ACORN stands for Accessible Campus Online Resource Network. For those unfamiliar with the existing system, it is where students enrol in courses, check fees and finances, transcripts, academic standing, and do other records and registration tasks such as making updates to address and 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
You are expected to be responsible when using ACORN. You 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.
Detailed information on ACORN can be found online.UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO PORTAL
The Portal connects you to the services and information you want and makes it easier to interact with your friends and the University. The Portal facilitates connections between students, faculty and staff.T-CARD/LIBRARY CARD
The student photo identification card is a wallet-sized card bearing the student’s photograph and signature; the card serves as evidence of registration in the Faculty. It is used for identification purposes within the University, such as Faculty examinations, University libraries, student activities and Athletic Association privileges. There is a fee to replace a lost card.LETTERS OF REGISTRATION
If a current or former student of the Faculty requires a letter that confirms their registration, they can make such a request from the Registrar’s Office. 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.TRANSCRIPTS
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. Requests may also be made in person or by writing the University of Toronto Transcript Centre at Room 1006, 100 St. George Street, Toronto, ON M5S 3G3. A fee is charged for each transcript. Cheques and money orders should be made payable to the "University of Toronto." 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.OTHER RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS IN THE FACULTY

The foundation of all ECC programs and services is a focus on student development. We take great pride in our students and their abilities, which is why we work with each individual to support their growth into an emerging professional at every stage of their education — through workshops, advising and coaching. Success is credited with intensive preparation for the work environment, introducing students to concepts and dynamics within the workplace and developing an awareness of their own potential and contribution.
The ECC offers several unique professional development programs to introduce the country’s best and most innovative students to industries, namely the Professional Experience Year (PEY) Internship Program and the Engineering Summer Internship Program (ESIP). These programs are extremely valuable to both students and employers. For employers, it means having eager and highly-capable individuals working in their organization as interns and as prospective full-time employees post-graduation. For students, these programs provide invaluable professional experience along with an opportunity to chart their career paths.
Individual appointments, development workshops and employer events are scheduled throughout the year. Support is also available to fourth year engineering students to help them assess and effectively market their skills and identify full-time employment opportunities that fit.
As alumni embark upon their career journey, they are encouraged to connect with ECC staff and counsellors should they require support in their employment-related endeavours. LinkedIn groups and networking opportunities are available to build their network and stay connected.UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO STUDENT LIFE
