Please be aware that items such as resumes, recommendation letters, and personal achievement awards will not be taken into consideration to the admissions process and we discourage you from submitting these types of documents.

How Decisions Are Made

We take many factors into consideration when assessing your application. The marks required for admission are not pre-determined by the University. They vary from year to year, and are based on the competition among applicants for available spaces. This competition means that you are not guaranteed a place in your desired program even if you have the minimum requirements. Preference is given to students with the best qualifications.

When Decisions Are Made

Ontario High School Students (OUAC 101)

  • Ontario high school applicants are assessed in 3 rounds of admission during February, March and May. During each round of admission, updated grades are provided to the University of Toronto from Ontario high schools to assess applicants.
  • If an offer of admission is not made during a particular round of admission, the applicant will be reassessed with updated grades for the subsequent round. During the final round in May, applicants who have not received an offer of admission will receive a final decision on their application.
  • Applicants should not make any program changes before a round of admission as it can affect the assessment of your application. Similarly, once an offer of admission is made, students who would like to make any program choices should notify the admissions office and not make any changes to their application.

All Other Applicants (OUAC 105, International, Internal, Non-Degree, Part-time)

  • Application decisions are made on an ongoing basis once admissions receive all the required documents to assess an application. Electronic document submissions are recommended where possible to accelerate the assessment process. Please do not submit duplicate documents as this will delay the assessment.
  • After all required documents are submitted, including English proficiency and SAF (if required), decisions are typically processed within 6 to 8 weeks.
  • University/College transfer applicants are encouraged to submit current transcripts that indicate the courses they are currently enrolled in and any final grades from the previous semesters. If we are unable to make a conditional decision based on the current academic record, the final transcript from that semester will be required to make a decision.
  • Any documents submitted after the listed document deadline will still be assessed for admission, space permitting. If the original program you applied to has reached capacity after the document deadline date, your file will be reviewed for any possible alternate offers of admission related to your original program choice once all your required documents are submitted.

Alternate Offers

Did you receive an offer to a program you didn't apply to? Congratulations! You've received an alternate offer!

We carefully consider all applications. If you did not meet the requirements for your original program choice, but still had a good average, you are sometimes offered admission to an alternate program that better reflects your academic strengths.

If you have any questions about your alternate offer and what to do next, we encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible.

If you plan on taking summer school to increase your grades, notify us immediately of your intent to do so. If your final grades do increase, bring in your grade report to us as soon as you receive it  and we may reconsider you for your original program choice, if the program still has space.

Deferring Your Admission

If you decide to put your studies on hold, you may request a one-year deferral of your offer of admission. If granted, the deferral of admission will also include a deferral of any entrance scholarship(s) awarded and the residence guarantee, if applicable. If you plan to attend another post-secondary institution, you will not be permitted to defer your admission. If your deferral request is granted, your offer of admission to the current academic year will automatically be cancelled.

The deadline to submit a Request for Deferral of Undergraduate Admission (PDF) form is September 1. As soon as your official, final transcripts are available, please mail them along with the completed form to:
