101 – About

The Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) is a not‑for‑profit, centralized application service for applicants to Ontario universities. The OUAC is operated by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) to facilitate 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 online application may be used for entry points in 2017 and is valid only for the programs that appear in the list of university programs and codes.

Changing your entry point (e.g., winter to fall) only requires you to 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. While it is expected that all programs listed in this publication will be offered, the universities reserve the right to withdraw or change academic program offerings at any time.

Your OUAC Reference Number

You receive your individualized OUAC Reference Number when you submit your online application. You must refer to your OUAC Reference Number whenever you contact the OUAC or Ontario universities.
