The Transitional Year Program at the University of Toronto Scarborough, TYP@UTSC, is grounded in our institution's commitment to inclusive excellence. We believe that we are a stronger community when we welcome students from all backgrounds and experiences into our academic community, including students who might not otherwise have access to a university degree program. We actively recruit Black Students, Indigenous students, students from LGBTQ2+ communities, sole-support parents, persons with disabilities, and individuals from working-class backgrounds of all ethnicities and communities who have experienced barriers to education.
TYP@UTSC is a pathway to university for individuals without formal qualifications for U of T’s admission requirements because they have faced barriers or interruptions in their academic journey.
TYP@UTSC is a program with university level courses, workshops, and one-on-one support designed to facilitate each student's transition to degree studies. Upon successful completion of the program, students will qualify for degree-seeking status at the University of Toronto Scarborough, in addition to having earned university credits toward their degree program.
Our application for the 2023-2024 academic year is available now with a deadline of April 1, 2023. We strongly suggest that you apply as early as possible. Applications will be accepted as space permits.
Information sessions are available via zoom on March 22, April 26 and May 24 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm
