PostSubject: Message for 1st Years From Sarah Robinson, Administrator   Thu Jun 10, 2010 4:24 pm

I am posting this in direct response to an e-mail I received from Sarah Robinson:

ALL STUDENTS: When SOLAR opens for you please make sure to register for your classes as soon as possible!!! I can’t stress this point enough.

1A24 students: first of all, welcome. We are so thrilled that you have decided to join the iSci program and can’t wait to see you in September.
-iSci students are responsible for attending one iSci lab section each Wednesday. Students are responsible for keeping the entire Friday time slot open for iSci. When SOLAR opens to first year students you will be responsible for registering for all core and tutorial components of iSci as well as one elective of three units per term (this can be a six-unit term-three course as well). If you have any troubles at all please contact Sarah Robinson (sjrobin@mcmaster.ca or 905-525-9140 x20841).

Are we automatically placed into the 1A24 courses or do we have to register each one on SOLAR come June 27th?

You will register on SOLAR to iSci-1A24 as a whole... though it is 24 credits, it is considered one "course." And this will be reserved for you, so do not worry about 'losing a spot.' As future reference, if a course is required for your specialization/major/concentration (so long as you have been accepted for that specialization/major/concentration), no matter what you must get a spot in it... (this is where administration will bend their back over to help you).

So really, if you are taking a 100% course load, you will only have 2 or 3 courses signed up to on SOLAR (depending if your elective is full year or two half years). And even if you are planning to drop an elective during the school year, still sign up for one, so you have the spot in case you choose to keep it.

Also you should be signed up to Science 1A00 (and the Health Sci skills too, I forget the code)... but because they are not actually "courses" in the true sense, you do not have to worry about getting a spot, as you will be allowed to sign up for both of those at anytime no matter what as well, it's more of a formality than anything.
