READ YOUR MAIL – Once you have applied for University or College, you will receive lots of mail from the various institutions to which you have applied. This mail will include important information such as Audition Info, Portfolio details, Personal Statement of Experience Info and general timelines. Go through each package carefully so you don’t miss important dates.
COURSE CHANGES – If you make changes to your timetable, be sure to remind your Guidance Counsellor to change it in OUAC or OCAS.
Also, if you have completed a night school course, it is your responsibility to inform your Counsellor of your mark. Otherwise, it will NOT appear on your OUAC or OCAS application.
- Marks now appear in OCAS...be sure to check these for accuracy. Report any errors to Student Services. If you have not already done so, pick up your Ontario Education Number (OEN) in Student Services. This number is required for your application. To apply, go to www.ontariocolleges.ca
