How to Apply and Transfer

Applying to the Sociology Program

In order to be considered for entry into the Sociology Program, you must apply through Ryerson Admissions. High school, mature, and international students are all encouraged to apply. Normally, students are admitted into the program for the fall term of a given academic year.

To learn more of the admissions requirements and deadline dates, please visit Ryerson’s Undergraduate Admissions Office.

Transferring to Sociology from another Ryerson Faculty of Arts Program

If you wish to transfer into the Sociology Program and are currently a student in English, Criminology, History, Environment and Urban Sustainability, Geographic Analysis, Philosophy, Politics and Governance, or Psychology, you need to apply by the stated deadline in the current Academic Calendar and submit both a Faculty of Arts Program Transfer and Secondary form. Please review information on how to transfer in this way through the Ryerson Calendar.

Transferring from another Ryerson Program (non-Arts)

If you wish to transfer into the Sociology Program and are currently a student in a non-Arts Program, you will need to do so through the Undergraduate Admissions Office. To learn more about this type of transfer option, please review the information on the Undergraduate Admissions Procedures and Policies website entitled "Current/Former Ryerson Students," and visit the Ryerson Admissions Forms website.

Transferring from another Institution
