How to Apply

If you are applying as a current University of Toronto student, please visit the bottom of this page for alternative instructions.

Applications as a current Canadian university student are made online via the OUAC website, using the OUAC 105D Application Form if you meet the following requirements:

  • You currently reside in Canada (Canadian citizens, permanent residents or those currently studying in Canada on a study permit or other visa) OR
  • You are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident living elsewhere (not in Canada) AND
  • You are not currently attending an Ontario secondary school in a day program.

Admission Requirements

Every program requires a different set of prerequisite courses. These courses must be met at either the senior high school or university level. Applicants to limited enrolment programs must also present the required first year university courses.

Admission consideration is based on your post-secondary studies and your most recent annual average, although we will review your entire academic record. Competitive applications usually have a solid "B" average.

A few notes

  • For Commerce or Management applicants, transfer students must first complete 4.0 credits at the University of Toronto prior to being considered for the following programs: Accounting, Finance, Economics (BCom), Management, HR and Industrial Relations, and Marketing.

Language Requirements

If your first language is not English, or are required to submit English Language Proficiency documentation based on your educational background, you can learn more about this requirement as well as steps to fullfilling it on our English Language Requirements page.

Marks & Document Submission

Depending on the educational system, the transcript of grades may 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. 

Once we receive your completed application from OUAC, we will send you information about required documents and deadlines. To submit documentation by mail, please include your U of T applicant number and mail it directly to:

Enrolment Services
172 St. George Street
Toronto, ON M5R 0A3

Ensure that your official high school, post-secondary transcripts (from all institutions you have attended), and an English proficiency results, if applicable, are all sent as early as possible.

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.

Transfer Credit

If you receive an offer of admission, we will assess your previous studies for transfer credit(s). In most cases, this will be an additional step to complete after applying. To learn more about the transfer credit process, please visit the Transfer Credits page on our site.

Transfer Explorer is the university’s planning tool. Check the eligibility of credits earned at another Canadian institution, including all divisions of U of T, for transfer to (or within) the University of Toronto.

A few notes

  • We grant a maximum of 10.0 transfer credits (towards a 20.0 credit U of T degree) to students who have previous undergraduate studies at another accredited university.
  • Students who have completed the equivalent of approximately three years of full-time study or more of an undergraduate degree at another university are eligible for a maximum of 5.0 transfer credits and are considered to be entering a second degree (these students may not continue in the same program area as their previous degrees studies).

How to Apply

If you wish to transfer to UTM from a different U of T faculty or division:

Admission Requirements

Admission will be based on your overall academic record and your most recent year of full-time studies. Competitive applicants usually have a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of at least 2.5. In addition all program prerequisites must be met.

Transfer Credits

If you are admitted with acceptable standing at the Faculty of Arts & Science or U of T Scarborough, you do not need to pay for a Transfer Credit Assessment. Your courses and grades will be automatically retained and remain on ACORN.

If, however, you are admitted with acceptable standing at another undergraduate not mentioned above, (i.e. Applied Science and Engineering, Music, Physical Education and Health) must pay for Transfer Credit Assessment.

A few notes

  • If you have already completed an undergraduate degree at U of T, you may complete a second undergraduate degree at UTM provided that the second degree is different than your former (e.g. if you completed a H.B.A. at U of T’s Faculty of Arts & Science, you may not complete a second H.B.A. at UTM).
  • If you have previously attended UTM and wish to return after an absence of at least 12 consecutive months should complete a Request to Re-Activate Student Record Form and speak with the Office of the Registrar at UTM.
