What to do if you are worried or seeking support:

We recognize that the academic integrity process may cause students stress and concern, and therefore encourage students to meet with a registrar or academic advisor if they are suspected of an academic offence. 

If your well-being is impacted, please consider making an appointment with a counsellor within your Faculty or college, or at your campus Health centre. Or for immediate support, use the U of T Telus Health Student Support(with free counselling available in over 140 languages).

You are also entitled to seek advice or to be accompanied by a lawyer at the meeting with your Dean’s Office, although this is certainly not necessary.  Students may consult Downtown Legal Services (DLS), the University’s legal clinic, for free, student-centred advice at any point in the academic integrity process.  DLS has expertise in advising students on academic integrity cases, and welcomes inquiries from U of T students.
