New Student Checklist

You've accepted your offer, paid your tuition deposit, and met your admission requirements. Now what? Check out what steps you need to take as a new student at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU).

Visit this page to view all things related to academics, student life, financial, and your TMU student portal!

Your online identity is important! This username and password is used to access your TMU email, register for courses, log into computers on campus and access to other online resources. When asked for your student/applicant ID, enter your nine-digit university student number. Keep a record of your username and password. Note: It may take up to 48 hours for your online identity to be active.


Your Student OneCard is one of the most important tools you’ll need while at TMU. Not only is it your official student identification, it also grants you access to campus services, buildings and discounts. You can also use it as a payment card to purchase products and services.

All incoming students must apply for their free OneCard using the online OneCard application portal. Once your application is approved, you can pick up your OneCard by visiting the Kerr Hall West (KHW) Lower Gym between August 29 and September 16.

All official university communications will be sent to your Toronto Metropolitan University email account.
Remember to check it frequently!

You are required to follow the term-by-term requirements that have been developed specifically for ProCom students. To learn more about Semesters 1 and 2, including required courses, your selection of elective courses, and course descriptions, refer to the Undergraduate Course Calendar.

The Course Enrollment Period for the Fall 2022 Term is from August 9 - September 16. During this time, you may enrol or make changes to your Fall 2022 courses.

The Course Intention Period for the Winter 2023 Term is from August 22 - September 16. If you were automatically enrolled into your required Fall 2022 term courses, you were also loaded into your required Winter 2023 Term course intentions. You are required to select your elective courses for the Winter 2023 term. Completing course intentions increases your chances of being scheduled into courses of your choice and allows you to receive your OSAP funding for the Winter 2023 term earlier.
