Is it possible to change what program I?ve applied for in an Internal Transfer Application after I have already submitted the application?
Thank you in advance ?
not usually. according to enrolment services, you can only make changes to program choice by the deadline to submit your application, which was Februrary 8th for the faculty of arts & science. i’d recommend you contact enrolment services and see what they can do for you, because they do spend a lot of time/paperwork making sure you are admitted into the program you request.
if all else fails, it’s always possible?to get into another program after you’re admitted, assuming it’s 1) not rotman and 2) you have all the correct prerequisites.
let’s say you applied to biology, and you get in. that means you’ll be entering uoft in a biology specialist. let’s say you want to do an ecology and evolutionary biology specialist instead. what you would do (once you’ve been accepted to uoft) is go in to ACORN and change your subject POSt (program of study). you can only do this from april-september, so make sure to do it in good time.
now, i did give a pretty simplified example. you may want to do a combination of POSts, and the POSt that you want to get into may not accept you automatically. the examples i gave are both type 1 POSts: that means that there are really no admission requirements, and the POSt has unlimited enrolment. so if you apply on time, you’re in no matter what.
the program(s) you’re interested in, however, may be type 2’s (they have certain academic requirements you must meet in order to be accepted), type 2L’s (they have academic requirements but meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission) or type 3’s (academic requirements, meeting them does not guarantee admission, AND they require a supplementary application outside of ACORN). you can see which type(s) the POSt(s) you’re interested in is/are here.
if you did NOT apply to an arts & science program, i would recommend contacting the relevant office for further information – UTM’s registrar’s office, UTSC’s office of admission and student recruitment, the engineering undergraduate admissions office for the faculty of applied science and engineering, etc.
if you have any further questions about this process, don’t hesitate to e-mail me, or contact the registrar’s office at the college/faculty/campus where you’ve been admitted.
