Course registration

Registration in KPE495S is open for the 2019-20 academic year. Students are advised to contact potential faculty advisors as soon as possible as each faculty member can accept only a limited number of students.

​​​​The application process consists of two separate surveys (Part 1 and Part 2) which both need to be completed in order for the application to be considered complete. Students are not able to enrol themselves in these courses on ACORN, but will be added to the course by Registrar’s Office staff once the enrolment forms are received and approved. Please contact us at undergrad.kpe@utoronto.ca if you have any questions about the application process.
