UTM & UTSC Transfer Students

UTM/UTSC degree students interested in ‘transferring’ to the Faculty of Arts and Science must first apply for admission consideration to the Faculty of Arts and Science and meet the minimum admission requirements established by Enrolment Services (formerly known as the Admissions and Awards Office.)  The Criminology and Sociolegal Studies Program Office does not administer this process.  Those wishing to be considered for admission to the Criminology and Sociolegal Studies major program need to select the  “St. George Campus, Social Sciences” stream on the application form and identify Criminology and Sociolegal Studies as the preferred program of study.

Once you have applied to the Faculty of Arts and Science and are issued an offer of admission, you must accept the offer.  This will trigger the transfer credit assessment of your previous studies (this is obligatory).  The assessment is done by the Transfer Credit Office, Faculty of Arts and Science (not our office).  Procedural information will be included with your offer of admission.    If you have any questions about transfer credits please contact the Transfer Credit office directly.  It is crucial that you follow the procedures for the transfer credit assessment right away as the process can be time consuming.  Then follow instructions #1 or #2 as noted here:

Instructions #1” apply to you if you identify Criminology and Sociolegal Studies as the preferred program of study on your application form.

Instructions #2”  apply to you if you DID NOT identify Criminology and Sociolegal Studies on your application form.

Instructions #1
You have requested Criminology and Sociolegal Studies as the preferred program of study your request for admission to the Criminology and Sociolegal Studies major.  Your request will automatically be considered provided you meet the following requirements:

Instructions #2
If you did not request Criminology and Sociolegal Studies as your preferred subject post at the initial application stage (when you applied to the Faculty of Arts and Science)  you must submit a request on-line by the subject Post round 1 admission deadline (May 15, 2014).   The request must be made between April 1 – May 15, 2014 on the Faculty of Arts and Science Registrar’s website (NOT ROSI).  For instructions on how to request  Type 3 subject POSts, check the fall/winter timetable

Requests for admission to the Criminology and Sociolegal major will be considered in the first subject POSt request period only.  This means that summer course results will not be used for admission to this program.   This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be based on a student’s mark in the required courses listed above. The precise mark thresholds outlined above are an estimate of what will be required in the 2014 subject POSt admission cycle. Achieving the minimum mark thresholds does not guarantee admission to the Criminology Major in any given year.
