Document submission

Once you've received an email acknowledgment of your application from Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU), submit your unofficial transcripts and supporting documents by our deadlines.

Required documents

Your grades will be submitted by your guidance office to the OUAC.

If you’ve attended/are attending college or university for any length of time (including one course), your transcript is required. If you didn’t include the institution on your application, you must amend it with the missing information. The school will then show in your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal.

Secondary and post-secondary transcripts are required for the assessment of your application. Plan to collect these at the time of application. A copy of an official transcript issued by your school or your student record obtained from a self-serve system is sufficient.

You can upload unofficial transcripts in the ChooseTMU Applicant Portal. TMU will request official transcripts if you're admitted

  • Transcripts are considered official when sent to us directly by the issuing institution or via the OUAC. 
  • Official transcripts generally bear an original seal/stamp and/or official signature from an appropriate signatory. They also show the names of the courses you’ve completed and are enrolled in, the marks you’ve received, credit values, grading scheme, as well as the graduation credential (if awarded).

If you’ve attended a school outside of Canada, visit the official transcript submission page for more information about required transcripts and how to submit them.

If your documents are in a language other than English, you must provide them in the original language, as well as certified/notarized literal English translations.

Are you a current/previous TMU applicant or undergraduate student? Be sure to indicate this on your application. You don't need to submit transcripts again if they’re already on file and complete (and you haven’t enrolled in courses since). TMU grades will be obtained internally.

Note: your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal may not reflect documents submitted in a previous year.

If you’re not a current Ontario secondary school student, we encourage you to tell us about yourself and submit a supplementary form. You can access it in your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal.

Special consideration: Submit a special consideration form if you want to tell us about a barrier or hardship you have faced that may have negatively affected your grades. This form is confidential. 

Proof of name change: If your transcripts and/or other supporting documents show a name that differs from your application, submit proof of name change such as marriage certificate, notarized statement, or another applicable legal document.

Convention refugees/protected persons: Please submit your government-issued papers to avoid being charged higher tuition fees.

International students: If you plan to enrol at TMU on a study permit, we encourage you to begin preparations at the time of application, where possible. You can apply for your study permit at a Canadian embassy or consulate in your home country or region as soon as you receive an Offer of Admission. Visit (external link, opens in new window)  for details.

Some TMU programs specify non-academic requirements for admission. These can include auditions, interviews, portfolios, essays, etc. Visit your program page for non-academic requirements, submission dates and procedures.

For English language requirements, policies and procedures visit our English language requirements page.

Additional information

  • Your ChooseTMU Applicant Portal will indicate the documents received by TMU. We encourage you to visit your portal frequently to keep on top of your application.
  • You must state all institutions that you’ve attended (since secondary school) on your application. Withholding this information can result in the cancellation of your application.
  • Applications will be deemed incomplete if non-academic requirements are not received by noted deadlines.
  • Admission requirements must be complete or in progress at the time of application.
  • If you’ve attended multiple secondary schools, you don't need to submit a transcript from each school. If all of your results (interim/final) are indicated on the latest transcript, that's sufficient.
  • Non-academic requirements (e.g. portfolio, essay, demo, etc.): Your non-academic submission will be retained by the university for the purposes of verifying authenticity. Upon admission and enrolment in a program, if any element of the non-academic requirements is found to be plagiarised (not wholly your own), your admission/enrolment in the program will be cancelled.
