TEAS – How to Apply

Last updated: September 12, 2022

Step 1: Research your university options and the application process.

Step 2: Use the TEAS application to apply for admission to a program leading to the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) Certificate of Qualification in a consecutive program at an Ontario faculty of education.

  • To apply to a concurrent program, use the 105 application.
  • To apply for a graduate degree in teacher education, contact each faculty of education directly.
  • If you hold an OCT Certificate of Qualification and wish to take additional courses in education, use the university application available at each faculty of education.
  • For information about mature student status, contact each faculty of education directly.

Step 3: Request official transcripts from all postsecondary institutions that you attend, have attended or have withdrawn from.

  • Read the transcript instructions carefully, as some types of transcripts must be ordered within your application, while others you will need to order directly from your institution.

Step 4: Prepare and submit your application by the deadline for French and English programs.

Each faculty of education reaches its own admission decisions. TEAS only provides the application processing service.


  • If you created an OUAC account, you do not need to create a new one. Do not take over an account created by someone else.
  • We will process and forward applications to all requested universities and programs regardless of your qualifications or the completeness of your application. There are no refunds.
  • The order of your choices does not affect the universities’ admission decisions.
The OUAC and the universities and programs reserve the right to amend this information at any time.
