Program Requirements & Guidelines

You may qualify as a Non-Degree Senior Citizen student if you meet the following requirements:

  • Canadian Citizen or Permanent Residents of Canada
  • At least 65 years of age by the first day of the term. Proof of age will be required to support your application. You may provide a copy of your birth certificate, driver’s license, or any Senior Citizen privilege card – federal or provincial.

As a Non-Degree Senior Citizen student, you do not have to meet the traditional academic requirements for admissions, though some courses may have prerequisites needed from high school.

A Few Notes

  • As a UTM Non-Degree Senior Citizen student, you may only enrol in courses on the UTM campus.
  • Approval as a Non-Degree Senior Citizen student is not the equivalent of university admission, nor does it imply future acceptance as either a degree student, or a non-degree student at U of T.
  • If you wish to pursue a University of Toronto degree at a later time, contact our office at 905-828-5400 prior to registering as a Non-Degree Senior Citizen student
