Applying to Out of Province Universities
Students interested in applying to universities outside of Ontario need to access the admissions information on the university’s website. Each university has their own deadlines and requirements for additional information, and the student needs to be diligent in meeting those requirements. In many cases, the student must send the university an official school transcript which can be accessed in Student Services. The Ontario Universities Application Center (OUAC) will provide academic data to Acadia University, Bishop’s University, the University of New Brunswick, St. Mary's University, the University of British Columbia, Concordia University, Dalhousie University, McGill University, University of Calgary, Simon Fraser University, and the University of Victoria. Students must have applied through the OUAC. The applicant must sign the release authorization and record their OUAC Reference Number on the out-of-province university application form.

Students who do not complete these hours will not meet the Ministry of Education requirement for graduation.
