Non-Degree & Visiting Students

Sunburst Over Terrence Donnelly Complex

The University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) will consider applications from students wishing to study as a Non-Degree or a Visiting Student from an accredited institution.

Non-Degree Student

A Non-Degree student is someone who is not currently working towards an undergraduate degree or program of study, and has no affiliation with any academic institution or association. They are simply interested in taking courses at UTM out of interest or to upgrade their academic record. Students must hold a degree granted from a University or from a College of Applied Arts & Technology (CAAT) offering four-year applied degrees.

As a Non-Degree student, you must still meet course prerequisites and admission will be based on your entire post-secondary academic record and cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The courses in which you enrol are degree-level credits but will not count towards a degree.

Non-Degree students may enrol in arts, science or first-year management/commerce courses, for which they have the appropriate prerequisites. Course prerequisites can be found in the Academic Calendar.

For more information, including application procedures, please visit the Future Students Application Page.

If you are 65 or older, you may qualify as a Non-Degree Senior Citizen Student and be exempted from traditional admission requirements. Please visit our Senior Citizen Student page for details.

Visiting Student

A Visiting Student is someone who is currently working towards an undergraduate degree at an accredited North American university, wishing to take courses at UTM, and has permission (often referred to as a Letter of Permission) from their home institution to transfer their credit(s) back to their home institution.
