Key Dates

Our undergraduate application process starts in the fall of the year before you intend to begin your studies.

Application deadlines can vary among program areas. In general, we encourage you to submit your applications well in advance of deadlines.


Admission Requirements

Admission requirements depend on your school curriculum, your level of education and the program area you intend on applying to.


Supporting Documents


We require transcripts or academic documentation for all your secondary and postsecondary studies (if applicable), whether in progress or complete. Transcripts and documents are not required to submit the initial OUAC application.

You will receive detailed instructions on how to provide the required documents once we have received your application.

English-language Requirements

English is the language of instruction and examination at U of T. Success in our degree programs requires a high level of English-language proficiency. If English is not your first language, you may be required to provide proof of English facility.

Supplementary Application

Most program areas do not require additional applications; however, some program areas may require supplementary applications, profiles, personal statements or other additional information.

After we receive your OUAC application, we will send you an acknowledgement email with login instructions for our applicant portals. The applicant portals will include details about all required documents, supplementary applications (if required) and other next steps for the program area(s) you have applied to.


Scholarships, Bursaries and Financial Aid

Scholarships and Awards

We offer more than 5,700 admission scholarships and awards, totalling almost $36 million. In most cases, no separate application is required. We distribute scholarships and awards based on your overall academic record, with particular emphasis on the most recent results.

Financial Aid and Support

Canadian Students

We have a long-standing commitment to promoting access to education through student financial support. We support you to find financial aid solutions, including through provincial financial aid programs and university grants, to ensure you can complete your studies.

International Students

As a publicly funded institution, we are not able to offer direct financial aid to international students. You should look to your home country for financial aid programs and determine if you qualify for assistance.

US Students

We are a Title IV eligible institution that participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan student aid program administered by the US Department of Education, and we are also an approved institution for the administration of subsidized and unsubsidized US Direct Loans and PLUS Direct Loans.


Offers of Admission

We seek to admit the best possible students based on academic performance and potential. We select students for admission based on competitive strength.

You will receive a decision from all U of T admission categories you have applied to. We release admission decisions starting in February and continuing through late May. If we do not admit you to your selected program(s), we may consider you for alternative programs and campuses, space permitting.


Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services are part of our commitment to maintaining an accessible and welcoming university community. Assessment and financial support are available to assist you if you have physical or learning disabilities, or chronic health problems.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to dismantling barriers that hold anyone back from their full potential. On all our campuses, we strive to welcome students who reflect Canada’s mosaic and can enrich our community with a breadth of viewpoints and lived experiences.



Each U of T campus has a range of housing options that will help you integrate into a fun, supportive and close-knit community.

If you are a new full-time student entering your first year in an undergraduate program for the first time, we guarantee you a housing space, provided you have indicated your interest in residence and met all deadlines.
