How to Apply to University

Information on Applying in Ontario: https://guidance.ouac.on.ca/student-resources/how-to-videos/

A recommended website for all Ontario university information is ontariouniversitiesinfo.ca (also known as e-Info).

A requirement for graduation, the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test, measures the standard of literacy across all subjects.

The 40 hours are prorated for International students joining our school later. They must complete 10 hours for each year in an Ontario high School. For example, if a student joins only for Grade 12, they will need to complete 10 hours of Community Service.

All students applying to Ontario Universities do so online through OUAC (Ontario Universities Application Centre)

Website : www.ouac.on.ca

***Also note that all universities have viewbooks that you can access online: https://admissions.carleton.ca/guides/GeneralViewbook.pdf

Applying to Ontario Colleges is done online through OCAS (Ontario College Application Service). Website: ontariocolleges.ca

Some universities may offer early acceptance to their programs. Early acceptance may be offered to students who excelled in their Gr. 11 U/M courses. Some important notes about early acceptance:
  • Typically it is the first and smallest round of three or more rounds of offers that universities send out.
  • Normally occurs between late November and January.
  • It is not a separate or special application students complete. It is their regular 101 application that they simply submit early, normally by mid November.
  • If a student applies closer to the mid January deadline, they will no longer likely be considered for early acceptance, they will instead be considered in a later round of admission. It does not hurt their chances of being accepted unless the university specifically asks students to apply early for a certain program.​
  • Some highly competitive programs, or those with a great deal of Gr. 12 prerequisite courses, often do not offer early acceptance.

An overall average of at least 70% is normally required to be considered for admission. Some programs may also require specific course prerequisites and prerequisite averages and/or supplementary admission portfolios.   

Higher averages are required for admission to programs for which the demand for places by qualified applicants exceeds the number of places available. The overall average required for admission is determined each year on a program by program basis. It is the responsibility of students to check the specific requirements and averages for programs. 

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a financial aid program that can help you pay for college or university. OSAP offers funding through

  • grants: money you don’t have to pay back
  • a student loan: money you need to repay once you’re done school

When you apply for OSAP, you qualify for both grants and a loan. If you don’t want to take a loan, and you’re a full-time or part-time student, you can decline it after your application is approved.Please go to the link on the checklist for more info or check the Grad website.
