- Use the 105 application to apply for admission in 2020. For applications to subsequent years (i.e., 2021 and beyond), you must start a new application. This application can be obtained from the OUAC beginning in September of the year before studies are expected to begin. You will be required to pay a new processing fee and any applicable additional fees.
- The application service fees noted in this Application Guide are valid for 2020 admission only.
- The OUAC will send you an acknowledgement email immediately after you submit your application (assuming you provided a valid email address on your application).
Applying for Part‑time Study
At some universities, the 105 application must be used to apply to part‑time studies. If this information is not specified within the individual university information pages, contact the university directly to obtain the appropriate application form for part‑time studies.
Note: Use the 105 application if you are applying to Ryerson University for Midwifery as well as another Ryerson degree program or a program at another university. Otherwise, contact Ryerson directly for more information.
Applying to a University Where You Previously Registered
Some universities require you to apply directly through their institutions (not through the OUAC) if you were previously registered there. Rules about re‑applying vary; therefore, contact the university you previously attended to determine whether or not you should use the 105 application.
Reporting Previous Attendance at a University or College
You must provide information about all universities or colleges you attended, since universities normally consider all educational experiences to be part of the academic background. Universities require knowledge of your complete academic background to process your application.
Requests for information about scholarships, bursaries and financial aid must be made directly to each university. There is no centralized financial service in Ontario, and each university offers different levels of assistance. Some universities offer scholarships based on academic merit to international applicants. Contact the individual universities for details.
Student Health Insurance for International Applicants
International applicants and their dependents are not eligible for free medical coverage under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. As a result, Ontario universities have a compulsory private plan that provides equivalent coverage. Further information about this plan is available from the individual universities.
Study Permit (Visa)
Citizens of other countries who want to study in Canada must obtain a study permit before they can be admitted to the country. You must contact an immigration official at a Canadian Embassy that serves your country and provide proof of admission to a program of study in Canada before applying for the study permit.
Verification of Documents and Information
All documents are routinely verified by the universities. Evidence of false documents will result in you being banned from the university. Information about false or incomplete documents is shared with Universities Canada.
