Following the University of Toronto’s most recent update on the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been recommended to postpone or cancel all discretionary events. As a result, we will be cancelling all on-campus events and campus tours between March 16 to April 30 (inclusive).
While we are disappointed that we can’t welcome you to campus during this period, we will let you know about expanded opportunities to connect with us virtually, and will update you if any plans change. Be assured that we are here to support you through the admission process and to respond to any questions that you might have about your application, academic programs, and student life.
Did you receive an offer to a program or U of T campus you didn't apply to? Congratulations! You've received an alternate offer!
Alternate Program Offers
An alternate program offer is not a rejection to the university; in fact, it’s another opportunity! We carefully consider all applications before providing an offer. Students who do not meet the requirements for their original program choice, but are still admissible to the University, are sometimes offered admission to an alternate program that reflects their academic strengths.
Alternate Campus Offers
The U of T family includes three distinct campuses, each offering a unique university experience, but all sharing in the commitment to provide our students with an excellent and unparalleled education. This tri-campus system means that our students are able to take courses at other U of T campuses, use all the facilities, be taught by professors who lecture at multiple campuses, and graduate with a University of Toronto degree.
While we realize that you may not have considered U of T Mississauga initially, we think that this offer is something for you to be excited about!
What's Next with an Alternate Offer
It’s important that you research your options, ask questions to the right people, and make an informed decision. This can begin by booking a guided campus tour with an upper-year student. The reasons to accept a university offer are often very personal and unique. Let us show you why accepting an offer to U of T Mississauga will help you to realize your future goals.
If you plan on taking summer school to increase your grades, notify us immediately of your intent to do so. If your final grades do increase, bring in your grade report to us as soon as you receive it and we may reconsider you for your original program choice, if the program still has space.
If you decide to put your studies on hold, you may request a one-year deferral of your offer of admission. If granted, the deferral of admission will also include a deferral of any entrance scholarship(s) awarded, the residence guarantee (if applicable), and your admission to the current academic year will automatically be cancelled.
Your deferral request will be considered if you:
- Accept your offer of admission to the University;
- Pay the $1,000 Admission Deposit, if required to do so;
- Meet all conditions stated in the offer of admission;
- Confirm that you do not plan to study at another post-secondary institution.
The deadline to submit a Request for Deferral is September 12. The form will be available on the JOIN U of website > Offer of Admission page.
If you miss the deferral deadline, you will have to reapply for admission in a future session. We suggest you submit your deferral request as soon as your official, final transcripts are available. Finally, if you have already registered for courses, you must drop or withdraw from all your courses as soon as possible.
