First, You’ll need to convert your JOINid to a UTORid before classes begin


All applicants to the University’s undergraduate and graduate programs receive a JOINid, which provides limited access to relevant systems.

Admitted students will need to convert their JOINid to a UTORid.


The UTORid is your digital credential at the University, used to access University systems and resources.

Your UTORid uses the same name as the JOINid, which all students receive when they apply to U of T. The UTORid simply provides access to more services.
