I’m getting a warning about my address when I try to submit my application. Why is this happening?

You must provide a home address and a mailing address, even if these 2 addresses are the same. A mailing address is the address where you receive postal mail. It is not your email address.

I’m trying to log in but my PIN isn’t working. What’s the problem?

Be sure you are typing the correct PIN. Double-check the characters and use the Shift key rather than the Caps Lock key to insert capital letters. If you’re still having problems, contact your guidance counsellor to make sure you have the correct PIN.

My current school is wrong in the application. How can I update this information?

If a school you previously attended created your 101 account, you must wait until after you submit your application for your school information to be updated. You cannot update this information yourself. Your new school must advise the OUAC of this change. Once submitted, your guidance counsellor can call us to update your school information.…

The university is asking me for my 11-digit OUAC Reference Number. Where do I find this?
