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 MySSP app (with free counselling available in over 140 languages), or call Good2Talk 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-866-925-5454.
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.
