What is the difference between a Reference Number and a Username?
When you first create an OUAC account, you will create a username and password, which you will have the option of changing.
If you have misplaced/forgotten your username, select “Recover your username” on the Log In page. You will be prompted to enter your date of birth and email address and your username will then be emailed to you.
Once you have submitted your online application, you will receive a 6-digit OUAC Reference Number that begins with the number “7”. If you are applying by paper, this Reference Number will be printed on your application package.
