General Requirements

Every program requires a different set of prerequisite courses and will need to be satisfied to meet minimum admission requirements. Please review these prerequisites on our Programs pages.

Program Admission Prerequisites

If you do not have the program prerequisite courses fulfilled within an Ontario/Canadian curriculum, you may present international equivalents. See below our International Admission equivalencies chart.

International Admission Requirements

Further Requirements

  • Program prerequisite courses must be presented at the senior high school or post-secondary level.
  • Competitive students normally have a solid 'B' average (3.0 on a 4.0 scale / 73%) in their post-secondary studies, provided they include sufficient academic content.
  • Admission consideration is often based on your most recent annual average, although we will review your entire academic record.
  • Official and complete transcripts for all secondary and post-secondary studies, as well as notarized English translations of all documents issued in a language other than English or French are required as part of your application.

Transfer Credits

If your offer of admission to the university requires a transfer credit application, you must submit the application before you begin your studies at U of T Mississauga. After applying, proceed to our Transfer Credits page for specific instructions on how to submit your transfer credit application.


Canadian College-Specific Requirements

Beyond the requirements listed at the top of this page, if you are transferring from a Canadian College, please also note the following:
