Preparing Your Application
Before submitting your application, confirm that you meet the minimum admission requirements to be eligible for the program(s). Our Grades-Plus programs have additional Non-Academic Requirements, so be sure to visit the program pages for the details and instructions. More information on application forms and deadlines is available on the Applying to Ryerson page.

Applying to Ryerson
Applying takes three easy steps, which are outlined on the Applying to Ryerson page, as well as in the how-to video below.

Transfer Credits
Transfer students are eligible to apply for transfer credits after you receive an Offer of Admission. Preparing for your applications now can ensure your application process goes smoothly and that you receive your results earlier. Visit the Prospective Students Transfer Credits webpage for eligibility and application information. Detailed course outlines (syllabus) and assignment information may be required as part of the transfer credit process, so we recommend you begin collecting these materials now.

DMZ-based entrepreneur says ‘yes I can’

“For Maayan Ziv, a recent graduate of Ryerson’s Master of Digital Media program and current DMZ-based entrepreneur, getting around isn’t always easy. ‘I’m someone who uses a wheelchair, and there are a lot of places that are not accessible. Sometimes I’m trying for hours even just to find out if I can get into a location – if it’s actually accessible to me, and if I’m okay when I get there. The kind of information that I’m looking for is not easily available, and when I do find good information, it’s often very unreliable.

‘So the idea was: Why don’t we just build a map that would allow anyone who has experience with accessibility to add their own information so we can start to collect places – not only in Toronto, but all over the world.’

The result: AccessNow, a new mobile app launched in August. The technology allows users to find information on disability-accessible buildings, and contribute information to the app’s database.” (Ryerson Today)
