Your Timeline


Navigating This Page

Welcome to Your Timeline! This page will guide you step-by-step through the to-do items in preparation for your university experience. Regularly refer to the checklists on this page by clicking their respective photso. You can download each checklist, check off items as you complete them, and track your progress!

Your Timeline is broken down into 5 Phases:

  1. First Steps to UTM (recommended February to May)
  2. The Essentials (recommended early June)
  3. Course Enrolment (recommended mid-June to July)
  4. One-Month Countdown (recommended early August)
  5. 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: First Steps to UTM

Phase 1 is made up of a variety of topics, including accepting your offer of admission, taking a 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.

Phase 2: The Essentials

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.
