Science Transition Courses

First Year Science Transition courses allow students to take or repeat First Year Science courses through the day school (as opposed to the Chang School). These courses are recommended in particular for first year science students who have failed or dropped a course during their first year, providing an opportunity to transition to second year with the required prerequisites in place. 

During Spring transition, it is recommended that students take only one or two courses at a time. Due to the intensive delivery of these courses over 6 weeks, the workload is doubled per course compared to Fall and Winter terms.

How to Enroll

The foundation of the enrolment process is the Shopping Cart. It is used in much the same way as you use a shopping cart when shopping in your favourite store. However, instead of filling it with things you want to buy, you fill it with classes you want to enrol in.

When you use the Shopping Cart to enrol in classes you take the following steps to build your class schedule:

  • search for classes offered to your program and plan this term
  • put them in your Shopping Cart
  • check that the class pre-requisites and schedule fits your needs (validation)
  • if a class does not fit your schedule or you have not met the requisites, select another class and continue until all selected classes validate

Once you have successfully built your class schedule you can proceed to enrol in these classes. For a step-by-step guide, click RAMSS Support.
