Verification of Illness or Injury

COVID-19 Update

A Verification of Illness (also known as a “doctor’s note”) is temporarily not required. Students who are absent from academic participation for any reason (e.g., COVID, cold, flu and other illness or injury, family situation) and who require consideration for missed academic work should report their absence through the online absence declaration. The declaration is available on ACORN under the Profile and Settings menu. Students should also advise their instructor of their absence. Visit COVID-19 Information for University of Toronto Students page on the Vice-Provost, Students website for information on this and other frequently asked questions.
