Apply Online

You are encouraged to apply to Trent as early as possible as some programs have limited enrolment. There are two ways to apply to Trent:  

Apply directly to Trent (if Trent is the only university in Ontario you are applying to):

  • Create an account and apply directly to Trent (the email address you will use to create your account will be the email that we will use to communicate with you as an applicant)
  • Submit application fee ($90 CAD)

Apply through the OUAC (if you are applying to several universities in Ontario):

The OUAC website has many helpful resources such as Frequently Asked Questions, Video Tutorials and step-by-step guides.

Personal Identification Number (P.I.N.)

If you are currently enrolled in an Ontario secondary school, guidance counsellors will provide you with a P.I.N. (personal identification number) to access the OUAC site and application process.

All other applicants will create user profiles on the OUAC site, which will then automatically assign a P.I.N

Email "Safe Sender" List

Once you apply, you will begin to receive emails from the International Admissions Office outlining next steps and other important information concerning your application.

Please ensure you add "@trentu.ca" to your 'Safe Senders' list in your email.

You may want to check your Junk Mail if you feel you have missed a communication from Trent.
