The Acknowledgement/Amendment Form (see below) you receive from the OUAC may also be used to select additional universities or programs. This form must be accompanied by the appropriate fee.

Please note: Each program selection counts as one choice and applicants are limited to a maximum of three program choices at any one university.

APPLICATION DEADLINES

There is no general application deadline - they vary from institution to institution and sometimes depend on the program the applicant is seeking to enter. Applicable deadline dates are provided by the individual universities (or noted in the university information pages). Unless otherwise specified, the deadline date stipulated indicates the date at which the application must arrive at the OUAC.

If the deadline for a program in which you are interested has passed, you may still contact the university to find out if the deadline has been extended. Note that the OUAC will process applications received after a deadline date and will neither refund nor return fees paid.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND CHANGES (AMENDMENTS)

Acknowledgement from the OUAC

Depending on the time of year and the volume of mail received at the OUAC, it may take up to ten working days to process your application. When we have processed your application and forwarded it on to the universities you have selected you will be mailed an OUAC Acknowledgement/Amendment Form which will include your application reference number. Review the information on this form to verify that it is correct.

Amendments to Your Application Information

If any information on the Acknowledgement/Amendment Form is incorrect or missing, make the required changes directly on the form and mail it to the OUAC. If no changes are required, keep this form for your reference.

All requests for changes to your application data must be received in writing and must be signed by you or by an authorized representative. You must provide this authorization in writing to the OUAC. When we receive changes from you, we update your file and send you a new Acknowledgement/ Amendment Form reflecting only the changed information. Be sure to include your application reference number on all correspondence.

Amendments to Current University Selections

With the exception of additional university/program choices (noted above), changes to your existing university/program choices do not involve additional OUAC fees.

If you wish to "drop" or delete an existing selection and "add" a different selection in its place, please make these changes on the Acknowledgement/Amendment Form and mail it back to the OUAC. You can also change the specific program applied to within a particular university selection.

Acknowledgement from the Universities

Most university admissions offices should also acknowledge receipt of your application by sending you an acknowledgement form and should provide you with a list of the specific supporting documents they require to make an admission decision. Be sure to include your application reference number on all documents submitted.

TRANSCRIPTS

It is the applicant's responsibility to arrange for official transcripts to be forwarded to each of the universities to which they have applied.

Do not send transcripts or supporting documents with this application as the OUAC cannot forward these documents to the universities and will not be able to return the documents to you.

OFFERS OF ADMISSION

The OUAC does not make admission decisions. Evaluation of application files are performed at each university and decisions are made by the universities.

Offers are made at different times throughout the processing cycle, depending on the university and program. Accepting an offer of admission from one university will not cancel your application to other universities and/or programs.

An applicant may have only one acceptance on file at any time. If you accept a subsequent offer, the OUAC will automatically cancel the acceptance that is currently on file and record the new acceptance.

Responses to offers of admission must be signed and dated. When required to meet a deadline, an acceptance may be faxed to the OUAC and the original mailed to us with the note "Previously Faxed" indicated at the top. The OUAC's fax number is (519) 823-5232.

APPLICATIONS FOR PART-TIME STUDY

The 105F Application Form must be used to apply to part-time studies at Carleton, Guelph, Ontario College of Art & Design, Ryerson (evening only) and York. To apply for part-time studies at any other university, you must contact that university directly.

TUITION AND OTHER FEES AND COSTS

Tuition fees for candidates applying to Ontario universities under the "Student Authorization" status are higher than those for Canadian Citizens. In addition, tuition will vary from institution to institution and may sometimes differ depending on the program being studied.

Generally, an international student should anticipate requiring approximately $20,000 CDN for each year of study in Canada in order to cover tuition, ancillary fees, lodging, meals, books and supplies, health care and health insurance, transportation and other personal expenses (entertainment, recreation, telephone, laundry, clothing, etc.). Again, these costs may vary depending on where you decide to attend university.

FINANCIAL AID

Requests for information on scholarships, bursaries and financial aid must be made directly to each university. There is no centralized financial service in Ontario and each university offers different assistance. Some universities offer scholarships based on academic merit to international students. Please consult with the individual universities for details.

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE

International students and their dependants are not eligible for free medical coverage under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. As a result, Ontario universities have a compulsory private plan which provides equivalent coverage. In 1998-99, the annual premium payable by the student ranged from approximately $570 CDN for an individual to approximately $1,800 for a family of three or more. Further information on this plan is available from the individual universities.

STUDENT AUTHORIZATION (VISA)

Citizens of other countries who want to study in Canada must obtain a visa before they can be admitted to the country. You must contact an immigration official at a Canadian Embassy that serves your country. Note that you must have proof of admission to a program of study in Canada before applying for the authorization.

VERIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS AND INFORMATION

All documents are routinely verified. Evidence of falsified documents will result in applicants being banned from the university. Information about falsified or incomplete documents is shared with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.

APPLICANT AUTHORIZATION

By signing and submitting the admission application form, applicants authorize and agree to the following: 1) complete university verification of all information provided as part of this application for admission; 2) that an admission granted on the basis of this application or supporting documents will be revoked if the information given is untrue in any material respect; and, 3) that information about falsified or incomplete documents is shared with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada and its institutional members.

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

The personal information collected on this application will be used by the Ontario Universities? Application Centre and by the universities you have chosen for making decisions related to admissions. Afterwards, this information may be used by the Ontario Universities? Application Centre, the universities, the Ministry of Education and Training and Statistics Canada for statistical and research purposes and, for these purposes, may also be linked with student information databases maintained by the university you choose to attend.
