Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) Information

What is OUAC?

“OUAC” stands for Ontario Universities’ Application Centre.

What does OUAC do?

The OUAC is an application processing centre for undergraduate admissions to Ontario Universities. The OUAC receives student applications, processes them and transfers the information to the universities. The OUAC does not make admission decisions; that is the universities’ responsibility.

Will my marks be sent directly to OUAC or OCAS?

Yes, Ontario Virtual School (OVS) can send your marks directly to OUAC, OCAS, your home, and to your day school.

How do I access my OUAC account?

You can access your OUAC account by following this link to the OUAC login page.

Therefore, a student may accept these other offers before June 3, 2019, but Ontario universities will not compel a student in any way to make a decision earlier than this date.

If you are interested in a program but the deadline has passed, you may contact the university’s admission office for assistance.

Note: You must ensure the OUAC has sufficient time to process your choices before the universities’ stipulated program deadlines.
