Application Deadline


If you would like to discuss the possibility of taking a course as a Visiting Student in January 2018, please email our office at as soon as possible. 


The application deadline for the 2017-18 Fall/Winter Session was July 25, 2017.

If you are interested in applying to take courses as a Visiting Student during the winter term (January 4 - April 30, 2018), please note that many courses are already full to capacity and some have a waitlist. Applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Your first step is to review the Faculty of Arts & Science online timetable to identify winter term courses you are interested in taking that still have space available. You will then need to request a Letter of Permission from your home institution listing the courses you wish to take. Once you obtain your Letter of Permission, please email our office at to discuss next steps. 

Please note the following:

  • The Visiting Students Program is designed for the Summer Session and there are very limited opportunities for Visiting Students to study in the Fall/Winter session. The Fall/Winter session is NOT appropriate for students who are interested in a full-course load, who require upper level courses, or are in their graduating year.
  • Visiting students in Fall/Winter must enrol after U of T degree students have been accommodated, and many courses will have filled to capacity.
  • We strongly advise you to have alternate plans in place for your Fall/Winter studies.
  • Admission to the Visiting Students Program does not guarantee successful enrolment in any course.
  • Due to the limited priority during the Fall/Winter session, Visiting Students are limited to 3.5 full course equivalents unless otherwise approved.


We are no longer accepting applications for the 2017 SUMMER session.

Information about the 2018 SUMMER session will be posted in the new year.
