Before You Begin
How to apply to the University of Toronto Mississauga
Every year, we publish a Viewbook that provides a concise overview of campus life, our community, campus services, admission requirements, and interesting stories about our students, faculty, and alumni. We have over 180 program options, neatly organized into 12 Admission Programs. When applying you'll need to pick the admission category that has the program you want to study. How do you decide which ones to pick? Sometimes, it helps to decide by seeing what the future holds. Our Program Plans are quick overviews of the many academic and co-curricular opportunities available within each program. You could also explore our Careers by Major database because it identifies some potential career fields related to choice of program. If you're still looking, you can also dive directly into our Academic Calendar which goes into every detail about every program on campus.
While we review your application, we invite you to learn more about your future home by speaking with our students and staff, experience our beautiful campus first-hand with a campus visit, and research the many opportunities available to you as a student here. Here are a few of your next steps:
Approximately one week after submitting your application online, you will receive an email with instructions to access the Join U of T applicant portal. Check this site regularly for updates on the status of your application, notification of offers, and any additional information you may need to provide.
In some cases, we may ask for additional documentation not automatically provided by your educational institution. This may include academic transcripts, English language test scores, letters of explanation, etc. Instructions for submitting these documents are listed on the Join U of T website.
Eligible applicants to Theatre & Drama Studies will be invited to audition sometime in December. Instructions will be emailed to eligible applicants detailing how to submit your audition electronically.
If you are planning to live on campus and want to qualify for guaranteed residence, you must complete Step One of the StarRez Application. The application opens on January 15, 2023 and closes on March 31, 2023.
Behind the scenes, here's what happens with your application, along with a few details that you should know about admissions, our policies, special considerations, and waitlists.
Applying During the COVID-19 Pandemic
We understand this is a stressful time for students preparing for post-secondary studies. School closures and exam delays are affecting both high school and post-secondary students around the world, and there is uncertainty about the extent of disruption we will all face before normal activities can resume. We will continue to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the school year and will be as flexible as possible throughout the admission process. As specific questions arise throughout the year we will update this page.
