There seem to be more challenges with academic integrity in online courses. How is the University going to prevent and deal with cheating?
Academic integrity is one of the University’s core values and a key part of the teaching and learning relationship. Whether the learning environment is in person or online, faculty members and instructors will plan their course assessments with academic integrity guidelines as a top priority and communicate these to all students enrolled in the course. Any and all allegations of academic misconduct will be addressed through the University’s established policies and procedures. For more information, visit the Academic Integrity website.
Community and Spiritual Life at Emmanuel College
All registered students are automatically subscribed to our weekly EC@Home newsletter, which is a platform for current and upcoming online programming (including worship and spiritual practice gatherings) designed to keep our community together while we remain physically apart. This programming also resides on our EC@Home webpage. All fall events and gatherings will be virtual.
Where can I find a listing of the courses being currently offered?
You can find current course offerings in the “Information for the EM Community” Quercus site “2020-2021 Course Information and Registration” module. Course descriptions can be found in the TST Course Catalogue.
What’s happening with 2020 Fall classes?
Emmanuel College courses will be offered online. Read Announcements about Fall Semester Classes at TST: https://www.emmanuel.utoronto.ca/future-students/
The listed class times for asynchronous courses may be used by the instructor for office hours and/or study support.
What’s happening with 2021 Winter classes?
We hope that students who begin their studies online in the Fall will have the opportunity to join us safely on campus for the term starting in January. That said, we know that this might be difficult for many, and that the public health situation could prevent in-person gatherings in Winter 2021. Because of these factors, and to accommodate the planning students need to do before the school year begins, Emmanuel College is in the process of extending its commitment to online access to courses that start in January. Further updates on the Winter 2021 term will be available later in the year.
What you should know: Work and study permits for international students in Canada.
Will there be any reductions of tuition fees and/or changes to payment deadlines?
As we continue to deliver our academic programs and student services, we are maintaining tuition at planned levels. These planned levels include annual increases necessary to sustain and strengthen our commitment to investing in high-quality academic programs as well as student supports. Our faculty members, instructors, and staff are using the opportunities of the online learning format to expand students’ experience in new ways. Our goal is for students to continue to have transformative learning experiences under these new conditions. Detailed information about Fall/Winter 2020/21 fees and payment deadlines will be available in July.
Will there be any changes to incidental fees and payment deadlines?
Information about Fall/Winter 2020/21 incidental fees and payment deadlines will be available in July. Incidental fees are for support services and programs that contribute to the student experience and student well-being. Depending on which services, programs, and physical spaces can operate within public health guidelines in Fall 2020, some fees may be reduced or eliminated. Incidental fees are a compulsory part of all students’ tuition, and the amount of these fees is set on the understanding that all students will contribute to the cost of these services.
If I start my Fall term courses and am not doing well because of the online format, can I get a refund?
Visit our Fees & Refunds page for more information. More specific information for 2020/21, including refund schedules, will be available in July. Students can also consult with Emmanuel College’s registrar for more advice about refunds and dropping courses.
I’m a returning student. Can I take a leave of absence?
Yes. How you take your leave of absence depends on whether you are a domestic or international student.
Domestic students who wish to take a leave of absence can choose not to enrol in courses for the year and cancel their registration for the session.
International students who wish to take a leave of absence might encounter issues with their study permit and/or post-graduation work permit eligibility. We recommend that international students consult with the University’s immigration advising team for more information about how a leave of absence may affect them.
If I live in Toronto, can I meet my classmates and professors in person?
Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our students, staff, and faculty. Current public health and physical distancing guidelines do not support in-person meetings between individuals who live in different households. If these guidelines change, we encourage students to socialize with each other while respecting any updated versions of the guidelines. Meetings with professors will depend, as always, on individual availability and also, in relation to COVID-19, specific health and safety needs.
For the Fall 2020 term, regardless of changes to public health guidelines around in-person meetings, no in-person attendance or meetings will be required to complete your courses.
*All students should refer to their program checklist in the EC Student Handbook to determine course selection, and should contact their Program Director if they have questions.
