- Both courses should be completed in your first year, one in the Fall term and one in the Winter term. For example, if you completed ARTS 130 in Fall, you should enrol in ARTS 140 in Winter, and vice versa.
- You can take them in any order, but only one Arts First course can be taken at a time.
- You cannot repeat an Arts First course if you have previously successfully completed it.
- Each section of ARTS 130 and ARTS 140 has a different topic, but the overall learning outcomes and goals are the same for all topics in each course.
To prepare to add ARTS 130 or ARTS 140 to your course schedule, follow the steps below BEFORE the Course Drop/Add period begins.
Note: Students co-registered at St. Jerome's (STJ) are encouraged to select a St. Jerome's (campus ONLNJ) designated section (section numbers TBA).
Step 1: Review the list of Arts First topics and note your top choices
- Review the upcoming term's Arts First topic descriptions for ARTS 130 or ARTS 140.
- Make a list of topics you're interested in. Note the four-digit class number for each topic - you'll need that to enrol in Quest.
WHY DO I NEED A LIST?
You might not get into your first choice topic when you try to enrol, since a maximum of 25 students can enrol in each ARTS 130 or ARTS 140 section. Sections can fill up fast, so you will need to have some back-up options ready.
STEP 2: Check your appointment time for the beginning of the Course Drop/Add Period
For instructions on viewing your appointment time for the beginning of the Drop/Add Period, please see the Quest help page.
Important note: The Add Period continues beyond your appointment time - until the last day to add classes for the term selected.
STEP 3: Add your Winter term topic in Quest during the Course Drop/Add Period
- If you can’t get into your first choice, try your second choice, then your third choice, and so on.
- You must keep trying to add a section until you find one that has space and you can add to your schedule.
- Follow the steps below to add your Arts First topic:
1. Once logged into Quest, in the Enroll tab, click add .
2. a. Type the 4-digit class number for your first choice topic into the “Enter Class Nbr” box, then click enter.
2. b. If you don’t know the class number, Click search under the Find Classes heading.
Enter “ARTS” in the Subject field and either “130” or “140” in the Course Number field, depending on which course you’d like to add.
If you use the 4-digit class number, your search results will list that specific topic section(s).
If you do a class search, your search results will list all topic sections.
Click the select button next to your preferred topic. Proceed with the next steps until you have the option to select finish enrolling.
A green checkmark will appear in the Status column if you’ve successfully enrolled in your preferred topic.
If a red X appears with an error message, it means the course wasn’t added successfully, and you’ll need to try adding a different topic.
3. To confirm you have successfully enrolled in ARTS 130 or ARTS 140, look back at your list of classes.
In this example, the student is enrolled in ARTS 130, class number 4179. From their list of topics they know that the topic title of class number 4179 is “Community for Mental Health”.
