How to Apply
Applications as a current Canadian college student are made online via the OUAC website, using the OUAC 105 Application Form if you meet any of the following requirements:
- You currently reside in Canada (Canadian citizens, permanent residents [landed immigrants] or those currently studying in Canada on a study permit or other visa), or are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident (landed immigrant) living elsewhere (not in Canada), and you are not currently attending an Ontario high school day program.
- You currently reside outside of Canada, are not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident (landed immigrant) and are not currently attending an Ontario high school day program (in Ontario or abroad).
In addition to the OUAC application service fee, a non-refundable University of Toronto supplementary fee of $90 will be required.
Admission consideration is based on your overall academic record and your most recent annual average. Competitive students normally have a high ‘B’ average in their college studies, provided they include sufficient academic content (a minimum of 5 academic courses). Prerequisites must be presented at the senior high school or college level (see below).
A Few Notes
- We accept grade 12 U courses or equivalent, or two full college semesters of an academic subject to meet prerequisites. One semester of math must include Calculus to be equivalent to our Calculus & Vectors (MCV4U) requirement. Statistics or college preparation math is not sufficient to meet the math requirements.
- For Commerce and Management applicants, transfer students must first complete 4.0 credits at U of T before being considered for the following programs: Accounting, Finance, Economics (BCom), Management, Human Resource Management, and Marketing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
