Application Procedures For External (Non-U of T Scarborough) Candidates

For students entering co-op directly from high school, or transferring from other universities (including Mississauga and downtown campuses of U of T), you can review application policies and procedures at our Admissions & Student Recruitment website Opens an external site in a new window .

Applicants already enrolled in or having completed a university program will be considered for admission with advanced standing credit where applicable.

Students from outside Ontario will be assessed individually. Applications from visa students are accepted; however, students should be aware that some government offices and private companies will hire only Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

Given that admission is competitive, we will automatically consider you for alternate choices at U of T Scarborough (for regular computer and mathematical, humanities, life sciences, physical and environmental sciences, or social sciences programs) should your application for co-op not be approved.
