Enrolment information for 1B term

You will select your courses in Quest during course selection week (September 26 to October 8, 2019)

All students (except for double degree students*, Computing and Financial Management (CFM)** and Chartered Professional Accounting (CPA) students***) will need to select all five of your courses for your 1B term during course selection week using Quest.

* Double degree students will not see their Business (BUS) courses listed on their course selection page in Quest, as these courses will be added later.
** CFM students do not need to do course selection as the CFM program manager will enrol these students into their courses for Winter 2020.
