International High School

Science Without Borders students

The University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) offers you all the benefits of a U of T education with the rewards of studying at a small, intimate campus.

How to Apply

As an international high school applicant, you will apply 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.

After applying, you will receive an email acknowledgement from us. This email will outline your next steps, instructions to review the status of your application and a complete list of required documents to complete your application. All of this is done on the Join U of T website.

University of Toronto-only International Application

International students have the option to apply directly to the University of Toronto if they do not wish to apply to any other post-secondary institution in Ontario. You can only use this application if you meet the following requirements:

  • you are only applying to the University of Toronto, AND
  • you currently reside outside of Canada, AND
  • you are not currently studying, or have not previously studied, in Canada, AND
  • you have not already applied to the University of Toronto using a 105 Application form on OUAC

Please complete the University of Toronto International Application if you are interested and contact us if you have any questions about this procedure.

Admission Requirements

For a comprehensive list of the minimum international school requirements, please visit the International Admission Requirements section on the University of Toronto Future Students website.

Keep in mind that possession of these minimum requirements does not guarantee you admission to the University.

Every program requires a different set of prerequisite courses. Admission consideration is often based on your most recent annual average, although we will review your entire academic record.

Official and complete transcripts for your secondary school studies and notarized English translations of all documents issued in a language other than English or French are required as part of your application.

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 fulfilling it on our English Language Requirements page.

Marks & Document Submission

After you have applied for admission, visit often to find complete information about the documents required to complete your application.

Documents must be submitted electronically via Parchment/Naviance whenever possible. This is the quickest and most efficient method of document submission for international applicants.

Official vs. Unofficial Documents

  • Documents received via Parchment/Naviance are considered official.
  • Official transcripts received in a sealed envelope sent directly from your high school or examination board are considered official.
  • If you have written or plan to write the SATs, APs, IBs, or ACTs, arrange to have the results sent electronically directly from the appropriate testing authority; these are considered official.
  • If we give you the opportunity to upload your documents directly on the Join U of T website, these are considered unofficial.

If you are attending an international school that offers multiple curricula, please ask your school to specify the type of program in which you are enrolled and ensure that appropriate documents are submitted.

If you are currently enrolled in the final year of your matriculation program, we will review your application for a possible conditional offer of admission. If you do not qualify on the basis of your interim/mid-term results, it is unlikely that we will be able to reassess your application when final grades are received; however, if space is available in the program of your choice, we may reconsider your application.


The Academic Culture and English (ACE@UTM) program is designed for students who have been admitted to UTM but require additional English language development. The successful completion of ACE@UTM is sometimes a condition of an offer of admission to the university – please refer to your original offer of admission if you are unsure.
