How you'll enrol

New Arts students must successfully complete Arts First courses ARTS 130 and ARTS 140 to meet the Undergraduate Communication Requirement.

  • Both courses should be completed in your first year, one in fall term and one in winter term.
  • You can take them in any order, but take only one Arts First course at a time.
  • Each section of ARTS 130 and ARTS 140 has a different topic, but overall the learning outcomes and goals are the same for all topics in each course. 

To prepare to add ARTS 130 or 140 to your winter course schedule, follow the steps below BEFORE November 18.

Note: Students co-registered at St. Jerome's (STJ), please select an STJ designated section (ARTS 130 STJ J - SEM 005, 006, 007 or ARTS 140 STJ J - SEM 002, 003, 004).

Note: All GBDA students will be added to a section of ARTS 130 or 140 that fits in their schedule. You will be able to view which section you were added to when the schedule is updated on Nov. 14. GBDA students have a strict schedule in the Winter term which is why you have been added to a section. You have the option to attempt to swap into a different section if you wish, but should recognize your options are limited. Do NOT drop the section you are in. Please use the swap function only to attempt to make a change to your schedule.

    Need to make changes to your other classes in Quest? Use the swap function - it's the safest way to try to switch one class for another. You can also add classes if you don’t see all the courses you requested. Check the Quest FAQ page for more helpful instructions.
