Academic support

To start their second year off on the right foot, encourage your student to take advantage of our study support services and strategies.

Your student can learn how to adapt their study habits, improve their writing and research skills, and manage their time more effectively.

  • Drop in or make an appointment with a learning strategist
  • Get one-on-one support through the From Intention to Action Program (FITA)
  • Check out academic skills workshops and effective writing programs
  • Learn more about the Fresh Start program and conference

Accessibility Services

If your student needs academic accommodations for a documented disability, whether temporary or permanent, register with accessibility services. Together we can create a safe and comfortable community.

Math Aid Centre

Arts & Science students can drop in to work one-on-one with a tutor.

Writing centres

Your student can work with a writing instructor to enhance their planning, organizational, writing and revising skills in any subject. They can also sign up for workshops and courses using their UTORid to book appointments at any of the writing centres across campus.


Students meet with their professors during their office hours to discuss assignments, course content, research opportunities, graduate school or career paths.


Your student can get advice on course selection, degree requirements, academic regulations, finances and anything challenging their success as a student.
