While we look at your overall average we consider individual course grades for required courses.

Within these admission categories, some majors may require additional high school subjects as prerequisites for specific courses in first year or for entry into a specific program in second year.  Please see our program pages for high school prerequisites.

 

NOTE:

  • Applicants to the Rotman Commerce program are required to complete an online supplemental application
  • The "Out of school" component of Grade 12 U/M co-op courses will not be accepted for admission purposes

 

English Language Proficiency

  • If your first language is not English, you may need to take an English Language Test
    • A senior level English course (equivalent to Ontario ENG4U/EAE4U) is required for admission to all undergraduate programs
    • If you are a student in a Canadian high school and are required to present an acceptable English language test result, you are exempted from this English course requirement and may present another appropriate level academic Grade 12 course in place of English
    • It would still be necessary for you to present the total number of credits as required for your province or territory
    • We strongly encourage you to include English in your preparation for university - if you complete Grade 12 English as an extra credit and you are required to present an acceptable English language test result, we would include your English mark in the admission average only if this improves your average
  • The Faculty of Arts & Science offers the International Foundation Program, an option for students who wish to attend U of T but whose English skills do not meet the University's entrance requirements

  • Every Faculty of Arts & Science, University of Toronto St. George student is a member of one of seven colleges
  • Selecting a college is a personal decision unrelated to program choice
  • College ranking is a step on the application, so be sure to learn more about each of the colleges
