Transfer Applicants

We carefully consider each applicant based on a review of academic transcripts and activities outside the classroom which you’ll report when you complete the Online Student Profile (our supplemental application). If your first language is not English, we may also require that you provide proof of English facility.

Academic Requirements

We welcome students interested in transferring from recognized degree granting post-secondary institutions along with current University of Toronto students across all three campuses. Our Admissions Committee will take your overall academic history into account when considering a transfer.

If you are missing the requirements at the post-secondary level, you must at least present the high school equivalents for your education system completed.

Prerequisite courses must be completed within five years of your intended start date. For example, any applicant whose intended start date is September 2022 must have completed the prerequisite requirements after September 2017 for admissions consideration. If you have completed the prerequisite requirements more than five years before your intended start date, you may be required to complete them once more.

If you have completed the prerequisite requirements more than five years ago but have a science degree in good academic standing, please contact our office so we may advise you with regards to our requirements. If you are emailing us, please be sure to include information such as, the institution you attended, the program name, the duration of the program and the designation you received.

If you have completed an undergraduate engineering degree at a recognized institution, you will not be eligible to apply for undergraduate studies at U of T Engineering. Please visit the School of Graduate Studies program page for information on further studies.

Please visit the English Language Requirements page to evaluate if you are required to present proof of English Facility. Transfer applicants, are not eligible to apply for the University of Toronto’s International Foundation Program (IFP).
