2017 Application Deadlines for Ontario High School Students

Deadline for Ontario high school students to submit their completed application to the OUAC: January 11, 2017

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.

Recommended date to make final changes to your application: February 3, 2017

Recommended last date for students to submit all information to the OUAC to be considered for early admission. 

This information includes the following:

  • university and program changes
  • additional active choices

Note: This is a recommended deadline. The OUAC will still accept and process application changes at any time.

Notification of decision: 
May 26, 2017

You can expect an admission response by this date.

A response will be one of the following:

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

When you need to respond:
June 1, 2017

The earliest date you may be required to respond to an offer of admission and give a financial commitment of any kind (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, a student may accept these other offers before June 1, 2017, but Ontario universities will not compel a student in any way to make a decision earlier than this date.
