Trent Guidance Update
On October 15, 2020 we hosted a 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 began rolling out to successful applicants in December. Some early Offers of Admission were 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.
We are planning for in-person learning at our Peterborough and Durham campuses for fall 2021. We remain committed to providing students with the best educational experience possible, in a way that allows for campus connections, athletics and recreation, and opportunities to live and study, socialize and gain work experience on campus. For students who prefer remote learning, we will at the same time be providing some enhanced opportunities for students to study remotely.
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.
