If you applied directly to Trent, you should e-mail your response (accept or decline an offer) to our Admissions Office.

If you applied through the OUAC, you should post your decision on your OUAC account. Download this PDF for instructions on how to accept your Offer of Admission on your OUAC account.


Sign On to MyTrent

If you haven’t already done so, please activate your MyTrent portal account.  There you can access your records, track your status, and retrieve your Trent email when it is available. 


Apply for your Study Permit

Your Letter of Acceptance contains all of the program details that you will need to apply for a study permit.  As processing times vary depending on the visa office and time of year, it’s best to apply as soon as you have received your offer of admission. Apply online for your study permit from Citizenship & Immigration Canada 

Explore our Residences and Discover Your Community

At our Peterborough campus, everyone is a part of a college, regardless of whether you commute to campus or live in residence. It’s your home away from home: a place to make friends, participate in events that will inspire and motivate you, get support and academic advice, connect with faculty outside of the classroom, and a whole lot more. Learn more about each residential college at trentu.ca/colleges.

For our Durham campus students, Trent has partnered with Durham College and UOIT to provide a residence experience that offers convenience and great friendships. The residences, only a 10 minute drive or direct bus ride from the Trent Durham campus using your Transit Pass, offers safe, clean, and comfortable living accommodations. For more information, visit our Durham campus Residences and Housing website.

Learn about how you can get involved in Trent’s clubs, groups, sports, and leadership programs, and what Peterborough and Durham have to offer to help you make the most of your university years.

Explore Your Program

As a future Trent student, you should now explore the courses and program options of interest to you.

You probably have a good idea of what program you want to take, but you might also want to consider electives or learn more about the ways you can customize your degree through emphasis or specialization options. You can find out about your degree choices and course offerings online at Degrees & Programs or in our Academic Calendar.
