Rights & Responsibilities

If you would like to discuss the possibility of taking a course as a Visiting Student in January 2018, please email our office at visiting.students@utoronto.ca as soon as possible. 

Visiting Students are bound by the same academic rules and regulations as outlined by our Calendar.  Woodsworth College advisors are available to provide advice and guidance to prospective and current students, but the ultimate responsibility rests with the student to familiarize themselves with the academic rules and code of conduct at the University of Toronto.

ACADEMIC OFFENCES AND CODE OF CONDUCT
Visiting Students, as members of the University of Toronto community, are guaranteed certain rights and freedoms but also assume certain responsibilities. This means that as part of the University of Toronto community, you are responsible for your behaviour, both social and academic and are required to know what constitutes appropriate behaviour by familiarizing yourself with the University’s policies. The University of Toronto’s Code of Conduct is the policy that covers non-academic behavior and is intended to help the University to deal fairly and efficiently with any breach in the safety or freedom of others during activities or programs at University of Toronto. Offences include such acts as harassment, assault, or discrimination.  The Code of Behavior on Academic Matters is the policy that informs all procedures related to academic misconduct at the University. Academic offences include (but are not limited to) plagiarism, receiving or providing unauthorized aid, or falsifying documents. The University of Toronto takes academic integrity very seriously -- the penalties can be quite severe and may be noted on your academic record.  If you have any questions about the Code of Student Conduct,  the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters, or expectations in general at the University of Toronto, please contact Woodsworth College.  You can also visit http://www.artsci.utoronto.ca/osai/resources for more information to help you understand and meet University expectations. 

RETURNING VISITING STUDENTS
Woodsworth College reserves the right to refuse admission to any returning Visiting Students who are on probation, suspension or have been refused further registration by the University of Toronto or Woodsworth College.  Any previous University of Toronto tuition fees or library fines must be cleared prior to re-applying.  Your University of Toronto academic record will be reviewed should you consider re-applying as a Visiting Student, transferring as a degree student or applying to a professional or graduate program in any faculty or campus at the University of Toronto.

YOUR OFFICIAL RECORD
Grades are Permanent Records.  Your University of Toronto academic record contains not only your registration and enrolment information, but your grades, results of any petitions, medical information related to your academic progress, and any letters of reference submitted on your behalf.  Please be advised that University of Toronto grades, regardless of whether they are formally transferred back to your home university, will permanently remain on your University of Toronto academic record.  This academic record will be reviewed should you consider re-applying as a Visiting Student, transferring as a degree student or applying to a professional or graduate program in any faculty or campus at the University of Toronto.

All courses taken, except those officially cancelled, will remain on your permanent record regardless of whether the grade is officially transferred back to your home university.
