Personal care and wellness
Academic offences sometimes occur because students do not seek out help to address personal issues in a timely manner. Getting early support is an important proactive step that students can take in avoiding academic integrity issues.
The University offers a range of support and encourages students to talk to others if they need help, such as peers, instructors and teaching assistants, department heads, health and wellness staff and counsellors, and registrarial staff.
The University also provides a wide range of student support services, including: Health and Wellness/Counselling Centres at St. George, at Scarborough, and at Mississauga; the Family Care Office; the Academic Success Centre; the Centre for International Experience; and Writing Centres.
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 visit U of T’s Mental Health website to see the range of supports available to you as a student. Or for immediate support, use U of T Telus Health Student Support (formerly U of T My SSP) (with free counselling available in over 140 languages, 24 hours a day). Reach out if you need help or are struggling– there is lots of support available.
