Located in Guelph, the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) processes applications for admission to the following programs at Ontario’s universities:

We are a not‑for‑profit, centralized application service for applicants to Ontario universities. We are a division of the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) and facilitate the process of applying to an Ontario university. Our activities are monitored by the OUAC Budget and Advisory Committee, which is appointed by COU.

We value equity, diversity and inclusion and believe that every person has a right to equal treatment. We are strengthened by diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. We have equitable and accessible employment practices, based on the principles specified in Ontario legislation (Human Rights Code and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act [AODA]).
