Applying to Trinity One

Application to the Trinity One Program is open to all full-time students entering their first year of study in the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto, regardless of college affiliation. The Trinity One application allows you to apply to more than one stream, however you will only be offered a spot in one.  

We recommend submitting your application prior to the deadline as applications will be assessed on an ongoing basis. As soon as you are accepted by the Faculty of Arts and Science we can process your application to the Trinity One Program. 

We assess all applicants individually based upon their academic record and the Trinity One application, which includes both a video and essay response. The selection process for Trinity One is entirely separate from the selection process for admission to membership at Trinity College. Therefore, if are selected for one, you may or may not be selected for the other.


The Trinity One Application for September 2019 is now open!

Students can access the application here.


Application Steps:

Step 1 - Apply to the Faculty of Arts and Science on the St. George Campus.

Step 2 - Wait for an acknowledgement of your application from U of T.  This will contain information on your U of T JOINid.

Step 3 - Log into the Trinity One Application using your JOINid and complete it by the posted deadline.  Remember that Trinity One is one of the First-Year Foundation Programs offered by U of T.  You can apply to more than one Foundation Program, but you can only accept one offer.

Step 4 - Once you've applied, wait patiently.  We will assess all applications and can only offer admission to Trinity One after you have been admitted to the Faculty of Arts and Science.

Step 5 - Check your Trin One application status on-line through the First-Year Foundation Programs site.  We will also e-mail you with our decision, but ultimately it is your responsibility to monitor your status.  We respond to all applications, whether or not we are able to offer you a spot in Trinity One.

Step 6 - If you receive a Trinity One offer, then in addition to responding to U of T’s offer of admission through OUAC by the published deadline you MUST respond to the Trinity One offer by the deadline listed on the First-Year Foundations site.   Please note that the deadline by which your offer to Trinity One expires may differ from the deadline to accept your offer of Admission to U of T.

Step 7 - Congratulations you are now a member of Trinity One!  We will send you further information regarding course enrollment later in the summer.
