Welcome Guidance Professionals and Teachers
Our team at Trent is looking forward to being a valued resource for you, and working together to help students find and unleash their potential at Ontario’s #1 undergraduate university.
Here you will find the information and tools to help your students connect virtually with Trent, visit campus, understand Trent's application process, attend our virtual guidance event and contact information for all of your questions. Times are changing and we are here to help you your students navigate learning about and applying to Trent.
We would love the opportunity to connect with you and your students this fall through one of the many virtual opportunities we have on hand for future students. If you would like to schedule a virtual visit, beyond what is offered on our virtual opportunities page, please contact us and we will be in touch to schedule a date and time that works for you.
Excalibur Packages, right to your doorstep!
We will be sending Trent Viewbooks and swag to your school this September. If you need additional copies or other Trent materials we are happy to send you more. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
Virtual Fall Open House
While we look forward to the day when students can join us in person, Virtual Fall Open House, Saturday, November 7 is the next best thing. Students can hear from professors about the academic program of their choice, meet current students, chat with admissions, scholarships, housing and more - all from the comfort of their own home.
In person campus tours have resumed at both our campuses. Those wishing to book a campus tour should visit our Campus Tour Registration page for updated tour information.
Trent Guidance Update
On October 15, 2020 we hosted our Trent Guidance Update. For your convenience, the recorded session is now available below.
Release of Information Form
In order to speak with Trent University about a student's application, the student must fill out and submit a Release of Information Form, available on MyTrent.
Offers of Admission
Offers of Admission will begin rolling out to successful applicants in December. Early Offers of Admission may be extended to high achieving students based on final Grade 11 marks.
See the Offers of Admission section on the Admission Deadlines page for more detail.
Calculating Entrance Average
Admission to Trent is based on a minimum overall average of 70% on top six Grade 12 4U or 4M courses and a minimum of 60% in ENG 4U. Professional programs have specific admission requirements that differ from Trent's general admission.
Non-Ontario secondary students have specific admission requirements. Please refer to the Out of Province Admission section for more details.
For more information about Trent admission requirements, please visit the Admissions Requirement Chart.
Average cut-offs fluctuate year to year, depending on the number of applications received, and the strength of the applications. Typically, cut-offs range from the low 70s to the mid 80s. Applicants are encouraged to aim for the highest average possible to increase eligibility for a given program, as well as scholarship consideration (entrance scholarships begin at 80%).
Summer School /Online Courses
Students are eligible to enrol in summer school and/or online courses. Trent may use these grades in calculating final entrance averages for admission and scholarship purposes.
The University has announced a “multi-access” approach for the fall, which means that when and where possible, we will open our on-campus operations, spaces and activities, and are planning on-campus academic and social events and activities for students. At the same time, most courses are available through online or remote learning.
As we move forward, our actions and decisions will be continually informed by the monitoring of the COVID situation in the University and the communities in which we are located. If the pandemic requires it, we will change and adjust our plans and actions to protect the health and safety of our students and our communities.

We appreciate the time and effort you dedicate to your students and their success. Please contact us personally at any time if we can be of assistance to you, your students or your school.
