All fees are non-refundable. We will not forward your application to any universities until you submit full payment to the OUAC. We will not refund fees for withdrawn university choices.

Reminder: There may be additional fees if you change your program choices after you have paid.

All fees are listed in Canadian dollars.


1. Base Application Fee: $150

  • For your initial 3 program choices.
  • Required of all applicants.

2. Additional Choice Fee: $50/choice

  • For each additional program choice beyond your first 3 (e.g., if you add 2 additional university choices, you must pay $100 in addition to the base application fee).
  • Notes:
    • There is no fee for replacing a program choice with another program choice at the same university.
    • If you amend your application to withdraw a program choice at 1 university and add a program choice at a different university, you will be charged $50 for the new program choice.
    • 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 its affiliates). Some universities may further limit the number of programs you can apply to.

3. International Service Fee: $10
