Last updated: December 22, 2020

Welcome to the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre website: www.ouac.on.ca. This video will show you how to create your OUAC Account and log in to your application for the first time. To log in to your 105 application, select “UNDERGRAD (105)” for international or Canadian applicants not currently attending an Ontario high school.

Review the 105 criteria to make sure you are using the right application. Review the Application Guide and the side menus. Both contain helpful resources and instructions to guide you through the application process.

If you meet the 105 criteria, click “Go to Application”. If this is your first time applying to an Ontario university, you will need to create your OUAC Account.

To create your OUAC Account, fill in your personal information – name, date of birth and email address. Make sure you enter a valid email address. Email is the primary method of communication for the universities and for the OUAC. Note: Check your inbox regularly so you do not miss important updates from the OUAC and your university choices.

Once you have created your OUAC Account, we will send you an email to verify your email address. You will not be able to submit your application until you verify your email address, so check your inbox when you are done creating your Account. Note: If you do not receive an email, go to “Contact Information” in your application and click “Re-send Verification Email”.

Next, create a username that is personal and easy for you to remember. Create a password that is between 7 and 30 characters. Your password must include an upper-case character, a number and a symbol. You can log in to all OUAC applications with this username and password.

Review the Terms and Conditions. Then, click “Create My OUAC Account”.

Read the Welcome page carefully as it contains helpful tips to get you started. It also has information from the OUAC’s Privacy Statement you need to read before you submit your application. Select your Current Status in Canada to ensure your application will display all available programs to you. Select “Save” to continue to your application.

You are now logged in to your 105 application. You can update your username or password at any time by going to “My OUAC Account” in the side menu. You can use the chat feature if you need help while completing your application.

You have now created your OUAC Account and successfully logged in to your 105 application. Thank you for watching! Watch the next OUAC How-to Video to learn how to browse and add programs to your 105 application.
