Welcome to Your Checklists! This page will guide you step-by-step through your to-do items as you prepare for your university experience. Regularly refer to the checklists on this page by clicking their respective banner images. You can download each checklist, check off items as you complete them, and track your progress!
Your Checklist timeline is broken down into five Phases:
- First Steps to UTM (recommended February to May)
- The Essentials (recommended early June)
- Course Enrolment (recommended mid-June to July)
- One-Month Countdown (recommended early August)
- Preparing for Class (recommended mid-August to September)
Each Phase has a recommended completion timeframe. If, for any reason, you miss or are unable to complete the steps in that time, not to worry! Most items can be completed on an ongoing basis.
Note that the checklists work best in Chrome or Firefox browsers with Adobe Reader installed.
Phase 1 is made up of a variety of topics, including accepting your offer of admission, taking a virtual tour of the campus and completing your application to live in Residence (if applicable). The recommended timeframe for completing this phase is from February-May. Click here to view the Phase 1 interactive checklist PDF. Make sure you download the file so you can check each item off!
In Phase 2, it's time to pick up your TCard and get connected with the campus and its supports. This includes activating your UTORid and student email, accessing course advising and connecting with your fellow incoming class through social media. Don't forget to complete your Residence application if you're planning to live here! The recommended timeframe for completing this phase is early June, but you can still pick up your TCard and complete the subsequent steps when you arrive on campus.
Course enrolment is a huge part of pre-arrival, so an entire phase is dedicated to preparing for it. Note that course registration begins on July 6. The recommended time-frame for completing this phase is mid-June to July.
Your last month before arriving can be busy. Phases 4 and 5 help simplify the process. Be sure to meet the fee payment deadline and register for orientation! The recommended time-frame for completing this phase is early August.
In Phase 5, it's time to tie up loose ends through a two-page checklist. Prepare for class by picking up your transit pass, collecting your course syllabi, buying textbooks, attending orientation and more. The recommended time-frame for completing this phase is mid-August to early September.
