  • If you receive an offer of admission

If you applied through the OUAC website, the offer will appear on your OUAC account and you will receive an email and offer package in the mail from the University.

To hold your spot in the program, accept your offer on the OUAC site, or complete the Admissions Response Document found in your offer package (if applicable), by the deadline indicated.

About your offer
Every offer of admission is conditional. When you accept your offer it is with the assumption that all conditions of that offer will be met by a deadline outlined in your offer letter.

Your offer of admission is valid unless you fail to meet the conditions of the offer or you decline the offer. If you are not contacted by the University, then your offer of admission stands as outlined in the original offer (i.e., we do not send out a final offer letter). In this case, NO NEWS MEANS GOOD NEWS.

Don't hesitate to contact us, with any concerns.


If you have been admitted to a program at the University but are unable to begin your studies in the fall, you may request to defer your offer for one year. 

To be considered for a deferral you must:

  • accept your offer of admission on the OUAC website by the deadline noted in your offer letter
  • meet all conditions outlined in your Offer of Admission
  • submit the deferral application
  • not attend any other postsecondary institution during the deferral period

Deferral application process:

  1. Complete the application. The deferral application is available June 1 to July 30, 2022 through WebAdvisor under the 'Student' menu. To access WebAdvisor, you will need your central login information (sent to you via email upon receipt of your university application). You must submit the deferral application by July 30, 2022.
  2. Applications are considered on a rolling basis for students who satisfy the conditions of their offer. Once we have considered your application we will communicate the decision to you by email.
  3. If you are granted a deferral, you will receive a new Offer of Admission by the following February, provided that all conditions of the offer are fulfilled.
  4. If you submit a deferral application and later choose to withdraw that application, please notify Admission Services by email.
  • Vulnerable Sector Check/Screening
    If you are entering into first-year Early Childhood Studies or are a transfer applicant that has a placement/internship starting in your first semester at the University, you may be required to complete a Vulnerable Sector Check/Screening before your placement/internship begins. More details will be provided with an offer of admission.
  • Authorization required to study in Canada
    In your offer package, you will receive an official offer letter and visa information sheet that will support your application for Canadian Immigration Documents. It is important that you apply for your Study Permit and Co-op Work Permit as soon as you receive your offer package.

  • Apply for residence by June 1, 2022
    If you have received an offer of admission, you are eligible to apply for residence.

Applications for fall residence open online on February 1, 2022. The application process is a two-step process that can take a few days to complete because you need to wait for step 1 to be processed before you can complete step 2.
