University of Toronto - St. George


Requirements for International Students

Equivalent Qualifications
For information about international qualification equivalencies not listed here, contact Admissions and Awards for a copy of the International Undergraduate Admissions Bulletin.

International Baccalaureate (I.B.)
The completed diploma is required. In the year that the diploma is being completed, we will grant conditional admission to applicants with excellent predicted results. Final grades arrive too late for consideration. Students seeking admission to programs, which require Calculus, should present Mathematics at Higher Level. Math Studies is not acceptable for programs, which require Calculus.

United States
Admission to the University of Toronto is highly competitive. In addition to having achieved a high grade point average throughout high school, applicants must present good scores in SAT I (Reasoning) or ACT examinations (for admission in 2006, students should present the Writing Test if taking the ACT). Applicants must also present at least three SAT II (Subject Tests) scores or AP scores in subjects appropriate to their proposed area of study. Those seeking admission to Science or Business/Commerce programs are strongly advised to complete AP Calculus AB or BC, or IB Mathematics. Scores below 500 in any part of the SAT Reasoning or Subject Tests are not acceptable. While many of our programs require higher scores, students normally present scores of at least 1,150 on the SAT I’s and 26 on the ACT. A minimum of 1,300 is required for admission to most programs in Engineering. In addition to meeting the above requirements, students seeking admission to Applied Science and Engineering must include AP or IB Calculus, as well as AP/IB or SAT II (Subject Tests) in both Chemistry and Physics. Students seeking admission to Engineering after one year of university in the U.S. are required to present a GPA of at least 3.5 with two semesters of Math, Physics, and Chemistry. Transfer credit towards Arts, Business, and Science programs is given for some Advanced Placement tests with scores of 4 or 5.

Note: No transfer credit is awarded for AP courses by the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering.

French Baccalaureate
Minimum requirement for admission consideration is completion of the Baccalaureate/Baccalaureate General/Diplome de Bachelier de l'Enseignement du Second Degree with good results overall and in appropriate subjects. The Baccalaureate Technologique from France will also be considered if required subjects are included. French Baccalaureate holders will receive transfer credit towards Arts and Science programs for three subjects with the highest co-efficient provided they have achieved a grade in each of at least 11. Students may be considered for admission on the basis of predicted marks in their final year of study.
