101 – About

The Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) is a not‑for‑profit, centralized application service for applicants to Ontario universities. The OUAC is a division of the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) and facilitates the process of applying to first‑year undergraduate programs (bachelor’s degrees) and to advanced standing in these programs.

Each university reaches its own admission decisions, and the OUAC provides the application processing service.

The 101 application may be used for admission in 2020.

To change your admission point (e.g., winter to fall), you must amend your original application.


Notice About this Application Guide

The OUAC and the universities reserve the right to change the information presented, as necessary, at any time. The universities reserve the right to withdraw or change academic program offerings at any time.
