Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Admission to the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering is competitive as each year we receive more applications than the number of places available. The Faculty selects students by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria including marks, subjects taken, and supplementary information obtained through the mandatory Student Profile Form. Possession of the minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee admission. Students who have been out of school for more than five years are asked to consult with the Admissions Office for further advice regarding their high school preparation as they may need to take additional courses to be eligible for admission consideration.

Detailed undergraduate admission requirements can be found online at the Enrolment Services website: http://www.adm.utoronto.ca
