2. Application site's technical requirements.

  • Add applytovic@utoronto.ca and goingtovic@utoronto.ca to your address book. This will ensure that our emails arrive in your inbox and not your spam/junk-mail folder.

  • The application site is compatible with Google Chrome.  It is advised that you only use Google Chrome when completing your Victoria College Student Profile and/or Vic One application. Also, make sure to clear you cache and webpage history.

  • Make sure JavaScript is enabled on your browser.  For Google Chrome, go to Settings >> Show advanced settings >> Content settings (under Privacy) >> check off "Allow all sites to run JavaScript" under JavaScript.

  • Transcript requirement for non-Ontario high school applicants to the Vic One Program.  Please scan your transcripts at a low resolution to minimize file size.  The application site will accept only one PDF or JPEG upload and it must be under 512 KB in size.

  • Do not wait until the day before the deadline to begin or submit your application.  Due to the high volume of emails during the application period, please allow five (5) business days for a response to any email inquiries.

 
3. Login using your joinid.
  • You will need your JOINid to login to the Victoria College Student Profile and Vic One application.

  • Once you login, you will have access to the applications you are eligible to complete.

  • If you are having problems with your JOINid, please visit https://www.utorid.utoronto.ca/

 
4. Fill out your application(s).
  • Read through all of the questions before you begin.  You do not have to answer the questions in order, begin with the question you are most comfortable with.

  • Save your responses in the application and in a separate document. Copy and paste your responses into the application.

  • Save your responses frequently.  If you are working in the application, be sure to save your responses frequently. If the application times out, you will lose any unsaved responses.

  • Complete answers as concisely as possible.  Each short answer question has a 2000 character limit, including spaces - however that does not mean that you have to keep writing until you hit the maximum character limitation.  Evaluators will appreciate a response that is well thought out (even if it is slightly shorter).

  • If you are going to use acronyms be sure to explain the meaning of them.  Never assume that our evaluators will know the meaning of an acronym. 

  • Be honest.  We developed these applications to learn more about our students.  Please do not write what you think we want to hear.

  • Make sure you save a copy of your responses before you submit.  This way you'll have them for your own records.

 
5. After you submit...
  • You will receive a confirmation email for each application (Victoria College Student Profile and Vic One application). Do not delete these emails.
