After Applying

You’ve taken a big leap and applied. 

Thank you for your application to a TMU undergraduate program. We think you’ve made a great choice! If you’ve hit the “submit” button, our Admissions team will be in touch soon via email to acknowledge your application. 

In the meantime, we encourage you to follow the steps below to ensure that your supporting documentation is received by TMU and to stay up-to-date on the status of your application.

Step 1: Double-Check Your Application

 Did you forget anything? 

  • Have you listed every post-secondary school where you were registered for one course or more (regardless of its relevance to your application)? 
  • Did you include a list of all non-academic activities (e.g. employment, volunteer work, travel, etc.) from year to year, from the end of secondary school to your expected start date (not required for OUAC 101 applicants)? If there is a timeframe when you did not participate in any activities and did not attend school, you must indicate "no activities."
  • Applying for readmission? You must include an outline of your activities since last enrolled in your program and submit updated academic transcripts, as applicable.

 Need to make changes to your application?

Do you need to make changes (e.g. program choice) or personal information (e.g. email/postal address/telephone)? These changes must be made as soon as possible to avoid missing key and date-sensitive information. Here’s how:

Step 2: Activate Your TMU Online Identity

 You need access!

In order to access our secure student information system, 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). Your TMU Online Identity will be activated within 24 hours.

Step 3: Log into Your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal

Step 4: Submit Your Transcripts and Supporting Documents

 Have you submitted your documents?

We’ve received your application, now we need your supporting documents so that we can begin our assessment.

Here are some pointers:

  • Visit Document Submission to determine what documents are required in support of your application, as well as for submission instructions. 
  • If you would like to provide information about extenuating circumstances that have negatively impacted your academic performance, we encourage you to submit a Special Consideration form
  • Applied to a Grades-Plus program? Don’t forget to submit your non-academic material (e.g. portfolio, essay, audition). Visit the program page to learn more about the requirements. 
  • Not sure if you need to provide an English language proficiency test score? Review your English proficiency result status bar in the ChooseTMU Applicant Portal.
  • Applied via OCAS to the Collaborative Nursing program? All documents must be submitted via OCAS (with the exception of the Collaborative Nursing Supplementary Form).

Step 5: Maintain Your Email
