Applicants must also present at least three SAT II (Subject Tests) scores or AP scores in subjects appropriate to their proposed area of study. Those seeking admission to Science or Business/Commerce programs are strongly advised to complete AP Calculus AB or BC, or IB Mathematics. Scores below 500 in any part of the SAT Reasoning or Subject Tests are not acceptable. While many of our programs require higher scores, students normally present scores of at least 1,150 on the SAT I’s and 26 on the ACT. A minimum of 1,300 is required for admission to most programs in Engineering. In addition to meeting the above requirements, students seeking admission to Applied Science and Engineering must include AP or IB Calculus, as well as AP/IB or SAT II (Subject Tests) in both Chemistry and Physics. Students seeking admission to Engineering after one year of university in the U.S. are required to present a GPA of at least 3.5 with two semesters of Math, Physics, and Chemistry. Transfer credit towards Arts, Business, and Science programs is given for some Advanced Placement tests with scores of 4 or 5. Further information is available at www.adm.utoronto.ca/adm/adm_pd_files/usa.pdf. Note: No transfer credit is awarded for AP courses by the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering. French Baccalaureate Minimum requirement for admission consideration is completion of the Baccalaureate/Baccalaureate General/Diplome de Bachelier de l'Enseignement du Second Degree with good results overall and in appropriate subjects. The Baccalaureate Technologique from France will also be considered if required subjects are included.
