Student Profile (SP) - Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I find my OUAC Reference Number and my University of Guelph-Humber ID?

Your OUAC Reference Number: OUAC generates your OUAC Reference Number, and you can find it through your OUAC online account. Your OUAC Reference Number is 10 digits (the first four are the year). When you complete your Student Profile Form, please add a 0 after the last digit to make your OUAC Reference Number 11 digits (e.g., if your OUAC Reference Number is 2016123456, on your Student Profile Form you should enter 20161234560).

Your University of Guelph-Humber ID: You will find your University of Guelph-Humber student ID in the email that acknowledges receipt of your application from the OUAC. Your University of Guelph-Humber ID number will be a 7-digit number (e.g., 0123456).

Can I complete the SP from any computer?

Yes. We do, however, suggest that you use one of the following browsers:

  • Netscape 6 or above
  • Internet Explorer 6 or above
  • Mozilla 1 or above

If you use earlier versions of these browsers, you will probably have difficulties. We also suggest that you enable Java Script in your browser.

Who will see my Student Profile?

When you submit the form electronically, it is directly entered into our database system via a secure connection. It will only be reviewed by the Admissions Committee for an admission decision. No one else will see it.

If you have completed a Supplementary Information Form for Students with Disabilities, Student Accessibility Services at the University of Guelph will review the form prior to Admission Services at the University of Guelph-Humber reviewing it.

How is the SP used?

Our Admissions Committee will review your profile in May for a potential admission decision (if your average falls within a discretionary range).

What are the discretionary ranges?

When an applicant's average fall under the final cut-off average, but is within up to five percent of the cut-off range, their average falls within the discretionary range. The number of applicants within this range who will be offered admission is, in part, determined by the number of available positions within programs.

If there are spaces available in the program in which you are interested and your grades fall within the discretionary range, an Admission Committee may review your SP to determine admissibility.

If I complete the Supplementary Information Form for Students with Disabilities (SIF-D) do I also need to complete the SP?

Yes. Each form addresses different factors that may impact admissibility. If you have experienced factors that fall under the categories on both forms, we encourage you to complete and submit both the SIF-D and the SP.

Important: Before you submit documents to support your Supplementary Information Form for Students with Disabilities, please ensure your name and University of Guelph-Humber ID number are on all of them.

Do I need to complete all of the questions?

All questions, even the form itself, are optional. However, we encourage you to answer questions you feel will help us assess your application.

Does style and spelling count?

Yes. The content and form of your submission may affect our admission decision. Review your responses carefully to ensure your answers are letter-perfect.

Who should I choose to be my school reference?

Your school reference should be a teacher, counsellor or school administrator who knows you well.

Who can be a community reference?

A community reference could be someone from your community such as a group leader, a coach or someone who is aware of your personal situation.

Why can't I type more text in each text area?

We indicate the word limit for each answer next to the question. We provide space that we expect will be adequate to answer each question.

I clicked "Continue" and the form is now blank. What happened?

You have a maximum of one hour to complete and submit the form. If you need more time, we suggest that you first complete all your answers in a word processing application and then cut and paste them into the online form. Before you paste your answers, click the Refresh or Reload button on your browser.
