February 2022: ORPAS calculates a sub-GPA. You can check your Verification Report by logging into your ORPAS application. This report is available once your academic record has been reviewed by ORPAS. The Verification Report will present an up-to-date summary of all information contained in your application, including what transcripts and Confidential Assessment Forms have been received. It will also include the sub-GPA and a list of all courses/grades used in the calculation.  

Late March 2022: Emails will be sent to students receiving an invitation to write the CAP (admission entrance exam) and to unsuccessful applicants. Emails will be sent to the email address that was provided to ORPAS in your online application. Please check your settings on your email to ensure that the interview invitation is not re-routed to your “junk” mailbox. Please note: requests to be considered for the Alternate CAP must be submitted by the date indicated in the initial CAP invite. No exceptions.

Monday, April 4, 2022: Applicants invited to the CAP have until 11:59 ET on this date to RSVP for the CAP. No exceptions. 

Wednesday, April 13, 2022: Alternate CAP day for students with religious observances and exam conflicts, by special request only. 

Saturday, April 16, 2022: CAP day. 

May 13, 2022:  Earliest day for offers of admission to be sent*. Unofficial admission results will be emailed to all applicants who have not yet received a response. Applicants who receive an offer of admission will be provided with instructions on how to respond (accept/decline) to an offer via ORPAS. Individuals placed on the waitlist will be provided with information on what to expect. Hard copy notification letters will also be mailed to all applicants on this date. It may take up to two weeks to receive the package depending on your permanent mailing/home address reported in ORPAS. 

May 29, 2022: First-round offers expire*.

June 7, 2022: Provisional acceptances become firm acceptances*. 

Important Note for Applicants Placed on the Waitlist: If you have firmly accepted another Physical Therapy offer from the University of Western Ontario, Queen’s University, McMaster University or University of Ottawa, we are not permitted to contact you with an offer. You will be removed from the University of Toronto’s MScPT waitlist and no further official correspondence takes place. There are no guarantees that we will make offers to applicants on the waitlist.

June 30, 2022: Deadline for receipt of final transcripts (with degrees conferred) at ORPAS*. This includes transcripts for any courses that were in progress when the ORPAS application was submitted. This applies to applicants who have received an offer of admission AND applicants on the waitlist. Typically the “degree conferred” notation is only added after the official convocation ceremony, so take this into consideration when ordering transcripts. 


*Official CASper test dates and specific testing times should be verified on the CASPer website and official ORPAS dates should be verified on the ORPAS website.
