So you’ve applied – what’s next? If you’ve already completed the following steps, you’re on your way!
Your official application must be accurate and complete. If there is a timeframe where you were registered at a post-secondary institution, for one course or more, and regardless of its relevance to your application, you must ensure that your official application includes this information and that a transcript is submitted.
If you are an OUAC applicant (with the exception of current Ontario secondary school students using the OUAC 101 application) you must include a list in your application of all non-academic activities (e.g. employment, volunteer work, travel, etc.) from year to year, from the beginning of secondary school to your expected start date. If there is a timeframe when you did not participate in any activities and did not attend school, you must indicate "no activities."
If you are applying for readmission, you must include an outline of your activities since last enrolled in your program and submit updated academic transcripts, as applicable.
Changes to your application (e.g. program choice) or personal information (e.g. email/postal address/telephone) must be made as soon as possible to avoid missing key and date-sensitive information.
If you submitted an incomplete application, or you wish to update the information provided, you can amend it as follows:
- If you applied via the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC, external link), amend via the OUAC
- If you applied via the Ontario College Application Centre (OCAS, external link) for the Collaborative Nursing program, amend through OCAS
- All other applicants must complete the PDF fileTMU Change Form
If you receive an Offer of Admission after August 1, all changes to your personal and contact information must be made by you in MyServiceHub (your TMU student account).
Fill in the Activation Form to activate your TMU Online Identity. When asked for your Student/Applicant ID, enter your nine-digit TMU Student Number (located in your application acknowledgement email). Remember to keep a record of your username and password. Your TMU Online Identity will be activated within 24 hours.
Safety and Security
The safety and security of your information is important to us. Emails from the TMU domain are only from @ryerson.ca and official letter communications are only issued to you in your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal.
Your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal is our primary way of communicating with you, so check your portal often. It is your responsibility to read all the letters we post to your My Communications page, accessible via the ChooseTMU Applicant Portal. It is also your responsibility to track your application status under My Application Status.
OCAS applicants for the Collaborative Nursing program: All documents must be submitted via OCAS (with the exception of the Collaborative Nursing Supplementary Form). The following applies to OUAC applicants only (or those using a TMU Application Form).
Visit Document Submission for information on how to determine what documents are required in support of your application(s), as well as for submission instructions. Ensure that the following items are submitted (as applicable):
- Academic Transcripts – Visit Document Submission to determine what academic transcripts are required and how to submit them
- TMU Supplementary Form (optional) – Applicable to all applicants, except current Ontario secondary school students (OUAC 101 applicants)
- Supporting Documents – Submit personal/confidential information, proof of name change, or other information as applicable. Applicants are invited to review our process for assessing individual cases. Please visit our Special Consideration page

Prevent important and time-sensitive email communications from being blocked by maintaining a personal, unique email account and editing/updating your spam filters. Add email@example.com to your email contact list to ensure you do not miss these emails.
If you are admitted to the Collaborative Nursing program and you enrol in courses at Centennial College or George Brown College, you are eligible to apply for scholarships and awards offered at the colleges, as well as other forms of financial assistance.
Check your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal regularly to monitor the status of your application.
Contact information, including email and postal addresses, must be kept up-to-date. Communication from TMU to applicants is date sensitive. If a response is required, and you do not respond within specified time frames, your application and/or Offer of Admission may be cancelled.
Admission decisions are based on the information available when we review your application. Your application is subject to both admission criteria as well as available space when your material is received.
If you receive a conditional Offer of Admission, you must provide TMU Undergraduate Admissions with proof that you have met the condition(s). This proof must be received by the conditional submission deadline included in your Offer of Admission.
All applicants are required to complete their admission requirements by June 30 (unless otherwise stated in the Offer of Admission). This includes applicants given an early or conditional Offer of Admission. Visit Summer School and Other Extensions to find related information or to submit an extension request.
