Missed Term Work Policy

What do I do if I miss term work due to an illness?

Please note the following aspects related to this Self-Declaration of Student Illness form:

1. Your courses’ syllabi may have additional information about missed term work that may not be covered here.  Please read your syllabus carefully for instructions.Please review your course syllabus for timelines to report illness.

2. Please email Jennifer Campbell (jac.campbell@utoronto.ca) for all courses except BIOA01 and BIOA02 in Biological Sciences within 48 hours of missed work if you require additional accommodations for missed course work. Please e-mail the 1st year coordinator at biolife@utsc.utoronto.ca if you are in BIOA01 or BIOA02.  You must attach the UTSC Verification of Illness Form or Biological Sciences Self Declaration Form
