Supporting Documents


If you are currently attending an Ontario or British Columbia high school, your high school will automatically upload your transcripts to your application.

If you are currently attending a Canadian high school outside of Ontario or British Columbia, you must upload your transcript to your OUAC application.

If you are a former student or are currently completing postsecondary education, we require both transcripts from secondary and postsecondary education to evaluate your application. A complete academic history is required, whether studies were completed or led to a certificate, diploma or degree.

We consider the omission of previous academic documents (grades, diplomas and degrees) as fraud. A fraudulent application will automatically be declined.
