All suspected cases of academic dishonesty will be investigated by the following procedures
outlined in the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters. If you have any question about what is
or is not permitted in the course, please do not hesitate to contact the course instructor. If you
have any questions about appropriate research and citation methods, you are expected to seek
out additional information from the instructor or other UofT resources such as College Writing
Centres or the Academic Success Centre.
At times, the course instructor may decide to communicate important course information by
email. As such, all UofT students are required to have a valid UTmail+ email address. You are
responsible for ensuring that your UTmail+ email address is set up AND properly entered on the
ROSI system. For more information please visit http://help.ic.utoronto.ca/category/3/utmail.html
Forwarding your mail.utoronto.ca email to a Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo or other type of email
account is not advisable. In some cases, messages from utoronto.ca addresses sent to Hotmail,
Gmail or Yahoo accounts are filtered as junk mail, which means that important messages from
your course instructor may end up in your spam or junk mail folder.
