Post-Registration Information
Introduction and General Information
As per University policy on ancillary fees, the University,
through its operating budget, is responsible for the delivery
of an academic program, but the students are expected
to purchase the additional materials required for the
program. As far as possible, most of the compulsory fees
related to course material, class notes, field trips, etc, will
be collected on your fees invoice prior to the field trips, or
before the beginning of the relevant class.
The Graduate Students Information booklet from the
School of Graduate Studies is mailed to all new students
in July. If you did not receive this information, or for
continuing students, please note that the instructions are
available on the SGS website: www.sgs.utoronto.ca.
Please refer to the Fees Department website: www.fees.
utoronto.ca. Student Accounts Office of the Financial
Services Department has revised the registration invoice
process. The Fees Department are expecting students to
view instructions on the Student Accounts website, view
their account on the Student Web Service and then make
payment. Fees assessment is scheduled for July 15th and
fee charges are available on student accounts (ROSI) after
that date.
The Student Accounts Office has been advised that a paper
remittance slip is no longer needed for students making
payments at the teller in the major banks. A printout
of the ROSI account in invoice format is sufficient for
student account identification for bank processing of these
payments. Payments at a bank machine or by telephone or
on-line banking do not require a paper invoice.
Students must pay fees by August 26 in order to be
registered in the Program.
If you need further information, please contact the
Daniels Faculty at 416-978-5038.
To assist you in your planning, we have attached important
registration documents. Read everything carefully and let
us know if you have any questions.

Please note that the Winter course registration information
will be posted on the website during November 2011.
Students are expected to use the studio facilities at all
times. Each student is provided with a workspace. During
the academic year students will have 24-hour access to
the building and studios. Students will also have access to
computing, audio-visual, and workshop facilities at specific
times.
A compulsory fee is charged for use of these facilities. The
fees have been charged to your fees account. Please see
details as outlined on your fees invoice.
Upon payment of your fees, if you already have a FOB that
was issued to you last year (2010-2011), your FOB will
be re-activated; all other students who are entering the
program will be issued a fob, which will provide access to
the building and studio floors.
You must see the Daniels Faculty front desk to pick up
your FOB starting September 6th.

