Your college provides a smaller home within the larger University of Toronto. While all colleges provide similar student services and activities, each has its own personality and traditions. Your college serves as a support system where you can readily access academic, personal and financial advising. Your college will also likely be the major focus of your social life through clubs, social events and other community and student-run activities. You may even live at your college as a residence student. Think of your college as your home base within the University of Toronto and likely where you’ll meet some of your best friends.
Although Trinity’s admission averages tend to be higher than the Faculty of Arts & Science’s, we do not have set “cut-off” marks. In addition to your overall academic record, we also take into account your Trinity College Applicant Profile.
Yes, because more students request a place at Trinity than we can accept. If, for example, 1,000 students request Trinity as their first choice, and we only have 400 spots for first-year students, we will choose our 400 out of that 1,000 and will not be able to consider students who have listed Trinity as a second choice.
