Application Steps

We strive to provide inclusive services that enable all students to thrive and succeed in ASIP, including those from equity-deserving groups. We encourage all interested students to apply to the program.

Admission Criteria 

The ASIP stream of each program is limited enrolment. Students must submit a supplementary application.   

Holistic admissions criteria will form the basis for admission, with the following criteria being considered:   

  • Prior work, volunteer, extracurricular and/or community involvement  
  • Demonstrated leadership, time management and teamwork qualities  
  • Evidence of motivation, enthusiasm, adaptability and resilience  
  • Strong communication skills and sense of self  

The application package will consist of the student’s resume and responses to four short-answer non-cognitive questions exploring the above qualities.  

The ASIP program’s mission is to help students prepare for professional life through work-integrated learning. We strive to provide inclusive services that enable all students to thrive and succeed in the program, including those from equity-deserving groups. We encourage all interested students to apply to the program. 

General Application Instructions

  • The application portal will be open only during the application periods listed below. 
  • All application steps need to be completed by the specified deadlines (see Key Dates below) for your ASIP application to be considered. 
  • The application package will consist of a supplementary application and your resume. 
  • The supplementary application will ask for basic student information (student number, program, etc.) and responses to four short answer non-cognitive questions. Your answers must come from your own experiences and be written completely by you. You will also be asked to provide the name and contact information of a person who can verify the validity of your responses, if required. 
  • Please upload your resume in PDF format and label the document with your UTORID (not student #).
  • To avoid losing your work on the internet browser, we recommend you work on your responses in a separate document so you can edit, spell check and save your drafts. When you are ready, copy and paste your responses into the application to submit.
  • The application package can only be submitted once. Do not go back and edit as the updated application will not be considered.
  • If you encounter any technical difficulties, please contact asip@utoronto.ca.
