I have LOTS of problems I would like to ask…. but putting things clear, is it possible to finish 4th year in the first fall term and not attend any classes on the second winter term and still graduate? Next coming year will technically be my fifth year attending UofT (I know I’m a loser) and I rather end school earlier than later.
well, i definitely feel you on the having lots of problems thing. i’ve got 99 problems and not knowing where my future is headed or how to make sense of my own finitude in an infinite universe is probably 1/0 of them.*
to answer your question: yes, that is possible! if you finish all your requirements to graduate in the Fall term, you would be eligible to graduate that upcoming June. unfortunately there’s no December graduation date (or maybe not so unfortunately? imagine how cold that convocation would be…), but you certainly don’t have to take any courses in the Winter if you’re all done by Fall. you don’t even have to be on campus. all you have to do is request graduation on time, and you’ll have your degree in July.
also, you are NOT a loser for taking five years to do your degree. lots of people do their degree in five years. guess what? it’s flippin hard to get a degree from uoft! however you get there, however long it takes, you should celebrate. putting yourself down will just add to your problems. so acknowledge your success!
*wow, a math joke! who would’ve thought i had it in me? Mr. Chen would be proud.
