Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Here are answers to some of the most common questions we receive:

  • Guaranteed consideration date for applications to all programs: February 1
  • Complete applications and amendments received by this date will receive equal consideration, so we recommend submitting your application and supporting documents as early as possible

Yes, you can apply for up to three engineering programs at TMU.

Decisions will be released starting in December and continue on a rolling basis through the end of May.

An Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six grade 12 U/M courses is required, including competitive grades in the required subjects:

  • Grade 12 U English 
  • Advanced Functions (MHF4U)
  • Physics (SPH4U)
  • Chemistry (SCH4U)
  • Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U)

The OSSD with a minimum overall average of 70% in six Grade 12 U/M courses, or equivalent, establishes eligibility for admission. We encourage you to apply if you have an average of 80% or higher, and grades of at least 70-75% in each required course. 

The overall average is calculated using marks in the best six Grade 12 U or M courses, which may include repeated or upgraded course marks.

The number of applications we receive greatly exceeds the number of spaces available in each program. To be competitive, you should aim for averages/grades above the minimum.

No. The admission decision will be based on your academics. 

If you have additional information that you feel should be considered in our review of your application, you may submit the Special Consideration form (opens in new window) . This may include circumstances that affected your grades.

If you are a Canadian secondary school student (outside of Ontario) applying to TMU, please select your province or territory (opens in new window)  to determine what’s required for your application.

Whether you’re a Canadian studying abroad or you’re an international student joining us on a study permit, you’ll find the relevant country or educational system requirements here (opens in new window) .

Yes, you can repeat a course to upgrade your mark and you won’t be penalized. 

Keep in mind that all courses required for admission (including completion of the OSSD) must be completed by June 30 of the year you are applying, unless otherwise approved in writing by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. If you find you need to complete a course beyond the June deadline, then you must apply for a summer school extension (opens in new window)  in May. Not all programs grant extensions nor are extensions guaranteed. All requests are subject to space availability and competition.

You can apply online for transfer credits using two different methods depending on where you completed your previous studies. For step by step instructions visit How to Apply for Transfer Credits (opens in new window) .

If you are approved into an engineering program, you are eligible for core engineering course transfer credit only if your post-secondary education was completed in a program accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). Refer to Engineers Canada for a list of CEAB-accredited programs  (external link, opens in new window) .

We’re ready to help make the application process seamless. Contact an engineering admissions officer to learn about admissions requirements, degree options, transfer credits, and more. They'll guide you every step of the way.
