Change of campus affiliation

Graduate students are affiliated with a campus (St. George, Mississauga or Scarborough) based upon their program of study but may apply to change their campus affiliation.

Graduate students in tri-campus graduate departments are initially assigned affiliation to the St. George campus. However, students whose supervisors are located at UTSC may want to change their affiliation, if they conduct their training and research on the UTSC campus.

Students in tri-campus graduate departments may change their affiliation to UTSC by completing the following steps:

  1. Go to the SGS Portal
  2. Log in to the portal with your utorid and password
  3. Complete the "change of campus affiliation" form found in the Form Library

Graduate students who are registered in Management at UTSC (MAccFin), Physical & Environmental Sciences (MEnvSc or PhD), or the Psychological Clinical Science (MA or PhD) are automatically assigned affiliation to the UTSC Campus.

Benefits of UTSC Campus Affiliation:

  1. Affiliated students are eligible for UTSC non-academic incidental fees.
  2. UTSC affiliated students are eligible to be considered for campus-wide awards, grants and scholarships.
  3. Affiliated students are added to the graduate student listserv at UTSC and will be notified of events and services that are of particular interest to graduate students.
  4. The Graduate Student Association at Scarborough (GSAS) receives a portion of the graduate student union fee for each affiliated graduate student (more money for GSAS = better services and events for graduate students at UTSC).
  5. UTSC affiliated graduate students receive individualized research and writing help through the library and the Centre for Teaching and Learning’s Graduate Writing Support program.
