A Catholic university in the University of Toronto
— Principal and Vice President Randy Boyagoda, from a recent interview with Comment Magazine
As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing like St. Mike's anywhere else in the world, in that you have the combination of a religiously serious liberal-arts-based college that is federated with a globally ranked public research university.
The University of St. Michael’s College is a leading Catholic institution of higher learning in Canada. It is the site of a unique, ongoing dialogue between world-class scholarship, the main currents of secular life, and a variety of faith traditions. Located in one of the most diverse cities in the world, the University boasts almost 1,000 international students in an overall population of approximately 5,000.
Federated with the University of Toronto, St. Michael’s provides a world-renowned undergraduate experience in the heart of Canada’s leading research university. Students come to St. Mike's from all over the world to study with the best scholars in their fields while also enjoying a tight-knit community.
First Year Learning Communities at the U of T, three unique SMC One programs, and other first year seminar courses provide new students with the experience of a smaller classroom and help in the transition to university life. At the end of your career here, you will join other St. Michael's alumni—Prime Ministers, CEOs, Olympic gold-medalists, and globally-recognized scholars among them—in receiving a degree from the University of Toronto.
To apply to the University of St. Michael’s College, please submit an application through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) website. Applications are typically open for submission between October and early January.
The University of Toronto is a world-class institution, and its applicants hail from all over the globe. St. Michael’s maintains the same level of rigor and seeks the brightest candidates in its selection process. For admission requirements and important dates, please click here.
St. Michael’s offers a number of admission scholarships to our most qualified incoming students each year. Students who select USMC as their first choice will be automatically considered upon admission; those receiving scholarships will be notified in their letter of offer.
In order to be considered for some of the admissions awards, such as the Melissa Clubbe Memorial Admission Scholarship, students must be receiving provincial student loans (OSAP, BC Loan, etc.).
