Using the "CR Option" in Economics courses, Y/S 2014-15

The Faculty of Arts and Science has adopted a series of specific measures to help mitigate the impact of the strike on student academic records. They have created an FAQ page. You should check that page regularly for updates -- and you should read all of the FAQ's carefully, to minimize misunderstanding.

The greatest potential confusion concerns the use of CR courses in Economics programs, and as prerequisites.

Please read the Economics Policy towards CR courses taken in 2014-15.

The most important cautionary note to take from this is that all ECO (and RSM) program and prerequisite requirements that are based on grades (e.g., 67% in ECO100Y) will still be based on the actual grades you earn, even in CR courses. Grades earned in all courses are recorded for internal purposes, irrespective of whether a student elects to convert a course to CR.

Economics Courses, Summer 2015

A mostly-finalized schedule of Economics courses offered this summer is available at:

www.economics.utoronto.ca/index.php/index/undergraduate/courses/1

A few points are worth highlighting:

  • There will be four sections of ECO100Y, with enough combined capacity to accommodate any U of T student who needs to take the course (at least based on previous enrolment patterns);
  • ECO204Y is NOT offered. Instead, we are offering two sections of ECO206Y. As always, Rotman Commerce students will be able to take ECO206Y instead of ECO204Y to fulfill RSM program requirements. Note: For Rotman Commerce students (only) with ECO100Y grades of (67%, 68%, 69%), we will waive (for this summer only) the 70% requirement for ECO206Y. This aligns the entry requirements for ECO204Y and ECO206Y.
  • Neither ECO325H nor ECO326H are offered this summer.
For non-U of T students, there is an administrative procedure that needs to be followed in order to enrol in summer courses. This is not handled at the departmental level, and is described:

Note that an LOP (Letter of Permission) from your home university does not necessarily mean that you are qualified to take ECO courses at the University of Toronto. We require a transcript from your home university that demonstrates that you meet all of the prerequisites. For questions concerning the assessment of pre-requisites, please contact Ms. Robbie Innes.
