In April 2022, Ryerson University changed its name to Toronto Metropolitan University, which will be implemented in a phased approach. You will see the Ryerson name across campus, online and in our official communications for a period of time. Learn more about our next chapter.

Admission Requirements

How does Toronto Metropolitan University assess applications for admission?

The complete academic record of all your secondary and post-secondary studies (e.g. college, university) is considered as part of the competitive selection process, unless otherwise noted. Admission is based on competitive grades in program specific subject requirements and competitive overall admission averages. Grade 11 results may be used in the early admission offer process. Some programs (Grades-Plus) also specify non-academic requirements for admission (e.g., portfolio, essay, interview, audition).

The number of applications we receive greatly exceeds the number of spaces available in each program and the possession of the minimum requirements in no way guarantees acceptance. Due to competition candidates may be required to present averages/grades above the minimum(s). Admission consideration is based on the information available at the time of application review. Toronto Metropolitan does not issue alternate Offers of Admission.
