How to Apply

Trinity College is one of seven colleges in the Faculty of Arts & Science at the St. George Campus at the University of Toronto. All students enrolled in the Faculty of Arts & Science are a member of one of the colleges.

Trinity admits approximately 450 first-year students each year, and although our admission averages tend to be higher than the Faculty of Arts & Science’s, we do not have set cut-off marks. We also base our admission decisions on more than grades. In addition to your overall academic record, we also take into account your Trinity College Applicant Profile.

ADMISSION TO MEMBERSHIP AT TRINITY COLLEGE

Step 1: Apply to the University of Toronto

Apply to the University of Toronto through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC)

You will be asked to choose your college preferences on your OUAC application (note: college selection is unrelated to program choice). Due to demand, Trinity College only considers students who select “Trinity College” as their first preference of college. All interested students who select Trinity College as their first preference of college are required to complete the Trinity College Applicant Profile.

Tip: The application process and requirements depend on where you are currently studying: for example, are you enrolled in an Ontario high school? A Canadian high school outside of Ontario? A Canadian university or college? Or are you an international student (studying outside of Canada)?

Note: To be considered for membership to Trinity College, you must first meet University of Toronto and Faculty of Arts & Science admission requirements.
