Returning students with no background who wish to take EAS110Y1 or EAS211Y1:
Please enroll, or add yourself onto the waitlist for, EAS110Y1 or EAS211Y1 via ACORN as soon as registration opens for you.

A mandatory online EAS110Y1/EAS211Y1 Screening Form must be submitted by August 24, 2018 or you will be removed from the course. The Screening Form should only be filled out after you have enrolled in the course on ACORN, or added yourself to its waitlist. Mandatory interviews to confirm your placement in EAS110Y1 will be held on the first tutorial on September 6. For EAS211Y, the mandatory interview will be on September 10. 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.
Returning students who wish to take EAS210Y, EAS212H, EAS310Y or EAS410/416Y:
Returning students who wish to enrol in an upper-year Korean course, must have achieved the minimum grade in the prerequisite or attend the April interviews and receive a placement.
EAS Majors/Specialists: Please enroll or add yourself to the waitlist via ACORN as soon as you are able to. Please note that the priority period is for EAS Specialists and Majors only. Students may not enrol in an EAS program of study on ACORN solely for the purpose of enrolling in a language course. EAS students must have priority enrolment in order to fulfill their program requirements. The department will remove students who have not taken EAS’s core courses. Non-EAS students must request enrolment in upper-level language courses via the process outlined below.
Non-EAS Majors/Specialists should enroll through the department. The Korean Enrolment Form is due on August 13 and will be available here on July 16 at 9 am. Submit your form as soon as possible since enrolments will be processed according to the date/time the form was received online. You will be added to the course or the departmental waitlist for the course by the department between August 13-17. Please ensure that there is a space available in your course load for the course. Failure to do so will jeopardize your placement in the course.
*If you do not have the minimum grade in the prerequisite and also did not attend the April interview, you may register for the September interview. If there is room in the course in which you are placed, the department will enrol you in the course on ACORN after the interviews. If there is not room, we will add you to the course’s waitlist. See placement interview/test details below.
**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.
