How to Apply

At Toronto Metropolitan University, all graduate applications are submitted online through our easy-to-use system. Submitting a complete application package is a two-part process: 1) submitting your application through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC), and 2) uploading your documents. The online system is mandatory; the Yeates School of Graduate Studies will not accept any hard copy application packages, nor will they be processed.

Note: Applicants to the master of architecture program are required to submit both an e-copy and a hard copy portfolio. The hard copy must be mailed to the architecture graduate program directly. Refer to the master of architecture admission guidelines for more details.

The Application Process via OUAC

Visit the Ontario Universities' Application Center website  (external link) (OUAC), select your “Status in Canada” from the drop-down menu and click “Save.”

Select the program(s) you wish to apply to and click “Save Program” (maximum three programs).

Create or log in to your OUAC account. Ensure that you write down your username and password so you may return to your application if necessary at a later date.

Prepare your application using the navigation bar on the left to fill out your information, click “Review and Submit,” and verify that all information is accurate.

Make the payment of $110 per program as requested. All application fees are non-refundable.

Submit your application.

Note: Make sure to apply to the correct program; once you submit your application, you cannot change the program(s) you selected initially.

Check your inbox (ensure it’s the email address you provided in your OUAC application) for instructions outlining how to upload your documents electronically.

Note: If you have a university email address, you will receive all correspondence via that email inbox. If you do not yet have a university email address, you will receive all correspondence via the email inbox indicated in your online application.

Next Steps via the Yeates School of Graduate Studies

After you have completed your OUAC application, an online account will be created for you on MyServiceHub within 1-2 business days. You will be emailed within 2-3 business days to create your online identity and upload your required documents electronically. Make sure your documents are clearly labeled before they are uploaded.

Once you have gathered all the required documents and activated your online identity, you can log on to the Applicant Upload portal. Once you have successfully uploaded all your required documents, your application will enter the review process.

Monitor your application status in MyServiceHub and through the Applicant Upload portal.

In the Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science, our programs offer multiple admission terms Fall (September start), Winter (January start) and Spring (May start), with the exception of the Master of Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Master of Computer Networks, and Master of Architecture who only admit students in the Fall.
