School of Continuing Studies

The University of Toronto Mississauga and School of Continuing Studies have joined to provide members of the western GTA and its surrounding regions opportunities to advance their learning, career and life goals. By expanding the number of courses and certificates available at U of T Mississauga, we hope to increase the capacity for anyone to enrich their lives through continuing education.

Second Degree Requirements

Students beginning a second degree at U of T Mississauga are normally exempted from the first year of the degree requirements by being granted 5.0 credits, 4.0 at the 100 level and 1.0 at the 200 level, regardless of the number of previous degrees held. Students who already hold a University of Toronto degree may complete a second degree only of an alternate type (i.e., if a student has a U of T HBA degree, then he/she may not complete a second U of T HBA degree). Students who are graduates of another university may apply to take a similar degree in a different area of study.

Current students from another division of U of T should contact the Student Recruitment & Admissions Office at 905-828-5400, concerning admission to U of T Mississauga.

Students who have completed their first degree at U of T Mississauga and wish to be admitted to a second degree should seek academic advising in the Office of the Registrar.

NOTE: Students who have a degree with a Major/Specialist in either Commerce, Management or Economics cannot do a BCom or a BBA as a second degree. This is due to the extensive overlap of courses in these degree programs.

Apply for Second Degree

Transferring from Another University of Toronto Division or Faculty

Students transferring from another University of Toronto division or faculty apply using an internal application. Such students must follow the degree requirements and observe the course exclusions in the U of T Mississauga academic calendar.

U of T graduates may not obtain a second University of Toronto degree of the same degree type (i.e. a student cannot obtain a second U of T Honours BA but could pursue studies toward an Honours BSc).

For more information about any of these matters, please contact the
Student Recruitment & Admissions Office at 905-828-5400.
