Quite often, you may find that issues concerning academic integrity may not arise in your studies in a vacuum. You may have personal or health circumstances that exist in your life, as well. As such, you may find it helpful to speak to a health practitioner at the U of T Health & Wellness Centre for support.
In addition, your College Registrar’s office can provide advice and guidance if you encounter academic integrity issues. They are there to help you in a more holistic manner, whether it be to understand how other life factors fit in, or to navigate the issues in conjunction with your other courses and degree completion.
