Welcome to the Transitional Year Program at U of T Scarborough

The Transitional Year Program at U of T Scarborough will not be accepting applications for September 2024. We will be revisiting and reflecting on the program during this time. Updates will be posted here as they become available. 

If you were interested in applying to our program, we strongly recommend you consider the Transitional Year Programme at U of T St. George. For more information, please see their website: https://typ.utoronto.ca/ 

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 an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree, in addition to having earned university credits toward their degree program.
