Academic Success is the place to go to learn how to develop skills in time management, exam preparation, textbook reading, note-taking, and dealing with anxiety, procrastination and perfectionism. Make an appointment with a learning strategist by calling (416-978-7970). You can also visit Academic Success in the Koffler building at 214 College Street.

If you have a disability, Accessibility Services (416-978-8060)   is your home base for support. It is important to contact the office as soon as you are accepted to U of T so that accommodations for your needs are in place before classes start. All information about your disability is confidential and won’t be shared with units outside of Accessibility Services without your consent. 

You don’t have to look far at U of T to find part-time work! We post thousands of paid and volunteer jobs each year from on- and off-campus employers who feel that a student would make a valuable part of their team. We even provide you with employment skills development through our Career Centre (416-978-8000) with announcements, events, blogs and articles about finding work and developing career skills.

The Family Care Office (416-978-0951) provides free confidential information, guidance, referrals and advocacy for students, staff, faculty and their families. You can take advantage of free workshops, support groups and seminars. Our Resource Centre contains practical information on a broad range of family care issues, from pregnancy and infant care to lesbian and gay parenting, from special needs children to caring for elderly family members.

The Community Safety Office (416-978-1485) addresses personal and community safety issues for students, staff and faculty across all three campuses. The office provides assistance to students, staff and faculty who have had their personal safety compromised, develops and delivers educational initiatives addressing personal safety, promotes and delivers self-defense courses on campus, and coordinates and responds to critical incidents on campus. 

Counselling and Psychological Services (CAPS) 416-978-8070 offers assessment, treatment and referrals for a wide range of emotional and psychological issues. 

The Health Service (416-978-8030) offers students the same services as a family doctor’s office and more. The Health Service team includes family physicians, registered nurses, a dietician, support staff and a lab technician that provide confidential, student-centred health care, including comprehensive medical care, immunization, diagnostic testing, sexual health care, counselling and referrals. Services are available to all full- and part-time students who possess a valid Tcard and have health insurance coverage. Part-time Toronto School of Theology students are not automatically covered by UTSU Plan, but may enrol themselves in the Plan during the Change-of-Coverage Period.

Specialized counselling is provided to students who have experienced sexual assault, harassment, or physical or psychological abuse in a relationship. Call the Assault Counsellor directly at 416-978-0174 for an appointment.  Workshops are also provided on healthy relationships and verbal self-defence skills for women.

The University of Toronto’s Multi-Faith Centre for Spiritual Study and Practice (416-946-3120) was created to provide a place for students, staff and faculty of all spiritual beliefs to learn to respect and understand one another. The Centre facilitates an accepting environment where members of various communities can reflect, worship, contemplate, teach, read, study, celebrate, mourn and share. The Centre is also home to the offices of the Campus Chaplains’ Association and offers facilities, such as a main activity hall for large events, a mediation room with a “living wall” for quiet contemplation, meeting spaces and ablution rooms.


1.    Course Load: The maximum course load per fall or winter session is 2.5 credits (5 courses).

2.    Letter of Permission: A student wanting to take a course at another ATS accredited educational institution must submit a course syllabus for consideration and a letter explaining why the student is wanting to take the course under Letter of Permission.  This must all be submitted before the start of the session to the Program Director and cc the EM College Registrar.

3.    Cancelling Courses: A student who does not intend to complete a course or courses must cancel the course on ACORN before the final date to cancel/drop courses.  A student still enrolled in a course after the final date to cancel the course will receive a mark for that course.  Not attending classes, ceasing to complete further course work, and/or not writing the examination do not constitute grounds for cancellation without academic penalty from a course; the course remains on the record with the mark earned, including a zero for incomplete work.  A student is not permitted to cancel or withdraw from a course in which an allegation of academic misconduct is pending from the time of the alleged offense until the final disposition of the allegation.

4.    Cancelling Registration: A student who wishes to cancel all their current courses in the Fall or Winter session, and who do not intend to enroll in any other courses for the rest of the academic year, must cancel their registration on ACORN or notify the EM College Registrar in writing.  The cancellation of registration must be completed by the appropriate deadline in order for the student no to incur an academic penalty.  When cancelling registration, a student must:
      a.       Pay any outstanding fees;
      b.       Return any books to the Library and pay any outstanding fines.

5.    Marking Scheme: After the marking scheme has been made known by the last date to enroll in the course, the instructor may not change it or the relative weight of assessments without the consent of a simple majority of students attending the class, provided the vote is announced no later than in the previous class. Any changes must be reported to the division or the department.

6.    Term Work: Instructors shall return by the deadline one or more marked assignments worth a combined total of at least 10% of the total course mark for H courses and 20% for Y courses.
The deadline for returning such marked work shall be the last regularly-scheduled class meeting prior to the deadline to cancel without academic penalty, with one exception: for courses that run the entire Fall/Winter Session (YY or HY courses), the deadline shall be the last regularly-scheduled class meeting of the first week of classes in January.

All term work must be submitted on or before the last day of classes in the course concerned, unless an earlier date is specified by the instructor. Students who for reasons beyond their control are unable to submit an assignment by its deadline must obtain approval from their instructor for an extension of the deadline by using the EM Petition for an Extension form. Normally this extension may be for no longer than five business days after the end of the Examination period. If additional time beyond this period is required, students must indicate so on the petition form.

Students are strongly advised to keep rough and draft work and copies of their essays and assignments, as these may be required by the instructor.

All written work that has been evaluated should be returned to the student with such detailed         comment as the instructor deems appropriate, and time made available for discussion of it. Any enquiries or appeals about a graded piece of work must be made to the instructor as soon as possible and no later than two weeks after the work was returned. Instructors must keep unclaimed term work for at most twelve months beyond the end of the course.

7.       Extra Courses: Extra courses are courses that do not count for degree credit. Such courses appear on a student's permanent academic record with the final course mark and are noted as "EXT"; Extra courses do not count as accumulated degree credits and are not included in calculating a student's Grade Point Average.
8.       Academic Standing: Academic standing is assessed at the end of session.
9.       Medical Documentation: A student must use the UofT Verification of Illness or Injury Form.  If illness is being presented as the reason for the request for an exception or an accommodation, the claim of illness itself is not necessarily sufficient grounds to guarantee approval of the request. All cases are examined in their entirety before a decision is made:  an illness or injury’s duration and resulting incapacitation are taken into account along with other relevant factors in the context of the course at issue.   Note that the physician’s report must establish that the patient was examined and diagnosed at the time of illness, not after the fact. Emmanuel College will not accept a statement that merely confirms a later report of illness made by the student to a physician.
10.   University of Toronto Regulations and Policies: As members of the University of Toronto community, students assume certain responsibilities and are guaranteed certain rights and freedoms.

The University has several policies that are approved by the Governing Council and which apply to all students. The University will assume that each student has become familiar with the policies.  This is in addition to the rules, regulations and policies in the EM Student Handbook (link forthcoming) and the TST Basic Degree Handbook, as amended from time to time.

All University policies can be found at http://www.governingcouncil.utoronto.ca/Governing_Council/policies.htm

Those which are of particular importance to students are:
•Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters
•Code of Student Conduct
•Policy on University Assessment and Grading Practices (updated in 2012)
•Policy on Official Correspondence with Students
•Policy on Academic Transcripts (updated in 2012)
•Policy on Academic Continuity (updated in 2012)
