January 15, 2024, marked the deadline for submitting complete applications to Ontario universities through the Ontario University Application Center (OUAC).
Whether you’ve already received an offer from your preferred university or are in the process, the following information, sourced from the OUAC website (www.ouac.on.ca), may prove useful to you. Please take a moment to read it carefully and consider sharing it with others who may find it helpful.
OUAC Key dates
May 29, 2024
The latest date all current Ontario high school students who submitted their application by the January application deadline can expect a response from an Ontario university. This includes an offer of admission, a refusal or a deferral, once additional information is received.
June 3, 2024
The earliest date a current Ontario high school student may be required to respond to an Ontario university offer of admission and give a financial commitment (e.g., registration deposit, residence deposit, etc.).
All other admission-related elements, including scholarships, other forms of student assistance or financial incentives, and offers of residence, are considered part of the offer of admission. Therefore, a student may accept these other offers before June 3, 2024, but Ontario universities will not compel a student in any way to make a decision before this date.
Once we receive your fee, process your application and distribute your application information to the universities, you can contact them directly for information about the status of your application.
