OUAC Operations

The OUAC continues to operate, but our building is closed to the public until further notice. We will continue to process applications with staff working remotely.

OLSAS, OMSAS and ORPAS Transcripts

For transcripts from Ontario universities/colleges, the process has not changed. You must request your transcript using the Transcript Request feature in your application. Your transcript will be sent electronically.

For all other transcripts, you must request them through the Registrar’s office to be sent directly to the OUAC. The registrars across Canada have coordinated a system for moving these transcripts, using methods that may vary by university.
