University Policy on Official Correspondence with Students
The CHRM Program Office and other UofTdivisions use electronic message services/website as the main mechanism for delivering official correspondence/information to students. Official correspondence may include, but is not limited to, matters related to students’ participation in their academic programs, important information concerning University and program scheduling, fees information, and other matters concerning the administration and governance of the University. Students are responsible for maintaining and advising the University, on the University’s student information system (ACORN, of a current and valid postal address as well as the address for a University-issued electronic mail account that meets a standard of service set by the Vice-President and Provost.
Failure to do so may result in a student missing important information and will not be considered an acceptable rationale for failing to receive official correspondence from the University.
As a student at the University of Toronto, you have automatic access to the Information Commons, which is your passport to e-mail, the library and the Internet.
Once you have your TCard, you must activate your University of Toronto e-mail account. Setting up a UTORmail account is mandatory. Do not forward your UTOR e-mail to other servers which frequently fail to deliver forwarded mail. Failure to do so may result in a student missing important information and will not be considered an acceptable rationale for failing to receive official correspondence from the University.
New students are issued a TCard, which serves as the official student card as well as ID for other services, i.e. Library, Athletic Centre, etc. Students must bring one piece of photo-identification ( i.e. driver’s license, passport, etc.) and a current university document containing student name and student number. Any returning student who needs to replace a lost Photo Library Card or TCard will need to purchase a TCard. To do so, an authorization form from Woodsworth College Registrar’s Office is required, as well as one piece of photo ID.
