Alternative Admission and Transition Programs
If you do not meet the formal qualifications required for direct-entry admission to U of T, you can enroll in one of the University’s access or bridging programs.
Academic Bridging Program
If you are least 19 years of age and have been away from formal education for some time, the Academic Bridging Program can enable you to pursue an arts and science degree full time or part time.
The program courses intend to bridge the gap between your prior secondary education and the requirements of first-year university courses.
If you successfully complete the Academic Bridging Program, you may be admitted to the Faculty of Arts and Science (St. George Campus), University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) or University of Toronto Scarborough and may earn up to a full credit toward your degree studies.
Transitional Year Programme
The Transitional Year Programme at U of T is a special access program for adults who do not have the formal educational background to qualify for university admission. This full-time, 8-month course of study leads successful students to enter the Faculty of Arts and Science.
Diploma to Degree Program
The Diploma to Degree Program is a pathway to university studies for students attending a 2-year liberal arts diploma at partner institutions including Seneca College, George Brown College and Humber College.
University of Toronto-Mississauga Bridging Pathway (UTMBP)
The UTMBP offers mature students (20 or older) who do not meet UTM’s traditional admission requirements, and who have been away from formal education for some time, the opportunity for successful direct admission to university-level studies. If you successfully complete the UTMBP, you will be eligible for undergraduate studies at UTM.
