Across the University everyone is working hard to ensure safety measures, resources and services are in place to support students, staff and faculty throughout a successful academic year. The University remains committed to playing our part in ensuring the health and well-being of our community and to limit the spread of COVID-19. For more information about the University's COVID response and resources, please refer to the University’s website for the latest COVID-19 updates and FAQs.

Fall 2021 at U of T:

President Gertler shared a message with the U of T community about fall 2021 and optimism that most academic activities will be able to take place on campus this September. There is also an update from the Provost including information about in-person instruction and supports; research and libraries; and ensuring the health and safety of our community. Planning is underway across faculties and divisions and, here in Arts & Science, we are working closely with academic units and colleges on the transition and our readiness for fall term. Our planning will always be informed by Public Health guidance, and throughout the spring and summer updates and information will continue to be posted here and shared with our community. 

Summer 2021 Session:

Due to the current public health restrictions limiting non-essential travel outside the home, all A&S courses and their components will be offered remotely in the Summer 2021 Session, with the exception of courses approved by the Dean’s Office for in-person delivery. The limited number of A&S courses approved for in-person during the summer session are only those courses where the learning objectives cannot be achieved virtually and that meet the limitations outlined by Public Health and the Government of Ontario. These courses will be carefully managed according to public health guidelines for essential instruction to prioritize and maximize student and faculty safety. These too are subject to changes according to public health guidelines. Please continue to check this page and review the Undergraduate Student FAQs, and the Information for Instructors, for the most up-to-date information.

Remember UCheck:

If you are planning to visit campus, complete a self-assessment the day you will be on campus using UCheck, U of T’s self-assessment portal, to determine your COVID-19 risk status based on the latest public health guidelines.

We know 2020-2021 is going to be a different kind of academic year. We will get through it together. From academic advising and study groups for students, to pedagogical advice and online resources for faculty, these supports will help make this year a success.
