July placement results - please email eas.undergrad@utoronto.ca for your placement result and enrolment instructions

2021-2022 Academic Year

Please enrol or add yourself onto the waitlist for EAS110Y1 or EAS211Y1 via ACORN. Please refer to the Arts & Science Timetable for the date the course will become available to you for enrolment on ACORN. You must also submit an online EAS110Y1 Screening Form. The form should be submitted shortly after you enrol or by August 6 at the latest. Failure to submit the mandatory form will result in removal from the course. Students must attend a mandatory interview that will take place during the first week of classes. Attendance at the first lecture and all tutorials in the first week is mandatory. Students who do not fill in the screening form or miss the interviews will be removed from the class by the department, as will students who have background in the language. *EAS110Y1 is not eligible for the CR/NCR option.*

*Please note that repeating Korean language courses is not allowed in cases where students have completed over one third of the total class hours in a previous year. If this applies to you, you must take the Korean Placement Test to attempt to proceed to the next level.*

Students with any background at all who might qualify for an upper-year course must attend a placement interview/test and receive a placement prior to enrolment. See placement test/interview details below. Being placed in a course does not guarantee you a spot in the course. Please note that native speakers of Korean and some students with a prior linguistic background in Korean are not permitted to take Korean courses for credit. To find out if you are qualified for a course, please read the program policy.

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. (***If you have not received a placement yet, please see the Upcoming Placement Interview instructions at the bottom of this page.) Enrol on ACORN or add yourself to the waitlist. Only EAS students may enrol during the priority period. You may not enrol in an EAS program on ACORN solely for the purpose of getting into a language course. If the course in which you are placed is a PE course, EAS Majors and Specialists enrol on ACORN during the priority period. Non-EAS students request enrolment through the department. In order to request enrolment, submit the Korean Language Enrolment Request Form. The form will be available starting July 15 at 9 am ET. Submit your form as soon as possible as enrolments will be based on the time of submission of the form. The form must be submitted by August 3. We will communicate with you about your enrolment request within the second week of August and begin processing enrolments shortly thereafter.

*Please note that repeating Korean language courses is not allowed in cases where students have completed over one third of the total class hours in a previous year. If this applies to you, you must take the Korean Placement Test to attempt to proceed to the next level.*

Graduate Students

Graduate students from within and outside the department who need knowledge of Korean for their research may take a Korean course with the approval of EAS. To request enrolment, please submit the Language Course Enrolment 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.

Upcoming Placement Interviews

Please note that some students interviewed will be required to write a placement test as well.

Placement Interviews 
August 31, 2021 (Online) - Submit the Korean Placement Registration Form . The department will communicate with you about the time of your interview. The department will enrol you in the course in which you are placed after the interview, if you would like to enrol. Please note that being placed in a course does not guarantee you a spot; you might be placed on a waitlist. Students may only take the course in which they are placed. Please submit your form as soon as you can as enrolments are based on time of submission of the form. (Note: Students who have no or little familiarity with the language may enrol in EAS110Y1 or EAS211Y1 on ACORN and do not need to register for the August 31st interviews. Interviews for EAS110Y1 & EAS211Y1 will be held during the first week of classes.)
