FRI Research Stream Selection Process for Spring 2013
During the months of September and October, FRI students will have the opportunity to inform themselves about the areas of scientific research represented by our Research Streams. This is necessary as FRI students will be allowed to rank their top four research streams.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Late stream sort/stream switch application posted below under "stream application."

Research methods students should visit the research groups they are most interested in during their posted Open House Hours. Students can ask questions, talk to students, meet the Research Educators and see the labs. Students are also encouraged to check out the stream videos, available on the Open House Schedule page or the main stream web pages.
2011–2012 Research Stream Handbook availabilty.
The Research Stream Handbook will be available soon for printing and online viewing. It outlines our stream offerings for 2012–2013.

Students must attend one of four one-hour information sessions we provide. There will be an overview of the stream sort process, registration instructions and a question/answer period with representatives from each research group. Students that attend information sessions have a higher priority for getting into the stream of your choice.

Students will have the opportunity to submit, online, their top 5 research stream choices, and a brief statement explaining their choice. Attendance at a Research Stream Selection Information session or equivalent (class seminar or office visit) will be verified prior to consideration of this form.
The priority stream sort form has officially closed. A late stream sort/stream switch form is now available:

The faculty committee responsible for Stream Sort aims for an optimization that assigns students to their top choices while ensuring an equal representation of students from different Research Methods courses in each Stream.|
Students are notified of their Stream assignments and the unique number of the course(s) associated with that Stream.
If you have a course conflict with the stream you've been placed in,
|7||Oct 29th–Nov 9th||
Students register themselves for the stream they've been placed in when they register for all of their classes. Be sure to register for the correct classes for the stream (listed in your stream assignment email).
