1. The Degree Locator chart is an excellent tool to use when you are beginnning your research into university education. The Locator chart provides a list of general areas of study and the universities that offer programs in these areas. Universities may not offer a program with the exact name listed in the Locator chart; however, they will offer a program or specialization in that general subject area. The degree earned is printed under the name of each university that offers the program. Once you have found the universities and areas of study that interest you, use the “Programs of Study” charts to find details about the specific programs offered at each university. For programs offered in French only, refer to the “Repère des programmes”.

2. The Admission Guidelines and Programs of Study charts provide detailed information about the specific programs offered at each university. The information beside the program name includes prerequisite courses, information about alternate offers of admission and the OUAC code that you will need to report on the application.

Be sure to read the “Basis and Timing of Offers of Admission” section at the top of each chart. This text section presents important information about how universities will evaluate your eligibility for admission, when you can expect to receive offers of admission and other valuable facts.

3. Certain programs require you to present Additional Admission Criteria in order to be admitted. These criteria can include institutional evaluation forms, reference forms or autobiographical letters. In some instances, students must attend an interview or audition, or submit a portfolio. This section outlines these extra requirements for each university. Make note of any information that is pertinent to your situation and follow up with your guidance counsellor if you require assistance.

4. Campus Visits is the section that highlights upcoming activities at the universities. Campus visits are a good way of determining whether an institution is right for you. Also check out the University Information Program (UIP) schedule and attend the UIP sessions to hear university representatives discuss the merits of their institutions. Attending UIP sessions and visiting university campuses provides excellent opportunities to ask questions and to compare various institutions.

5. Residences are normally reserved for first-year students, and the cost of residence living varies from one university to another. Many factors contribute to this, including geographical locations and availability of accommodations. The information in this section allows you to compare the approximate cost of living from one university to another.

6. All universities offer entrance Scholarships and Awards that vary in the number available, the monetary value and the awarding criteria. Renewable scholarships can be received for more than one year; non-renewable scholarships are available for only the first year. Some awards require an application, while others are automatically given to students who meet the criteria. This section provides a list of scholarships and awards that are available to first-year students. Visit the universities’ financial aid websites for more information.

7. Be sure to read the following sections for more valuable information: Timelines, University Information Program, Campus News, Programs Requiring Prior University Studies and Liaison Numbers.
