VISITING STUDENTS TO U of T SCARBOROUGH
We will consider applications from students who are working towards an undergraduate degree at another university in North America who wish to take a course or courses for credit that will be transferred to the student's degree program at his/her home university. Applicants must be in good academic standing at their home university.
Please check first with your university to see if it has a student exchange agreement with the University of Toronto.
If it does then it may be possible to attend U of T Scarborough on a student exchange, in which case, the U of T Scarborough Visiting Student Application Form is not appropriate. Please read item #4 below.
- Students at universities in Canada/USA
Your Visiting Student application must be accompanied by the following:
- a letter from your home university giving you permission (i.e. a Letter of Permission) to take a specific course or courses at UofT Scarborough
- a $60 CAN application fee and
- an official copy of your academic transcript.
The transcript you submit with the application may be "unofficial". At a later stage, we may request that you follow it up by arranging for an official transcript to be sent directly from your Registrar's Office.
Your home university will likely request that you submit a course description for each U of T Scarborough course you wish to take when you apply for a Letter of Permission. You may obtain the information from the U of T Scarborough course Calendar. The Calendar and timetables are published on the Registrar's Office website at www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar
For applicants from North American universities the deadline for September entry is June 1st, and for summer entry is May 1st.

Students should enquire at the office responsible for student exchange programs at their home university, since a student exchange option is possible. Please check if your institution appears on the program list at the International Student Exchange Program website at www.utoronto.ca/student.exchange
Students from McGill University or the University of British Columbia should note that there is a student exchange program with the University of Toronto, which is open to citizens and permanent residents of Canada.
All of our courses have enrolment limits. An Offer of Admission does not guarantee registration in particular courses. When choosing courses, select extra courses at your home university for approval in case we cannot accommodate your preferences.
