Special Students are those taking courses offered by the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, who are not working towards an undergraduate degree within the Faculty. Often these are “visiting students,” who have received a letter of permission from their home university and are working towards a degree at that institution.
Special Students are considered on the basis of their academic record and space availability in these courses. With the limited number of places available within the Faculty, priority is given to degree-level students. Please note that students who are currently applying for undergraduate degree studies in the Faculty may not enrol in courses as a Special Student.
If you are currently located in Canada and are interested in applying a Non-Degree Special student contact the Engineering Undergraduate Admissions Office to obtain a Special Student Application. Application deadlines are August 1 for fall term or November 1 for winter term registrations.
If you currently located outside of Canada contact the Centre for International Experience to see if your institution has an exchange agreement with the University of Toronto.
If you are a student at a North American university and want to enrol in course(s) in the Faculty of Arts & Science on the St. George campus for credit towards your degree at your home university, you should contact the Woodsworth College Visiting Students Program.
