What can students expect at Rotman during COVID-19?

Current situation:

Rotman is currently offering online-only course delivery. Access to our building is limited to essential services only. However, Rotman staff have been working remotely since March 2020 and we are offering a full range of services to support our community. Please reach out to us as you normally would for any support that you need.

Summer term 2021:

All summer courses at the Rotman School of Management will be online. Faculty, students, TAs and staff should plan accordingly. We are making this decision now so that faculty and staff can prepare courses and activities that best provide learning for all, and so that students can plan their academic schedules.

We recognize the huge effort that our faculty and staff are making to provide the best educational programs and thank them for all their efforts.

We also recognize that our continuing students will be disappointed, but all indications from university, city and provincial bodies suggest that any plans for in-person classes for the summer are likely to be thwarted.

This message applies to curricular activities in the summer, recognizing the significant time required for their preparation. We will continue to assess the ability to hold co-curricular activities as permitted by university, city and provincial guidelines.

International students who are outside the country should consult with their program offices regarding potential impact to post graduate work permit eligibility.

Students who are now or expect to be outside of Canada during the summer are asked to contact their program and inform program staff of their location for the summer term.

University of Toronto has announced the June Convocation will take place virtually on June 23, 2021 at 12pm EST. Additional details will be communicated by your Program Office.

We are reviewing orientation activities for the various programs that begin in late summer and early fall, including bootcamps.

Plans for the fall are ongoing and we will be better able to discuss them later in the term.
