Resources for Counsellors

Small group lecture

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.

Admissions and Program Updates


New Programs

The Certificate in Effective Business Practices & Leadership Skills within the Department of Management provides eligible students the opportunity to participate in a 4-month (non-credit) paid work placement while completing their program of study.

Neuroscience will now be offered as a major program, in addition to the existing specialist program.


Program Changes

For first-year students enrolling at U of T Mississauga in the fall of 2021 and beyond, Communication, Culture, Information & Technology will no longer be a joint program with Sheridan College. U of T Mississauga will continue to deliver the Honours Bachelor of Arts CCIT degree.

Exceptionality in Human Learning will no longer be offered as a major program. The specialist program will continue to be offered.

Admission Update Regarding COVID-19

We understand this is a stressful time for students preparing for post-secondary studies. 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. Here is some guidance and pieces of advice:

  • We've updated our Resources for Counsellors page to provide you with guidance to support students who have applied to U of T as well as those who are exploring their options.
  • As part of Guidance Dialogues Fall 2020, U of T prepared a quick video summary of useful updates (click to view on YouTube).
  • The University of Toronto has renewed its commitment to inclusive learning environments, transformative research and a safe, healthy community. Find out more about how we're doing by visiting the UTogether 2020 website.
