High School & Secondary Curriculum
If you completed, or are completing your secondary schooling under one of the following curricula, you may be eligible to receive transfer credit.
A transfer credit application is not required – eligible credits will be assessed and awarded automatically in the summer once final, official results are received.
Students cannot receive transfer credit for post-secondary studies completed concurrently with secondary school if the post-secondary courses were counted towards the secondary school diploma requirements.
Official results must be submitted to Enrolment Services as a part of your admission requirements.Enrolment Services

Once final, official results have been received and reviewed by Enrolment Services, eligible transfer credits will be processed and loaded to your student record (typically between August and October). Once added, an acknowledgement email will be sent to your @mail.utoronto.ca account.
Details on how and when to submit your final, official results can be found under the respective equivalency charts below.

Forfeiting Secondary School Transfer Credits
Since the course work that generates these transfer credits has been done as a compulsory part of a secondary school curriculum, if you are attending university for the first time, you can choose to forfeit these transfer credits.
If you are transferring from another division at the University of Toronto or another post-secondary institution, you are not eligible to forfeit secondary school transfer credits.
