University Important Dates

These are important dates in your application process. Please check them carefully and keep them in mind as you apply.

September 23-25, 2016
All 21 Ontario universities are in one place at the
Ontario Universities’ Fair (OUF). Just for you! Faculty, academics and knowledgeable representatives are ready to answer your questions.

October – November 2016
Gather information about Ontario’s 21 universities at the
University Information Program (UIP). The UIP travels across Ontario after the OUF, offering fair- or presentation-style events in most Ontario regions.

By the end of November 2016
You will receive your Application Access Code Letter from your guidance counsellor with your school number, student number and temporary PIN. Keep this letter for your records. You will need this information to apply.

January 11, 2017
Deadline to submit your completed application to the OUAC.

Note: The OUAC still processes applications received after this date and distributes them to the universities. However, specific university deadlines will apply.

The initial application includes all final grades from completed Grade 11 and 12 courses and a list of all current-year courses in progress.

February 3, 2017
Recommended last date for you to submit all required information and changes.

May 26, 2017
The latest date by which you can expect a response from an Ontario university. This includes:

  • an offer of admission;
  • a refusal; or
  • a deferral, pending the receipt of specific information.

    June 1, 2017
    The earliest date you 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 admissions‑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, you may accept these other offers prior to June 1, 2017, but Ontario universities will not compel a student in any way to make a decision earlier.

    Early June to August 2017
    Admission Information Service (AIS) allows you to determine which Ontario universities still have spots available in first-year undergraduate programs.
