Post Secondary Upload of Marks

We often get lots of questions with regards to the admission process, timelines and mark uploads.  New this year, semester one midterm marks will be uploaded to OUAC and OCAS. We wanted to take this moment to answer some of the commonly asked questions we get in Student Services.

In order to apply to Universities programs, students will need a PIN which they will use to create an account with OUAC (Ontario Universities’ Application Centre).  PINs were distributed to students at the beginning of November 2021.  Note: College applications through OCAS, DO NOT need a PIN.
