I am taking a summer school course. How will the universities get my marks?

Applications: Undergrad (101) Categories: Application Process

Grades from summer school courses are submitted to the OUAC by the summer school or the school board. Verify with your summer school that either they or the school board will be sending the marks directly to the OUAC on your behalf. If this is not the case, you must arrange for an official final transcript to be sent to the OUAC and for photocopies of the transcript to be sent to each of the universities you have applied to, if required. Indicate on the photocopies that the original was sent to the OUAC…

I am taking courses at 2 different schools. How will my grades be sent to the universities?

Applications: Undergrad (101) Categories: Application Process

If you are taking courses at more than 1 school, the school that created your OUAC Account will be designated as your “home” school.

I transferred to a different school after first semester (or halfway through the school year). Who informs the OUAC and the universities about this change?

Applications: Undergrad (101) Categories: Application Process

If you apply for admission while at one school and then transfer to a different school, your new school must advise the OUAC of this change. Your new school will provide the OUAC with their name and school number (MIDENT), your new Secondary School Student Number (SSSN), if applicable, and your Ontario Education Number (OEN). The OUAC will then notify your university choices of this transfer. Remember to update your application if your mailing address has also changed…

I want to apply to an admission point other than fall but only fall admission is listed. What should I do?

The universities have supplied the OUAC with the admission points available for each program. You will need to contact them directly to verify whether they offer admission points other than those listed. If they offer other admission points, they will either indicate to you that they will change your file once they have received your application information or they will contact the OUAC to have their university-specific information changed to include the other admission points…

I’m taking a summer school course and my friend is upgrading (or repeating) a course. Will this affect our admission?

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