It may take up to three weeks for your documents to be processed and reflected on Status Check.

The University of Toronto offers guaranteed housing for all new full-time students entering their first year of university in an undergraduate program for the first time. In order to qualify for this guarantee, you must have indicated your interest in residence March 31, 2024 and have received and accepted an offer of admission at U of T by June 1, 2024.

CEGEP Students

If you are currently in your second year or have completed three or more semesters of a CEGEP program, and have a strong academic record, you may be eligible for a provisional offer of admission to Rotman Commerce. Admission consideration is based on your previous year studies and your most recent R-Score, although we will review your entire academic record. Calculus I is a required prerequisite for Rotman Commerce, and we recommend a minimum R score of 30 to be competitive. 

If admitted, all CEGEP students will be registered in Year 1 at the University of Toronto, but those with two or more years of study will be assessed for transfer credits. The Transfer Credit Office will assess CEGEP academic credits and will approve a maximum of 5.0 credits (5 FCEs). Students who progress through Rotman Commerce are typically limited to 3.5 transfer credits (FCEs). Students are required to meet with their academic advisors at their college or at Rotman Commerce once they are admitted to fully understand the transfer credit options.
