Have you tried looking at second year courses in second semester? Depending on what program you're in, you may be taking a first year course in term 1 that could be a prerequisite to a second year course available in term 2. Just an idea, and I'm assuming you're in first year (if not hopefully you see what I'm getting at).
Test it out for the first week or so and if it seems a little overwhelming you can always drop a course you don't need. It'll be easier to pick one up in second term than to drop one for another during first term.
Overall, just stay organized. It's easier to concentrate and stay on top of things when you know what's coming up and when. Definitely doable though; my friend in his first year of engineering last year had 7 courses in one term (yikes).
