Frequently Asked Questions: During Application

I see a section for adding Volunteer Experience but I cannot locate an area to enter this information. How can I enter my volunteer experience?

Applications: Rehab Sciences (ORPAS) Categories: During Application

The Volunteer Experience section is only for applications to Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology. You can access this section from the Personal Submissions section of the application.

I’m not sure if my course(s) will satisfy the prerequisite requirement. Can you tell me?

Applications: Rehab Sciences (ORPAS) Categories: During Application

ORPAS does not review prerequisites. You will need to contact the Rehabilitation Schools directly for more information.

I’ve entered some prerequisites but it still says “No” for submission entered. Why is it not changing to “Yes”?

Applications: Rehab Sciences (ORPAS) Categories: During Application

The submission entered will only change to “Yes” once you’ve entered a prerequisite course for each prerequisite category.

If I am using my Advanced Placement (AP) classes as prerequisites for medical school, how do I send my AP transcript to OMSAS?

Applications: Medical (OMSAS) Categories: During Application

If your AP transcript contains grades for prerequisite courses, you will have to mail or fax your request to the AP College Board. The College Board will then mail your transcript to OMSAS. Note: OMSAS is unable to receive the electronic AP transcripts and does not have a 4-digit institution code.

If I submit on the deadline date and order a transcript from an Ontario institution online, will my transcript be considered on time?

Yes, receipt of an online transcript request (that forms part of the application) by the stated deadline satisfies the transcript deadline requirement.

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 stuck on the “Additional University Details” screen in the 105 application. What do I do?

Applications: Undergrad (105) Categories: During Application

If you have not previously applied to your university choices, this section does not apply to you. Simply click “Save” and move on to the next section of the application.

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 application did not charge me for supplemental fees and I am worried my application will not be processed.

Some applicants are exempt from paying supplemental fees. The system will automatically exempt you if you qualify.
