Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Syllabus submission

Within your Applicant Portal, you will be able to track your transfer credit assessment. If all of your courses aren't listed in your portal, please be patient. Courses which had a grade lower than C are not eligible for transfer credit and will not show up in your applicant portal. Once the Admissions team has evaluated your courses and completed an initial assessment, you will have the opportunity to submit syllabi.

We may group courses together. If your courses are grouped, you are still required to submit syllabi for all the courses even though "Pending Syllabus" will only appear for the first course. 

For example, CHM 1045 and CHM 1045L are grouped courses but we would require syllabi from both.
