Summer Courses at U of T Scarborough

Why take a summer course?

U of T Scarborough offers a range of courses to advance your education over the summer. If you're a U of T student, taking summer courses can lighten your load in the fall and/or winter term, leaving you more time for extra-curricular activities and friends. If you're not a U of T student, you can take courses on a non-degree basis. And we're offering more options than ever before. 

With over 350 courses to choose from, there's something for every student. Other benefits include:

  • Flexible options, including online courses
  • You may qualify for financial aid (OSAP, grants, and UTAPS for domestic students)
  • Progress through your program and degree faster
  • Enjoy smaller classes with more space
  • Live at UTSC this summer in our new sustainable residence, Harmony Commons (with required meal plan)
