Program Details

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure that all students can equitably access the program, the University of Toronto Mississauga's Academic Culture and English Program (ACE@UTM) will be delivered online only, until further notice.

Summer ACE@UTM Online Program 

Newly admitted students who have not met UTM English language proficiency requirement will be offered the Summer ACE@UTM program as a condition of their admission. This is a full-time Academic English Language program offered over the 8-week period. It is designed to prepare students for academic studies in September. 

We highly recommend the Summer program option for most students as it allows them to complete the language requirements prior to beginning their academic studies in September. 

We encourage interested students to complete their registration as soon as possible to reserve their space in the program, as spaces fill up quickly. A waitlist will open up when the program becomes full.

Academic English Course 

All Summer ACE@UTM students will complete the Academic English Level 60 course. Your final grade in the course will determine whether you have satisfied the English Language requirement listed on your offer of admission, as well your eligibility to take courses at U of T Mississauga in the Fall-Winter session.


We are proud to offer scholarships to successful Summer ACE@UTM students. The Scholarship Committee will select students who have achieved the highest grades in the program, and who demonstrated excellent attendance and engagement. 

The value of the scholarship will be credited to the recipient's ACORN account, and will be applied toward the recipient's tuition fees for the upcoming Fall-Winter session.

Student Housing

Although the all-inclusive Summer ACE@UTM option including Student Housing is not available this year, students who are in need of accomodations on-campus during the Summer ACE@UTM program are encouraged to contact us at to discuss possible options. A place in Student Housing at UTM for the duration of the program may be available on a case-by-case basis, for an additional cost.
