Path to Vic One

> Apply to the University of Toronto, St. George Campus on the OUAC website.
> *Select from the listed fields of study:
- Humanities
- Social Sciences
- Life Sciences
- Math & Physical Sciences
> **Rank Colleges.
Only students who select Victoria College as their first choice on OUAC will be considered. (BUT you do not have to be a Vic student to be eligible for Vic One.)

*Check out U of T's Guide to the College System


Step 2

> Wait for "application acknowledgement" package from U of T, which will have your 10-digit U of T applicant number (starting with "100") and your JOINid (of the form "abcdefg1").

Your U of T applicant # will be used for any future contact with U of T. Your U of T applicant # and JOINid will be used to set up your JOINid account. This will provide access to the U of T applicant community pages and status check.


Congratulations! you are well on your way!
Now for the next part...


Step 3

If you ranked Vic first on OUAC you must also complete the Vic Profile to be considered for Victoria College.

> Select only one stream of study.

Once you have chosen a stream, you will be given a stream-specific essay question. If you choose to respond to a different question, you are applying to a different stream.


**TIPS**
> There is no autosave functionality, so compose essay responses elsewhere and cut-paste into the application.
