New Students – Welcome to the OT Program!


We look forward to meeting you this Fall. On this webpage, we will post important information pertaining to orientation and registration for the Fall. Academic Orientation during August is fully online.



Student-led social and leisure “O-Week 2022” (optional)


O-Week Registration for incoming OT students has started. Instructions for how to sign up were sent by email.


Students in second year of the program organize social orientation activities for the first year students – both fun and informative. Some of these will have costs attached to them.

These activities are completely optional, and student leaders for “O-Week” are advised by the Chair to abide by the professional conduct regulations set by the University of Toronto and the Department. For activities taking place off-site (non-University of Toronto property), students purporting to represent the Department (e.g. wearing a University shirt in public) at an O-Week activity should continue to conduct themselves professionally. There will be a Facebook group set-up for O-Week; forms may be posted here during summer at the request of O-Week Leaders.

INCOMING Student Fieldwork Requirements


The Director of Clinical Education has provided the following documents for your immediate review and action as required. These pertain to immunizations, CPR training, Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS), and other very important fieldwork information.

Tuition Invoices Online Only


Tuition fee invoices are posted in July to your ACORN account

It is your responsibility to ensure your registration is completed on time. The School of Graduate Studies provides detailed information on registration deadlines, and the process of registration. For example, they distinguish between registration by paying tuition fees immediately, or requesting to register without payment.
