2020 Application Deadlines for Ontario High School Students

January 15, 2020

Deadline for Ontario high school students to submit their completed application to the OUAC.

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.

February 4, 2020

Recommended last date for students to submit university and program changes and additional active choices to the OUAC to be considered for early admission. 

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

May 27, 2020

The latest date all high school applicants can expect a response from an Ontario university. 

This includes:

  • an offer of admission;
  • a refusal; or
  • a deferral, once additional information is received.

June 1, 2020

The earliest date an Ontario high school student may be required to respond to an Ontario university offer of admission and give a financial commitment (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, 2020, but Ontario universities will not compel a student in any way to make a decision earlier than this date.
