Applicants are quick to reach out if they have questions about their application but we need them to wait at least two weeks so that we can ensure that we have time to do the work required.
Please encourage your students to apply well before the January 11 deadline.

Important Notice from Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC)
RE: Fee Structure for 2019 Cycle
“Previously, the OUAC waived the cost if a student asked to withdraw a choice and add a new one. With our (OUAC) recent move to more "real time" processing, however, there has been a dramatic increase in multiple changes to applications. This has caused confusion for applicants and university administrators as to the current status of the application. As a result, we are no longer waiving the cost when students ask to withdraw and add new choices after they've submitted their payment.”
OUAC's fee structure is made up of the following:
- base application fee of $150 for the first 3 university/program choices (which is the same as previous years)
- An additional choice fee of $50 for any additional university/program choices beyond the initial 3.
- There is no charge for modifying a choice within the same university.
