Important Background Information

Annual fluctuations in application volumes are due to several factors and should be interpreted with caution.

  1. These confirmations are applicant acceptances for full- time, first-year, fall-entry, undergraduate university study. These figures represent the number of confirmed acceptances for undergraduate study at an Ontario university. Applicants can accept only 1 offer of admission at a time.
  2. The “Ontario Secondary School (101)” category refers to the confirmations received from Ontario secondary school students who were registered in secondary school during the 2022-2023 academic year.
  3. The “All Other Applicants (105)” category refers to all domestic and foreign confirmations for first-year university entry other than those applications received from Ontario secondary school applicants. These include out-of-province/country secondary school students, mature students, transfer students, etc.
  4. There are many reasons for fluctuations in confirmation volumes. Refer to individual university websites or contact their admission or public relations offices for further information. Do not refer to individual institutional figures without including the institutional commentary, as applicable.
Note: The universities’ comments on application and confirmation statistics do not necessarily reflect the views of the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre or those of the Council of Ontario Universities.
