mysterious impossible courses

Hi! I was looking at summer courses, and I came across CSC207H1Y. Would students have gotten a half-credit or a full credit? How would this impact their eligibility for a summer work-study position? Thanks.


hey there,

i think you misread the course code there, chum. i see a CSC207H1 on the 2014 summer timetable, but no CSC207H1Y.

and it’s a good thing, too, because ‘H1Y’ is not a thing (at least, in the faculty of arts & science – not true for the faculty of engineering, or for certain independent studies courses in artsci).

you can’t be in a half-year course and a full-year course at the same time. unless you’re cheating.

anyway, if you’re in a half-year course, you’d need to pick up at least 0.5 more credits over the summer to be eligible for work-study.

    hey! This isn’t true… Screenwriting (CIN349H1Y) is totally a thing. It just means that you get a half credit for a year of work. Either you’re taught every other week, or just for the first semester, then you work independently.

    CIN349H1Y (Screenwriting) exists. Youre either taught every other week or only for the first week, then you work independently.

    Thank you! That’s great to know. As soon as I published this I got bombarded with exceptions to the rule – thanks for keeping me on top of things 😉

    FYI, all CSC courses(H Courses) in summer are taught similarly to the half term length in a regular year. This is because of the way the assignments/exercises are structured in CSC courses. It would not be possible to do it in condensed 2 month summer courses.
