Additional Qualifications Online Application System

You may use this system to:

    (Note that a valid email address and credit card are required)
  • Check the registration status of your application
  • Update your current contact information

Application steps

Step 5: Submit supporting documents

With the exception of paper official transcripts, all supporting documents are submitted via the online admissions application. Detailed instructions are provided within the system. Please don't submit any materials (online or paper) to a program, department or the School of Graduate Studies.

Once you have paid the application fee, you can upload supporting documents (and your referees can upload their reference letters).

Only one single set of supporting documents is required – even if you've applied to more than one program. Submit only the necessary required supporting documentation. Don’t submit extra documents.

Once supporting documents are submitted, they become the property of the University of Toronto and cannot be returned or transferred. 
 

Deadlines

Document submission deadlines are applicable and it’s your responsibility to make arrangements well in advance – especially for letters of reference and paper official transcripts. 

It is also your responsibility to monitor the status of documents (received or pending) via the online admissions application and take action when necessary.
 

Transcripts

Online submission

The online admissions application facilitates submission of your academic records. You’re required to upload one electronic or scanned transcript from each and every post-secondary institution you have attended (including OISE and the University of Toronto).
 

Paper submission

OISE requires submission of paper official transcripts at the time of application. One transcript of your academic record from each and every post-secondary 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.

You’re 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 transcripts sent to you and submit all the issuing institution’s unopened envelopes together in one package. The online admissions application 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 be mailed directly to us by the issuing institution.


Submit paper official transcripts to:

Office of the Registrar and Student Services, Admissions Unit
Ontario Institute for Studies in Education
252 Bloor Street West, Room 8-225
Toronto, ON M5S 1V6

 

Letters of reference

The online admissions application facilitates submission of reference letters. After you have paid the application fee the system will automatically e-mail your designated referees an invitation to submit a letter of reference, along with instructions.

Be prepared to provide contact information for your referees. A valid institutional/organizational e-mail address is necessary for a referee to upload their letter. E-mail addresses that are shared, generic or not linked to an institution, organization or business are not acceptable (e.g., Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo Mail).

It’s imperative for you to communicate with your prospective referees before submitting your application to confirm current contact information and ensure each referee is willing and able to provide a timely letter of reference.

Résumé, statement of intent, sample of written work, and GRE scores


The online admissions application facilitates the submission of your résumé, statement of intent and, if applicable, sample of written work and Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores. Large documents (e.g., a sample of written work that is more than 5,000 words) cannot be accommodated.


GRE scores: If you’re applying to the Master of Arts in Counselling and Clinical Psychology program, GRE scores are required. You must upload unofficial results to the online admissions application, and arrange for your test scores to be reported electronically to the University of Toronto by the testing agency (Institution Code: 0982).
