Important Information Regarding the Add/Drop Period

Academic Advising appointments for are almost full and there are no drop-in appointments during the Add/Drop period. If you would prefer to meet with an Academic Advisor, appointment information can be found on OSCARplus. If there are no appointments available, students are encouraged to email and we will address all course requests or concerns that are received before the deadline of January 15.

How to Book an Academic Appointment on OSCARplus:

  • Log into OSCARplus with your MacID and password
  • On the left hand side, click “Appointments”
  • Select “Business Appointments”
  • Click “Commerce Academic Appointments”
  • Select a date and time that works for you.

If you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment, it is essential that you cancel with notice in order to allow other students this opportunity. Cancellations may be received through OSCARplus up to 24 hours in advance of the appointment or call us at 905-525-9140 ext. 24433 if the cancellation is same day.

Please note: We cannot enroll you into a closed section of a course. We encourage you to monitor MOSAIC and if your preferred core opens up then you may try to enroll in it at that time as students will be switching their schedules and courses until Tuesday, January 15.

Unfortunately, there are usually no wait lists and instructors cannot and do not give seat authorizations.

If you receive a message that you do not meet the “Reserved Capacity” for a course, this means that there are currently no seats available for students in your category (i.e. non-Economics students). Please try enrolling in a different section of the course if available or wait until the Reserved Seat Capacity is released.
