Classes have moved online and many students are self-isolating during the COVID-19 pandemic. While we work under these new circumstances, try to develop new strategies and flex your strengths to complete your assignments and prepare for tests and exams.

The University of Toronto has created a webpage regarding the coronavirus that includes answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs). The page includes links to information specific to your campus, faculty, or division. Please check this page periodically for details.

We have launched a new Quercus course, Academic Success Resources, to help you:

  • manage stress
  • practice positive self-talk
  • use evidence-based study techniques
  • build productivity habits
  • connect with people and resources ready to support you

You can enroll for this non-credit course at any time.
