We welcome applications from well-qualified students from across the United States. Admission to the University of Toronto is competitive. You will be considered on your academic history; some programs require supplementary applications, auditions or profiles. We strongly encourage prospective applicants to apply early and submit all necessary documents as early as possible; the recommended application deadline is November 1, 2018. If English isn't your first language, you may be required to submit proof of English facility.
Applicants to U of T can be assured that they will not be disadvantaged in the admissions process if they choose to exercise their right to engage in meaningful and respectful civic expression (protest), regardless of whether that action is contrary to the disciplinary policy at their high school.
Beyond the Classroom
Our students take what they learn and put it to work in labs and boardrooms—on hackathons and archaeological digs—and in concert halls, city halls, and the community at large. Varsity and intramural sport is also a major part of life for thousands of students.
