Last updated: November 18, 2021

The Ontario Universities’ Application Centre presents: How to Edit Your Completed Application – For international and Canadian applicants not currently attending an Ontario high school. (OUAC How-to Video #4)

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

This video will show you how to make edits to your completed application and send the edits to the universities.

After you submit and pay for your application, you can log back in to review your information and make any edits.

(Usually you can do this the next business day after you completed your application.)

Log in to your application.

If you have forgotten your username or password, you can recover them here.

At this point in the application process, you can:

  • review the application information you provided to the OUAC.
  • edit your personal or address information.
  • edit your university or program choices (including adding or withdrawing choices).
  • respond to university offers of admission.
  • pay your application fee (if necessary).

To review or edit your application information, click any of the application links to go to the applicable section.

Your name and date of birth are read-only. Contact the OUAC if you need to update this information.

When you make edits, remember to click “Save” at the bottom of each section to save your changes to your account.

Note: If you exit your application at this point without completing the “Submit” process, your changes will not be sent to the universities.

Go to “Review and Submit” to verify and submit your changes.

At this stage in the application process, you can also make changes to your university or program choices under “Choices/Offers”.

Here you can add a new program, withdraw a choice or edit the details of programs that you have applied to.

Note: For an existing program choice, you may edit only the details that you initially specified.

You cannot edit the details for a program with an offer or an accepted offer.

To change a program or university choice, you must first withdraw your existing choice and then add the new program.

Note: If you add program choices, you may have to pay additional fees.

Any additional choices over and above your initial 3 programs are $50 for each choice, unless you withdraw and add a choice at the same university.

There are no refunds for withdrawn choices.

Keep in mind that some universities may not accept changes past a certain date. Check the university’s own information for any program-specific deadlines.

When you are done making edits, go to “Review and Submit” to verify your changes and send them to your university choices.

Your edits will appear in the Amendment Summary.

Scroll down and select “I Verify and Agree” to submit your edits.

If you make any changes to your application that require payment, you must pay by credit/debit card.

Once you submit your edits and pay any necessary fees, we will send you an Amendment Summary email with a confirmation number.

If you do not receive this email, your changes were not submitted – please try again.

Now you have successfully made edits to your completed application and sent them to your university choices.

Thank you for watching!
