Transfer Applicants

University Transfers

To be eligible for admission, a University Transfer Applicant must:

  • Present university-level courses in Mathematics (including Calculus), Physics and Chemistry with at least a mid-B average or
  • Meet the requirements at the high school level and present university-level studies with a mid-B average

High school level courses must have been completed within 5 years of your intended start date. Students who have taken the subjects more than 5 years ago may be required to retake the high school prerequisites; please contact us for further details.

Each applicant’s overall academic history will be considered by the Admissions Committee. Admission is not guaranteed by meeting the minimum requirements as space in our upper-year programs may be very limited. Transfer credits are awarded on a course-by-course basis at the time of admission. Please note that transfer applicants applying to Engineering Science are typically placed in first year due to the unique nature of the program.

Individuals who have completed an Engineering degree at another institution are not eligible to apply for degree level undergraduate studies in Engineering at the University of Toronto. If you are currently registered, or have previously registered, at the University of Toronto in a degree, diploma, certificate or as a non-degree, visiting or Pre-University student you should apply using the U of T Internal transfer application form.

Submission of Documents

Please note that all post-secondary transcripts from institutions in Ontario must be submitted electronically by the issuing institution. To assist us in assessing transfer credits, at the time of application, applicants should submit course descriptions for each university-level course taken.

College Transfers

To be eligible for admission, a College Transfer Applicant must:

  • Be enrolled in a relevant college-level program and present 4 semesters each of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry with a minimum GPA of at least 3.2 (B+) or
  • Meet the requirements at the high school level

High school level courses must have been completed within 5 years of your intended start date. Students who have taken the subjects more than 5 years ago may be required to retake the high school prerequisites; please contact us for further details.

If you do not have the four semesters of the prerequisite courses, please contact our office for further information.

Your overall academic history will be considered by the Admissions Committee; by meeting the minimum requirements you are not guaranteed admission. Please note that successful applicants are generally not granted advanced standing (transfer credits) and are required to begin their studies in first year.
