Ontario High School

Munk Students with Laptop

U of T Mississauga is surrounded by 225 acres of protected green space. Being located in the 6th largest city in Canada, the city of Mississauga, we offer a close-knit community atmosphere while being surrounded by the sights and sounds of a big city. It truly is the best of both worlds.

How to Apply

As an Ontario high school applicant, you will apply online via the OUAC website, using the OUAC 101 Application Form if you meet the following requirements:

  • You are taking day courses at an Ontario secondary school and expect to receive your Ontario Secondary School Diploma with six 4U/M courses at the end of the current year.
  • You have not, at some point, been out of secondary school for more than seven consecutive months.
  • You have not attended a postsecondary (college/university/career college) institution.
  • You are applying to the first year of an undergraduate degree program or diploma program at an Ontario university.

Your high school guidance office or student services office will provide you with instructions and a required PIN number in order to access the application. The application typically opens late in the fall. Please review the Dates & Deadlines page to learn about the application cycle.

Admission Requirements

If you are currently in an Ontario education system, the following is a list of minimum eligibility requirements. Keep in mind that meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee you admission to the University.

  • High school diploma (OSSD)
  • At least six (6) Grade 12 U or M courses
  • One of the above six courses must be ENG4U
  • Proof of adequate English facility, if necessary. For more details, visit the English Language Facility section of the site.

Every program also recommends specific admissions averages. This average at U of T Mississauga will be calculated as: English (ENG4U) + the next best five U or M courses. 

Please note that we reserve the right to give preference to students whose marks are the result of a single attempt at each course.

Marks Submission

Your high school will automatically send your marks electronically to the OUAC and the OUAC will forward them to U of T. Because of this, you can review your OUAC account to ensure that the information submitted on your behalf is accurate.

Some high schools in Ontario offer opportunities to earn university credit for work you've done in high school. This includes programs such as International Baccalaureate. After you've applied, we will automatically determine if you qualify for transfer credits based on your academic performance.

Additional Documentation

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

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.
