ONTARIO UNIVERSITY APPLICATIONS All students applying to Ontario Universities will be doing the whole process on-line through OUAC (Ontario Universities Application Centre). Website : www.ouac.on.ca The OUAC deadline for applications is JANUARY 16, 2019 for equal consideration. Since the website gets extremely busy in the new year, the recommended deadline is to complete your application before Christmas holidays. To see the tutorial videos on how to apply visit: www.ouac.on.ca/ugrad-tutorials
Special Notes on Applications: 1) The cost for 3 program choices is $150.00. Each additional choice is $50.00. Once you have submitted your application to make a change of program to another school you will pay an additional $50.00. If changing programs within the same school there is no extra fee. 2) Obtain your confidential PIN Access Letter from SFX Student Services (ARRIVES IN NOVEMBER). 3) The easiest and recommended method of payment is by credit card. 4) All academic information (courses, marks) will be forwarded automatically to OUAC by LBP. 5) Please ensure that you have the appropriate prerequisite courses for your program choices.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR FORMER ESL STUDENTS AND RECENT ARRIVALS TO CANADA If you're applying for a program and you have not completed at least three years full time in an institution where English is the language of instruction (aside from in language courses), located in a country where English is an official language, you may be asked to provide your official score in one of the English language tests recognized by the university. See the university websites or your guidance counsellor for help.
OUTSIDE OF ONTARIO UNIVERSITIES For "out-of-province" universities, you must apply to the university directly. Check the school's website for details on how to apply. OUAC can provide academic information to: Bishop's, UBC, U of Calgary, Concordia, Dalhousie, McGill, U of New Bruns., St. Mary's, Simon Fraser and U of Victoria. However you must apply directly to those schools first.
What if I don’t get accepted? The OUAC Admissions Information Service
Starting in early June until the end of August you can use the Admissions Information Service to find possible programs with space still available.
You must be completing your diploma with 6 U/M courses by early September and have at least a 60% average, although higher averages are usually required.
Think about upgrading marks in Summer School or Adult Education. Universities will still accept students up until September for some programs after summer school ends.
Attend college for at least one year in the same program and then apply to university to be considered based on your college marks. Check with the university first for agreements between universities and colleges that may be already in place.
