Admission Update Regarding COVID-19
We understand this is a stressful time for students preparing for post-secondary studies. School closures and exam delays are affecting both high school and post-secondary students around the world, and there is uncertainty about the extent of disruption we will all face before normal activities can resume. We will continue to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the school year and will be as flexible as possible throughout the admission process. As specific questions arise throughout the year we will update this page.

- Please read our April Counsellor Update email that was sent out on April 6, 2020. It  outlines how we are processing and assessing applications based on available results, releasing offers on schedule, and how you and your students can connect with us.
- Find out more about how the University of Toronto is adapting and staying committed to inclusive learning environments, transformative research and a safe, healthy community.

We value the partnership with secondary school guidance counsellors throughout the application process. We rely on school counselling staff in all jurisdictions to reinforce the university’s application requirements and deadlines and to highlight our admission requirements.