LETTER FROM THE PROGRAM
DIRECTOR
PROGRAM OVERVIEW
We are looking forward to your arrival or return to Daniels
this Fall. I am especially excited to have the opportunity to
serve as your Director of Architecture this year, a reprise of
my term as Director from 2007-08.
I will be holding year-specific welcome meetings with
each of you on Friday September 9th. Please see your
respective section for details on these meetings.
The Daniels Faculty has recently completed a two-year
process of curriculum discussions, and I am happy to
announce that we have been approved to introduce
several minor improvements this year. In particular,
these are occurring in Visual Communication and Thesis.
For example, core VC courses will occur in a workshop
format and will be concentrated during the weeks of
September 12 16 and October 24 28. In the following
year, we will be rolling out improvements in our History
& Theory sequence and the Technical course stream, to
complement recent hires in this respect. We have also
explored opportunistic partnerships with the MLA and
MUD sequence, which we will begin to incorporate into our
core curriculum.
At a public level, we will continue to offer an impressive
slate of public programs, consisting of public fora,
lectures, midday talks, and exhibitions. Also we will be
expanding and building on the successes of both the
Global Architecture and PEP program this year. These
opportunities and events are unique to our Faculty, and
remain an essential and key aspect of your education
as an architect. Our series of Fall Thesis students will be
making public presentations to launch their thesis term of
September 19 and 20, which you are all invited to attend.
Until your return, I hope you are having a productive and
enjoyable summer. I am looking forward to seeing you all
in a few weeks. In the meantime, if you find yourself with
questions about the program, please let me know. You can
reach me by e-mail at mason.white@daniels.utoronto.ca, or
through Daisy Lyman, our Programs Officer, at programs@
daniels.utoronto.ca.
Mason White
Director, Master of Architecture Program
Daniels offers two degree options in the Master of
Architecture (MArch): a first professional program and a
post-professional option.
The professional Master of Architecture is a rigorous and
comprehensive program, preparing graduates for the full
range of activities in architecture. It provides a thorough
base of knowledge in history, theory, technology, ecology,
society, and professional practice, while developing skills
in design through an intensive sequence of design studio
courses. There are five streams: Design (8 courses), Visual
Communication (2 courses), History & Theory (2 courses),
Technics & Planning (7 courses), and Professional Practice
(2 courses). Studios are supported by courses in visual
communication, architectural representation, and new
media. Students are encouraged to use their electives to
explore a specialization in preparation for their design
thesis. The program aims to develop critical, creative,
and independent thinking and research that responds to
current design issues and societal change. The greater
Toronto region is used as an urban laboratory for the
pursuit of new knowledge and new forms of practice.
The post-professional Master of Architecture is an
advanced design and research option for individuals
already holding a professional degree in architecture.
This option provides a challenging and rigorous forum for
those wishing to extend and focus their previous education
in architecture. It seeks a diverse range of applicants,
particularly those holding the promise of professional and
academic leadership.
Successful applicants declare a specific research interest
and structure an integrated course of study that includes
option studios, seminars, electives, and independent study
projects. The program culminates in a thesis project that
can be either design or research oriented. Students work
closely with faculty advisors with expertise in their area
of research, and gain insight from leading practitioners,
theorists, and guest critics. In the last four years, visiting
professors and critics to Daniels have included: Eric
Bunge/nARCHITECTS, Mithcell Joachim, Keller Easterling,
Merrill Elam, Siamak Hariri, Bruce Kuwabara, Diane Lewis,
Daniel Libeskind, Thom Mayne, Michael Sorkin, Stephen
Teeple, Nader Tehrani, Anthony Vidler, Sarah Whiting, and
many others.
Students in the post-professional MArch may also
enhance their studies through participation in Daniels
Global Architecture and Professional Experience
programs. Daniels provides an exceptional professional
and intellectual locus for the exploration of essential
topics in contemporary architecture. Design and research
opportunities foster innovative and critical approaches to
architectural design and to the theories and technologies
that shape the built environment.

LETTER FROM THE PROGRAM
DIRECTOR
PROGRAM OVERVIEW
We are looking forward to your arrival and return to the
coming Fall term in the Master of Urban Design program.
In anticipation of this new term, I would like to inform
you of a few items that will help ease the start of your
academic year.
To begin the term, I would like to have a brief meeting with
all of you (MUD1 and MUD2) on September 12 from 1:00-
2:00pm in Room 106. Besides getting us all acquainted
with one another, we will discuss the structure and content
of the coming year.
For new students that are looking for advance preparation
to this first term. In terms of technical skills: this is a
good time to sharpen or advance your skills in digital
drawing and visualization programs such as AutoCad
and Rhinoceros, along with Photoshop, Illustrator and
InDesign. In terms of reading: reverberating throughout
the Master of Urban Design program is of course the
subject of the city, with Toronto figuring largely within the
curriculum particularly in the first term. In preparation,
we recommend The Shape of the City: Toronto Struggles
with Modern Planning by John Sewell. And while you will
have a suggested reading list in your first urban design
studio, Urban Design, edited by Alex Krieger and William
S. Saunders discusses, through a series of essays, the
emergence of urban design as well as the current state of
the field.
I look forward to seeing you all very soon. Please feel free
to contact me with any questions.
Sincerely,
Carol Moukheiber
Director, Master of Urban Design Progam
carol.moukheiber@daniels.utoronto.ca
The Master of Urban Design (MUD) program prepares
architects and landscape architects for design-based
research and professional practice at the urban and
regional scales.
The MUD curriculum capitalizes on the wealth of resources
at the University of Toronto to establish interdisciplinary
and inter-professional collaboration, initiating forms of
research and practice that are suited to the breadth of
urban design. The program also draws on the largest pool
of expertise and talent in Canada by involving leading
figures of the Toronto urban design community in teaching,
external reviews, and special events.
The MUD program is committed to design as a primary
medium of operation and research, in a broad intellectual
framework that includes geography, environmental
studies, social sciences, media studies, economics, and
engineering. It aims for responsible and creative design in
the context of the post-metropolis, with attention to new
paradigms of urbanization, global economic restructuring,
and information technology. The program emphasizes
a coherent intellectual approach that is committed to
analysis and critique and seeks to become the central
Canadian forum for advanced research, design innovation,
scholarship, criticism, and debate in urban design.

