ACORN: Student Web Service

acorn.utoronto.ca

ACORN stands for "Accessible Campus Online Resource Network." For those unfamiliar with the system, it is where students enrol in courses, check fees and finances, transcripts, final course grades, academic standing, and do other records and registration tasks such as making updates to their contact information. The purpose of ACORN is to provide a more convenient, personalized and guided experience for students using U of T’s online services.

Responsible Use of ACORN
Students are expected to be responsible when using ACORN. They should not attempt to flood the system with requests or to automate the process of course enrolment. Such activity may clog the system so that other students may be denied access or experience degraded performance. Any student(s) attempting such activity may be denied access to ACORN until after the relevant registration period. 

 

Letters of Registration

uoft.me/EngStudentPortal

If a current U of T Engineering student needs a letter that confirms their registration, they can make such a request through the Engineering Student Portal. Letters of Registration are $8.00 with tax included. Payment must accompany the request; processing takes up to five business days. The Office of the Registrar cannot be responsible for letters lost or delayed in the mail.

Third-party requests for confirmation of degree should be submitted through U of T's degree confirmation website

 

Quercus

q.utoronto.ca

Quercus is the hub of academic life for U of T students. It is an online course management platform that allows students to access course content, engage in in-class participation activities, submit assessments and interact using a range of tools.

 

TCard

tcard.office@utoronto.ca
tcard.utoronto.ca

The TCard is a student's physical identification and credential for on-campus purposes that bears the student’s photograph, UTORid, student number and signature. It serves as evidence of registration in the Faculty and is used for identification purposes within the University, such as for examinations, access to libraries, student activities, printing services and athletic facilities. Students are responsible for the care of their TCard. There is a fee to replace a lost card.

 

Transcripts

registrar.utoronto.ca/transcripts

A transcript is an official document outlining a student's academic record. The transcript of a student’s record reports the standing in all courses attempted, information about the student’s academic status including a record of suspension and refusal of further registration and completion of degree requirements. Course results are added to each student’s record at the end of the session. Individual courses from which a student withdraws within the normal time limit are not shown.

Transcript requests should be submitted through ACORN. If access to ACORN is not available, requests may also be made online through the University of Toronto's University Registrar's Office. A fee is charged for each transcript. Transcripts are not issued for students who have outstanding financial obligations to the University. The University is not responsible for transcripts lost in the mail.

Student Organizations

Association of Part-Time Undergraduate Students (APUS)

100 St. George Street, Room 1089

All part-time undergraduate students on all three campuses of the University of Toronto are members of the Association of Part-time Undergraduate Students (APUS). The mission of APUS is to ensure that part-time undergraduate students have access to the full range of programs, services and resources at the University of Toronto in order to improve the quality of the part-time undergraduate educational experience. APUS works to ensure that a variety of post-secondary educational opportunities are available for students who, for any reason, choose to study part-time. APUS believes that education can be combined with work, family and other activities and that part-time study represents a viable option for students who cannot study full-time. To this end, APUS promotes the concepts of life-long learning, evening, weekend and summer study and flexible academic programming across the University. The objectives of APUS services are to improve the quality of the total educational experience, in its broadest sense.

Every undergraduate in the Faculty is a member of the Engineering Society. Founded in 1885, it is the oldest formal Engineering organization in Canada. Together with its constituent “Discipline Clubs” (one for each program), the Society plans and operates many student activities and services. It is the focal point for that traditional unity of spirit among Engineering students, which is the envy of other groups in the University and which continues throughout its members’ professional careers. The Society operates the Engineering Stores in the basement of the Sandford Fleming building, which supplies students with most of their school supplies and instruments. In addition, the Society deals with matters of policy relating to student academic affairs and has representation on the Faculty’s governing body, the Council and its working committees.
