Students interested in applying to the IFP should apply online through the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC). 

IMPORTANT: Students applying to the IFP will be considered for the IFP only.  Students who wish to also be considered for direct admission must apply separately on OUAC. 

Students cannot apply directly for the Summer IFP on OUAC. Students will be considered for both the Fall/Winter IFP and the Summer IFP based on their complete academic history, English Proficiency test scores and on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Faculty. 

All admissions offers are made at the discretion of University Admissions & Outreach.

 Get ready to apply by choosing your program — or programs — and making sure you meet our admission requirements for your intended program(s) of study. Once you are ready to apply, choose the application that is right for you: 

Undergraduate Application


Use the OUAC Undergraduate Application if you:

  • are a domestic or international applicant looking to apply to full-time studies at an undergraduate program at the University of Toronto

University of Toronto International Application


Use the University of Toronto International Application if you:

  • currently reside outside of Canada, AND
  • are not currently studying, and have not previously studied in Canada, AND
  • are not applying to any other Ontario university

This application is for applying to the University of Toronto only. Prospective international applicants who wish to apply to other Ontario universities in addition to the University of Toronto should use the OUAC Undergraduate Application.

You are permitted to submit one type of application only. If you submit more than one application, the University of Toronto will cancel the second without a refund. 

Selecting Your Admission Category

IMPORTANT:Please take careful consideration when selecting your admission category on the OUAC.
Your chosen admission category will determine your field of study after completion of the IFP. Applicants should apply to the admission category that aligns with your future study goals.
It is often not possible to change programs after you have been admitted. For example: students who apply for Life Sciences within the Faculty of Arts & Science as their admission category on their OUAC application will not be able to transfer into the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design after completion of the IFP.
