The following three steps must be complete by April 14. Only waitlisted students who have completed the screening process steps may get into the course after April 14, 2023.
Step 1: Take the required Level Check for EAS120Y. (If the Level Check for EAS120Y1 indicates you must take the placement test, register for the placement interview/test (see below). Failure to take the placement test will result in being removed from the course.)
Step 2: Enrol, or add yourself onto the waitlist for, EAS120Y1 and a tutorial section via ACORN.
Step 3: After you enrol in the course on ACORN, submit the online EAS120Y1 Screening Form to complete your enrolment. The form must be submitted within 48 hours after you enrol in the course on ACORN. Failure to submit the mandatory form will result in removal from the course.
*EAS120Y and EAS121H are not eligible for the CR/NCR option.*

Newly-Admitted Students (students who are entering their first year at U of T in 2023)

Students with any background must attend the June placement interview/test and receive a placement prior to enrolment OR have the minimum grade in the prerequisite in the most recent academic year. See placement test/interview details below. Being placed in a course does not guarantee you a spot in the course.
After you have received a course placement OR if you have the minimum grade in the prerequisite*, please check the Arts & Science Timetable to see when you can enrol in the course in which you have been placed. Enrol in the course on ACORN.
* Minimum grade in the prerequisite (if you do not take the prerequisite in the most recent year, you must take the placement test):

Upcoming Placement Interviews/Tests

Graduate students from within and outside the department who need knowledge of Japanese for their research may take a Japanese course with the approval of EAS. To request enrolment, please submit the Language Course Add/Drop Request Form for Graduate Students and register for the placement interview. If placed in a course, you will be enrolled in a graduate course code though the credit does not normally count towards graduate programs. The course is graded as credit/non-credit (CR/NCR); 70% or above is required for a CR. Auditing is not an option.
