Non-Traditional Students

For those interested in pursuing undergraduate programs at the University of Toronto Mississauga, but who may not hold the published admission requirements. Prospective non-traditional students may be eligible to pursue one of UTM’s pathways for admission for non-matriculants.

Although you may identify as a non-traditional or mature student, you may in fact qualify for admission under another profile. The university will look to your most recent academic history as a basis-of-admission, therefore you should be checking the requirements for applicants from a similar academic background before proceeding with any of the following. Please review the information for the various applicant profiles at

Should you have questions, or wish to speak with someone regarding a basis-of-admission, please contact the UTM Student Recruitment & Admissions Office at 905-828-5400.
