Login to the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies Online Application System
All documents (online and paper) submitted in support of your application become and remain the property of the University of Toronto and are not returnable or transferable.
One single set of supporting documents is required even if more than one program of study choice is selected (maximum three). In other words, if you apply to more than one program that doesn’t mean you are permitted to submit more supporting documents.
Applicants are strongly discouraged from submitting extra documents. Submit only the necessary required supporting documentation.
Do not submit any materials (online or paper) to an academic department or to the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies.
It is your responsibility to make the necessary arrangements well in advance of deadlines, notably regarding letters of reference and official transcripts.
It is your responsibility to monitor the status of documents (e.g. received or not received) via the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies online application system and take appropriate action when necessary.
Transcripts must be submitted in two different formats: online (electronic) and paper (official).
The University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies online application system facilitates the online submission of your academic record(s). Detailed instructions are provided within the system. Once you have confirmed your application by moving to the payment stage the system permits you to upload your documents.
You are required to upload one electronic or scanned transcript from each and every postsecondary institution you have attended (including OISE and the University of Toronto).
OISE requires submission of official paper transcripts at the time of application. One official transcript of your academic record from each and every postsecondary institution you have attended must be included in your application. Official transcripts are paper records received in the Office of the Registrar and Student Services in a sealed envelope, signed/stamped by the issuing institution.
Official paper transcripts must be provided to:
OISE, Office of the Registrar and Student Services, Admissions Unit
252 Bloor Street West, Room 8-225
Toronto, ON M5S 1V6
Applicants are not required to submit paper (official) transcripts of study undertaken at the University of Toronto from 1998 Fall Session to present.
Make arrangements to have all required official transcripts sent to you and submit all the issuing institution’s unopened envelopes together in one clearly identified package. The University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies online application system provides a Mailing Sheet to help identify your record; it should accompany your transcript package. If submitting all transcripts together in one package is not possible, transcripts can be submitted individually and transcripts can also be mailed directly to our office by the issuing institution.
Submitting Letters of Reference
The University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies online application system facilitates the online submission of reference letters. Detailed instructions are provided within the system. Once you have confirmed your application by moving to the payment stage the system will automatically email each of your designated referees an invitation to submit a letter of reference, along with instructions.
Be prepared to provide contact information for all referees. A valid institutional/organizational email address is necessary in order for a referee to upload their letter. An email address that is not linked to an institution, organization or business is not acceptable (examples are Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo Mail).
It is imperative to communicate with your prospective referees well in advance of submitting your application for admission to confirm current contact information and absolutely ensure each referee is willing and able to provide a letter of reference in a timely manner.
Submitting Résumé, Statement of Intent, Sample of Written Work, Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Scores
The University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies online application system facilitates the online submission of your résumé, statement of intent, sample of written work (if applicable), and Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Scores (if applicable). Detailed instructions are provided within the system. Once you have confirmed your application by moving to the payment stage the system permits you to upload your documents.
Note large documents (for example a sample of written work more than 5,000 words) cannot be accommodated. Note in addition to unofficial results uploaded by you, official GRE results are also required, so you must arrange for your test scores to be reported electronically to the University of Toronto by the testing agency (Institution Code: 0982).
