Admission Requirements

The chart below outlines the general admission requirements if you are coming from a province or territory outside of Ontario. Keep in mind that possession of these minimum requirements does not guarantee you admission to the University. In addition to the chart below, the following should also be taken into consideration:

  • Every program also recommends specific admissions averages.
  • We reserve the right to give preference to students whose marks are the results of a single attempt at each course.
  • Proof of adequate English facility, if necessary. For more details, visit the English Language Facility section of the site.
  • Admission information specific to home-schooled applicants can be found at the bottom of this page.

Marks Submission

Some high schools offer opportunities to earn university credit for work you've done in high school. This would include programs such as International Baccalaureate. After you've applied, we will automatically determine if you qualify for transfer credits based on your academic performances.

Depending on the educational system, the transcript of grades can be submitted electronically or by standard mail. Please refer to instructions on the Join U of T website for the specific documents required and method for sending the information.
