You are always welcome to drop by with questions during office hours. I will respond to email messages within 48 hours. Official course announcements will be sent occasionally to your University of Toronto email address.
If you are a student with a disability or health consideration and need academic accommodations, please see me and contact the AccessAbility Resource Centre as soon as possible.
The Academic Skills Centre is also available to all students, and offers a full range of workshops, seminars and individual consultations.
Assignments will only be accepted after the deadline with prior permission (which, except in emergencies, must be requested at least three days in advance of the deadline via email).
Missed tests and deferrals
Absences must be reported online through ROSI, and you must notify me via email with a medical certificate or other appropriate documentation within three days of the event. If you require a deferral of the final exam, you must file a petition with the Office of the Registrar.

Normally, students will be required to submit their course essays to Turnitin.com for a review of textual similarity and detection of possible plagiarism. In doing so, students will allow their essays to be included as source documents in the Turnitin.com reference database, where they will be used solely for the purpose of detecting plagiarism. The terms that apply to the University’s use of the Turnitin.com service are described on the Turnitin.com website.
