University Applicant

Transferring from U of T Mississauga or St. George

Use the University of Toronto Internal Application if you have previously registered at the University of Toronto in a degree, Pre-University program, or as either a Non-degree or Visiting Student (this does not include Continuing Education studies). The Internal Application becomes available in mid-October and will be made available at: www.future.utoronto.ca/apply/applying. An application fee of $90 will be required. After you receive an offer of admission, an assessment for transfer credits will be completed automatically. For more information about transfer credits as an internal transfer, click here.

If you’ve previously been a student at the University of Toronto and want to return to the same faculty or division you attended, get in touch with your former Registrar's Office. They can help you determine whether you’re eligible to re-register, or if you must re-apply using this application. Note that you will need to pay a non-refundable fee of $90.
