Out of Province

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:

American Universities

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.
  • Career Cruising has a section on U.S. Schools.
  • The College Board has a Find a College feature that may help you to explore and narrow your choices.
  • Google maintains a list of American Universities.
  • National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)
