Use the documentation tool to determine the identity and legal status documentation you’ll need to get your UTORid and/or TCard. The documentation required will depend on who you are, and whether this is your first UTORid and TCard.
Your documentation must be unexpired and original (digital or photocopies are not accepted).
If the name on your identity and legal status documentation already matches the name in the University’s record system (e.g. ACORN, HRIS), then you’re ready to begin the process of activating your UTORid and/or receiving your TCard.
If your name doesn’t match and requires correction, contact your registrar or business officer before completing the UTORid and TCard process. If you prefer to use a different name than one on your documentation in the University’s record system, please review the name resources section for more information on the University’s name change process for students and staff.
Why we verify your identity and legal status

To begin studies at the University of Toronto, your legal status (e.g. Canadian, permanent resident, international) must be verified to:
