Course Enrolment: Many of the undergraduate courses offered by the School have enrolment controls (i.e. are "P", "PE" or "E" courses). For "PE" and "E" courses, the School gives priority to students in its own programs during both the first and second rounds of course enrolment, so please email the Undergraduate Student Advisor if you are unable to enrol in a "PE" course in the first round of course enrolments, or need to enrol in an "E" course in either round of course enrolments.
