OISE CPL Registration Policies

To ensure successful application, registration and course completion, learners are strongly advised to read the admission requirements and procedures, as well as the registration policies below.

We accept registration and payment online by credit card.

A welcome message from your facilitator will be sent to you by email, about 3 days before the beginning of the course.

Attendance in every OISE Continuing and Professional Learning course is mandatory.  If you miss more than 10% of a course, you will have missed too much of the course to be able to make up the material.  If an emergency arises that affects your attendance of the program, please inform the facilitator as soon as possible.

“Accommodation” refers to any service, equipment, or special arrangement that is put in place to support learners with a documented disability that affects their ability to function in an academic or practicum setting.  Although you may not foresee an immediate need for accommodation, your needs may change throughout your learning.  Please contact OISE Continuing and Professional Learning at the time of registration or as soon as possible at oise.cpl@utoronto.ca with your accommodation request.

Honesty and fairness are considered fundamental values shared by learners, staff and facilitators at the University of Toronto.  The University’s policies and procedures that deal with cases of cheating and plagiarism are designed to protect the integrity of the institution.  The Code of Behaviour and Academic Matters outlines the policies.

Before registration deadline: 

100% refund of course fee or Session/Section Transfer

After registration deadline:

Refund and Transfer requests will be assessed on a case by case basis. Supporting documentation may be required.

 

Send all withdrawal, refund and transfer requests to oise.cpl@utoronto.ca.

Learners may only transfer to course sections where space is available and open for registration.  If there is a difference in course fees, the outstanding balances must be paid to complete the transfer.  If a refund is owed to you due to a withdrawal or transfer, you will be refunded the difference back to the credit card you used to pay online.

 

In the event that the course you have selected is full, you may be able to place your name on a wait list.  Wait lists are not available for every course.  If a wait list is available, you will see it on the course webpage.

All courses are subject to sufficient registration. OISE Continuing and Professional Learning reserves the right to cancel or combine individual courses if minimum registration is not achieved. A full refund will be issued in the event of a cancellation.

University of Toronto classrooms – Cancellation of class due to inclement weather will be announced officially by the University of Toronto; the U of T snow information line is 416-978-SNOW (7669).

Off Site classrooms – Learners will be notified by email of the cancellation from their facilitators.

Some OISE Continuing and Professional courses are governed by external regulatory bodies (e.g. the Ontario College of Teachers Act, Ontario Regulation 184/97) and as such, admission requirements for courses cannot be altered or waived.

Learners are responsible for the following:

  1. Knowing the rules, regulations, admission requirements and deadlines established by OISE Continuing and Professional Learning and for complying with them.
  1. Learners who attend or complete a course for which they do not have the required prerequisite(s) and for which they have not been approved by OISE Continuing & Professional Learning do so at their own risk.
  1. Ensuring that they are enrolled in appropriate course(s) required to satisfy conditions, if any, set by external regulatory bodies (e.g. the Ontario College of Teachers Act, Ontario Regulation 184/97)
  1. Checking the OISE Continuing and Professional Learning registration system for information on the status of their application (if applicable) and for keeping their current contact information up-to-date.
  1. Paying the required course tuition fees and any outstanding obligations, (e.g., material fees).
