Don’t forget these key steps to keep you on track over the summer.

Stay Connected
Keep an eye out for emails from Arts & Science and your college. They will be communicating with you and sending helpful information leading up to September.

Orientation Week
Whether you live on or off campus, orientation is a great way to meet people and get to know your way around. Watch for updates from your college.

Residence Status
If you’re living in residence, check with your college’s residence office for your status, as well as tips and information on what to pack.

Your Offer
If you have not yet done so, follow the instructions in your offer package to accept your offer and make it official!


Planning your Finances

In addition to entrance scholarships offered by the University, Arts & Science and your college, there are many ways to support your financial needs. For more information about awards, financial aid and advising, and tuition fees and budgeting tools, visit the Future Students website.

Financial Aid Guarantee
The U of T Advanced Planning for Students program (UTAPS) — open to Canadian citizens, permanent residents or protected persons studying full-time — guarantees that financial circumstances won’t prevent you from attending and completing your studies. Learn more about the Financial Aid Guarantee.

In-Course Scholarships
If you excel in your program of study, you are automatically considered at the end of your first, second and third year. Find out more about Arts & Science scholarships.

Working on Campus
U of T is one of Toronto’s top employers. There are many Work-Study positions available to provide you with an opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills through paid work on campus. Explore work opportunities on campus.

Working off Campus
Being in the heart of Toronto means that you are surrounded by job opportunities in business, recreation, retail, restaurants and tourism. Start your search at torontojobs.com.