Students entering final term of the graduate program:
The length of the program into which a student is admitted
pre-determines the minimum total academic fee that a
student must pay prior to graduation.
Students who undertake their studies on a part-time
basis are required to pay at least the same amount of
tuition for their degree as a full-time student. Many part-
time students must pay a balance of degree fee prior to
graduation.
Full-time students who accelerate their programs and
finish the degree requirements in less time than the
normal program length must also pay a balance of degree
fee.
At the time of graduation the balance of degree fee is
calculated by subtracting the total minimum academic
fees paid by the student from the program fee.
If a student has paid more than the full-time program fee
due to the time taken to complete the degree requirements
there will be no refund of fees.
Please visit the SGS website for more information:
http://www.sgs.utoronto.ca/informationfor/students/

BALANCE OF DEGREE FEE FALL OPTION STUDIOS
Option studio presentations will take place on Friday,
September 9th from 9am -12 noon in room 103. Balloting
will take place following the presentations; the results will

INFORMATION ON COURSE
ENROLMENT
Graduate students in the John H. Daniels Faculty of
Architecture, Landscape, and Design are able to access
the student web service to change personal information
(addresses and telephone numbers), view their academic
record and current courses and to enrol in, request or drop
courses.
GENERAL INFORMATION
Student Responsibility
While academic advisors, faculty and staff are available
to assist and advise, it is ultimately the students
responsibility to keep personal and academic information
up to date at all times and to follow all University, SGS,
departmental and program regulations, requirements
and deadlines. The student web service makes it easier
for students to check and correct this information. If
questions arise about requirements, policies and
procedures, students are responsible for seeking answers
for these questions from staff and advisors.
Note: the Faculty and other university offices may send
important information to you by email. Please make sure
that your email address, your mailing/permanent address
and telephone number are up to date at all times. Under
University policy, students are required to maintain a
University based email account (e.g., UTOR, ECF, CHASS,
OISE), record it in ROSI, and regularly check for messages.
That account may be forwarded to another personal
account but it is the University account to which the
University will send official correspondence. New students
are advised to validate their UTORID at the University
Library early. The UTORID provides access not only to
the @utoronto.ca email account but also to Blackboard,
the Universitys student portal and learning management
system. Many courses use the portal to provide online
materials, discussion groups, quizzes etc. It is also used
by the University and various student groups to make
important announcements and administer elections.
Declaration
Use of the SWS to enrol in courses means that you agree
to abide by all of the academic and non-academic rules
and regulations of the University, the School of Graduate
Studies and graduate unit in which you are registered,
and assume the obligation to pay academic and incidental
fees according to the policies and requirements of the
University of Toronto. You normally use the SWS to add
or cancel courses. If, for extraordinary reasons, you are
unable to use the SWS contact your graduate unit as soon
as possible.
Users of the Student Web Service are expected to be
responsible when using the SWS and should not attempt
to flood the system with requests, or to automate the
process of course enrolment. Such activity may clog the
system so that other students may be denied access
or experience degraded performance. Any student(s)
attempting such activity may be denied access to the SWS
until after the relevant registration period.
Personal Identification Number
Each time a student accesses ROSI via the web a personal
identification is required in addition to a student number.
The first time the system is accessed this will be derived
from the students date of birth (format YYYYMMDD).
However, at that point the student will be required to
change the PIN. Subsequent access to the system will
require this new number which should be known only
to the student. The PIN and student number together
constitute an electronic signature. Never give your PIN
or student number to someone else.
Forgotten PIN numbers can be reset by the graduate office.
To avoid having to contact the office in person or having to
wait for office hours, students can enter answers to a set
of questions on the SWS. When they first access the ROSI,
the SWS will prompt students to choose three questions
from a list. If at a later date the student forgets the PIN,
the PIN can be reset online if two of the three questions
are answered correctly.

