Step 1: Complete your online application
The University of Waterloo has contracted with the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) to provide application processing services. When you begin the application process, you will be transferred to the OUAC website where you will complete and submit your application. You will be required to create an OUAC Account (if you do not already have one). You may have only one OUAC Account. Direct any application process questions to the OUAC.
- Select your program
- Enter your personal and application information
- Pay the non-refundable application fee of $100 CAD per program
Note: When you're finished this step, Waterloo will receive your application information within one to two business days.
A few tips:
- You will enter the names and email addresses of your referees in this step. Be sure to contact your referees in advance to make sure that they are available.
- Referees are given two weeks to complete the reference form, so be sure to complete this step at least two weeks before your program’s application deadline.
