University Applications  

Students wishing to apply to Ontario Universities are reminded of the OUAC Final Deadline for completing university application – Wednesday, January 17. Here is a message from OUAC:

“With the January 17 application deadline quickly approaching, we ask that you encourage those students who have not yet submitted their 101 application to do so as soon as possible to avoid the frustration of slower online response times and delays. 

Students are not able to view and make changes to their application until the OUAC receives and processes their payment.

Note: It may take several days for us to receive and process online banking payments. You may wish to encourage your students to pay their application fees by credit card, as we process credit card payments immediately. “

Extended Applicant Services hours will be available before the application deadline: 
Monday, January 15 to Wednesday, January 17: 9 am to 7 pm (ET)
Applicant Services Phone: 519-823-1063