Updating & Checking Personal Information
Students may view or update their address, telephone
number or email address through the Student Web
Service. When entering new information, the add option
should be used. Change should only be used to correct
information in an otherwise correct record (e.g. typos).
Students can also check other personal information
(immigration status, title etc). As immigration status
affects fees, all students are advised to check this
information at the beginning of each year.

Request to Register Without Payment (Deferrals) for
OSAP, CSL and US student Loan recipients
Students who have received notification of an award
through the Ontario Student Assistance Program for their
U of T program may make their fees arrangements through
the SWS up to the registration deadline instead of having
to appear at SGS, if the amount of the loan covers the
minimum payment and no outstanding fees are owing.
Students still must appear in person to pick up their OSAP
documents as soon as possible after registration. The
online arrangements may also be available for recipients
of Canada Student Loans and some US government loans.
Please see the Office of Student Accounts website (www.
fees.utoronto.ca) for details.
Requesting Courses
Required courses are preloaded to students records in
the Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban
Design programs. Optional courses (electives) may be
added through the Student Web Service beginning at 2pm
on September 8, 2011.
All course requests (requests for independent studies and
courses outside the Department) must be approved by
the appropriate Program Director. Students must submit
their independent study request no later than September
19, 2011. Courses will be approved or refused before the
last date to add courses (September 26). Students should
check ROSI for their course status before the last date to
drop courses (October 31).
The web service requires full information about a course
when a request is being made. Please consult the
attached lists from your department. Be sure to enter:
Course number: e.g. HIS2651Y
Section Code: usually F, S or Y. This indicates whether the
course is offered in the fall session (F), the winter session,
i.e., second term (S) or over both (Y).
Teaching Method: all graduate courses have a teaching
method of LEC (lecture).
Teaching Section: the number of the class. Most graduate
courses only have one teaching session (0101). Although
there may be only one teaching section the information
must still be entered on the system.
NB. Some courses may require instructors approval
in addition to that given by the co-ordinator/academic
advisor.
Courses from outside the department
Not all graduate departments allow students to enrol in
courses via the web. Before attempting to add a course
outside your department check with your department and
the host department about procedures.
Waiting Lists
Not all courses or meeting sections have waiting lists. If
the department offering the course has opted to allow
a waitlist and either your enrolment category in the
course or the course itself is full you can choose to join
a waiting list. If a space is opened in your category then
ROSI will automatically place you in the course. It is
your responsibility to check the SWS to check on your
status. The SWS will inform you of your place on the
waiting list and how many spaces are allotted for your
category. You may wait in multiple meeting sections but
if you are enrolled in one meeting section you may not
simultaneously wait for another. Your unit may set a limit
on the number of waitlisted course in your requests. One
day before the final date to enrol in courses all waiting
lists will be suspended and normal enrolment procedures
will apply. Consult your own unit to find out if you are
permitted to join waiting lists. Consult the unit offering the
course to see if a waiting list is being used.
Checking course status
Students are responsible for knowing the status of their
course requests at all times. This information can be
obtained via the web service. The following are the
possible statuses:
REQ: Course requested. Must be resolved/approved by
the last date to add a course.
INT: Course requested pending instructor approval in
addition to co-ordinators/advisors approval.
APP: Request approved. Student is enrolled in course.
REF: Request denied. Student is not enrolled and
may not make another request for this course via the web
during this session.
CAN: Course cancelled (student withdrew from course
before deadline)
WAIT: No room in the meeting section. Student has
been placed on a waiting list based on category and will be
enrolled automatically if space comes available.
DWAIT: Student has cancelled place on the waiting list or
been removed.
Cancelling or withdrawing from courses
Students may cancel or withdraw from individual courses
using the web service up to certain deadline dates. Before
doing this however, students are advised to consult with
their advisor or departmental office. Please note that
withdrawing from all your courses does not constitute
a withdrawal from your program. To do so, you must
complete a Program Withdrawal Form. Dropping courses
prior to deadlines
or withdrawing from a program without academic penalty
