101 – Program Choices
In the Program Choices section, you can add, delete, change and order your program choices, as well as respond to offers of admission. View the 101 How-to videos for detailed instructions.
You may apply to as many Ontario universities as you wish; however, you are limited to a maximum of 3 program choices at any 1 university (including affiliates).
Some universities may further limit the number of programs you can apply to. See the university information pages in this application guide for more information or contact the universities directly.
Typically, it does not matter how you number your university or program choices in your application.
Whether you list a university or a specific program as first, second, third, etc., in the application is not usually a factor in the universities’ admission decisions.
A university must make its policy clear in its own information where there are exceptions. See the university information pages in this application guide for more information or contact the universities directly.
Your numbered list of choices does provide valuable information to university admission offices. This is particularly true for limited enrollment programs. Admission officials use this data to project the number of applicants who are likely to accept offers of admission, so the university can plan its resources accordingly.
