Ontario students, applying to any of the listed Canadian universities outside of Ontario, can authorize the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) to transfer their academic data to the listed out-of-province university.
The applicant must sign the release authorization and record the OUAC Reference Number on the out-of-province university application form as applicable.Use the following links to explore universities in Canada, outside of Ontario:

There is no equivalent of the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) for American universities, so each university requires a separate application.
Always check that your American university is fully “accredited” (Does it offers degrees that are recognized both in the United States and internationally – Canada?).
Credits from two-year American colleges may not be transferable.
- The ACT (American College Testing) assessment, or “A-C-T” as it is commonly called, is a national admission examination that is required by many American colleges and universities. Check the admissions section on your university’s website to see if the ACTs are an admissions requirement.
- The SAT Assessment, or “S-A-T” as it is commonly called, is the other national admission examination that is required by many American colleges and universities. Grade 11 students can write a PSAT (Preliminary SAT) to become familiar with the format of the test. Go to www.collegeboard.org to find out how to register.
