Tutorial #5: How to Respond to an Ontario University Offer (Transcript – Text Only)

Last updated: November 9, 2020

The Ontario Universities’ Application Centre presents: How to Respond to an Ontario University Offer – For Current Ontario High School Students.

Welcome to the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre website: www.ouac.on.ca.

This video will show you how to view your Ontario university offers and how to accept or decline offers.

To view your offers, log back in to your 101 application and select “Choices/Offers” from the Application Links menu.

You will see your offers or alternate offers in the Offers of Admission column. Select an offer to respond to it. Read the details of your offer. Accept or decline the offer, if that option is available.

At this point, if you have further edits to make to your application, select “I want to make more changes” to return to your application.

You will see your response status listed as “Unsubmitted Acceptance”. When you are done making edits to your application, go to the Review and Submit page to submit your offer to the university.

After you respond to your offer, if you have no further changes, select “I’m ready to submit my response/changes”.

You will see your response in the Amendment Summary. Scroll to the bottom and select “I Verify and Agree” to submit your response to the university.

Once you submit your response and pay any necessary fees (if you added new program choices), we will send you an Amendment Summary email with a confirmation number. If you do not receive this email, your response was not submitted – please try again.

Note: You will be locked out of your account for 1-3 business days. We recommend that you log back in to your account after that time to ensure that your responses have been saved in your application.

Now you have successfully responded to an Ontario university offer of admission. Thank you for watching!
