Ontario College of Arts & Applied Technology (CAAT)


As a transfer student, we would like to help you set the stage for a truly exceptional education!

We invite you to explore the application process, our programs, and our campus.

We will consider applicants who have completed a minimum of one year of study in an appropriate two or three-year College diploma. In addition to presenting the minimum cumulative average from college, applicants must also present the high school subject requirements (or college equivalent) for their program of interest.


All program prerequisites must be satisfied at the Grade 12 U level. Two semesters of each subject taken at a CAAT may be considered in lieu of Grade 12 U program prerequisites. You will also need to meet the U of T Scarborough prerequisites for your program of choice. Proof of adequate English facility may be required when applying. For more details, visit the English Language Facility section of the site.


The required minimum average is typically a B, with stronger averages needed for highly competitive programs. You may also be considered if your achievement is slightly below B if you are applying to a Arts program (programs that leads to an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree).

Where to Apply

Full details about making an application to U of T Scarborough as an Ontario college student can be found on our How To Apply Overview page.
