Ontario University Updates

The Ontario universities recognize that students are experiencing an unusual year. In collaboration with the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) and the Ministry of Education, universities are working to be as flexible as possible regarding admission processes given the various scheduling models schools are implementing across the province. The currently posted OUAC 2021 Schedule of Dates is in effect, but with adjustments to the types of course/grade information expected during each collection period.

Most universities will make conditional offers of admission on a rolling basis using a combination of Grade 11 and available Grade 12 marks. This type of assessment depends on students being registered in all required Grade 12 courses. Therefore, for university-bound students, it is essential that you send the OUAC all currently registered and projected course enrollments for the entire school year, regardless of the semester model, by the November 5, 2020, deadline.

School officials should monitor the OUAC Guidance website and Ontario university websites for updates throughout the school year.
