Applying to College or University in 2020?
Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC)
Hello everyone! Here is information pertaining to the OUAC Applications for 2020.
Application Deadline: January 15, 2020
January 15th, 2020 is the deadline for Ontario high school students to submit their completed application to the OUAC. If OES is not your home school (day school) the final grade for any credit you earn here will be sent to OUAC. Please manage your course work to ensure you meet the above mentioned deadline.
OUAC still processes applications received after this date and distributes them to the universities; however, specific university deadlines will apply — it is best to contact the university you are applying too for more information. The initial application includes all final grades from completed Grade 11 and 12 courses and a list of all current-year courses in progress. This will be sent on your behalf from your home school.
For all 105 applicants, there is no specified deadline for submitting your application. Please contact your university directly for more information.
Regarding the OCAS Applications for 2020, the online application opens in early October 2019. You can learn more by visiting the Ontario Colleges website and their important dates listed here.
In early October, access to the online college application becomes available for programs beginning in the following academic year (August to July). You may create an account and begin your application.
February 1, 2020: Equal Consideration Date
Apply on or before this date in order to receive equal consideration for admission to programs starting the following fall. After this date, colleges consider applicants on a first-come, first-served basis until programs are full.
Note that applications to Highly Competitive Programs must be received by this date in order to be considered. As these programs receive a high volume of applicants, all seats may be filled by February 1.
Applicants are encouraged to complete their applications well before the Equal Consideration Date, as website volumes on the online application are at their highest at this time.
Many programs continue to accept applicants after February 1. Use our Find a Program tool at any time to find programs that are still open.
February 1, 2020: Earliest Offer Date
This is the earliest date that colleges may begin to send offers of admission to programs for the upcoming academic year. Offers will continue to be issued until programs are filled or wait-lists are established.
