A Year in Review Part II: 2014 After the winter break Innis had multiple events, starting with the Chinese New Year hosted by IRC. Then we had our Innis Formal with an amazing turn out hosted by ICSS. Next we had a series of celebrations commemorating our wonderful 50th Anniversary with the Anniversary Lunch, Gala and Time Capsule in Innis Town Hall. We also had our biggest and best annual IN2U Leadership conference, hosted by the Innis Office of Student Life. But 2014 is not over! Don’t forget to check back in the fall, and have a great summer!

2014-2015 Registration Instructions & Timetable Now Online! Check it out at:

Summer Registration Deadline Passed 24 April was the deadline to make minimum payment or defer fees on ROSI to register for your summer courses, if you enrolled in any. We are now in the 10-business-day period after the deadline, and when this period ends, any student not registered will be removed from courses. IF YOU MADE YOUR PAYMENT ON APRIL 24TH OR EARLIER, don't worry -- it will show up on ROSI within these next 10 business days and that will register you. Keep an eye on ROSI to see the payment comes in, and consult with us only if you are not seeing it over next week. IF YOU HAVE NOT MADE A PAYMENT OR DEFERRED YOUR FEES, contact our office to give us details. We can manually register you or manually defer your fees if you make a late payment or applied for OSAP late -- but you need to bring in documentation or proof of your OSAP application, and we'll go from there.

After the 10 business days, non-registered students will have their summer registration cancelled and will lose their summer courses. It may not be possible to restore them. So do follow up if you think you have an issue that needs resolving.

Important Sessional Dates Classes begin for F- and Y-section code summer courses. MONDAY, MAY 12TH Special start dates and deadlines exist for "intensive" summer courses (F1- section). There's a special page to consult: See this link for all dates:
