Checking Online Accounts
Most students have completed their initial applications through OUAC and OCAS. It is important for all applicants to check their email and online accounts for information on supplementary applications, residence, and financial aid. Remember that most schools require students to register or to log-in to unique on-line accounts. Log-in information is usually provided via an acknowledgement email.
Ontario College Programs
The deadline for application to most Ontario college programs is Feb. 1. Students do not need a password or PIN, but they will need to create an account. Applications are made online through the Ontario College Application Service @ www.ontariocolleges.ca . Application help workshops will continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the next two weeks.
Transcripts for OUAC and OCAS will be updated shortly after first semester exams. It is very important for student to check their on-line accounts for accuracy. Students who are enrolled in independent studies or correspondence courses must check their accounts to make sure that all credits are accounted for. Students should ensure that any external (AMDEC, Red Hill, ARCT, GELA, Gary Allen, etc.) marks are reported to Student Services.
Most colleges and universities are currently in the middle of their admission reviews. Some students will receive offers in the coming weeks, others may not receive an offer until second semester mid-terms have been received. Students shouldn’t panic if they have not yet received an offer; the majority of offers are released in late April or early May.
Applications for many Christian universities, including Calvin, Dordt and Redeemer, will continue to be received and reviewed on a rolling basis. It’s not too late to apply!
