The Transitional Year Programme (TYP) is grounded in the University of Toronto Scarborough’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 at U of T Scarborough 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 is a programme with university level courses, workshops, and one-on-one support designed to support 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.
