COLS is available to school officials at all Ontario high schools. For security and confidentiality reasons, all users must register each year, even if they were authorized users in previous cycles.
New Process for COLS Registration (Cycle 2020)
Effective September 2019, only users that require “Administrator” access to COLS need to complete the COLS Administrator Registration Form [PDF] (and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org). Users requiring access other than “Administrator” access are no longer required to send a completed registration form to the OUAC.
Once the OUAC approves access and sends an email with a username and temporary password to the newly registered COLS Administrator, the COLS Administrator can register other users at their school using the “COLS Registrants” option in COLS. The OUAC will then email usernames and temporary passwords to these users. View the different access levels in COLS.
- The Secondary School Data Collection Sheet is now part of the new registration form.
- School board officials who require access to COLS must complete the COLS School Board Registration Form [PDF].
