Absence Declaration – Updating Information for Students and Connect+Learn Recording 


Hi everyone,

In preparation for the launch of the Absence Declaration enhancement on July 6, 2021, we have updated our instructions to students (currently not public) on how to declare, edit and cancel an absence declaration in ACORN. Please update your materials to reflect these changes and feel free to link to our resources on ACORN Help. These links will be published on July 6 with the same URLs.

How do I declare an absence? https://help.acorn.utoronto.ca/blog/ufaqs/how-do-i-declare-an-absence/
How do I edit an existing absence declaration? https://help.acorn.utoronto.ca/blog/ufaqs/how-do-i-edit-an-existing-absence-declaration/
How do I cancel an absence declaration? https://help.acorn.utoronto.ca/blog/ufaqs/how-do-i-cancel-an-absence-declaration/

Background: The new Absence Declaration will allow administrators to track current, past and cancelled absences with more detail, including date, course, session, instructor, students’ notes and administrators’ notes. The administrators’ screens for Absence Declaration will be housed on the new Online Administrative Student Information Services (OASIS) platform. OASIS is where we will be building new ROSI functionality in the future.

If you were unable to attend our Connect+Learn session today, you can view a recording of the session and you can also join us for another upcoming session.

Tuesday, June 29 from 1:00 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
