The personal information you submit when you apply becomes part of your University of Ottawa student record. Sometimes you have to make changes or allow a third party access to it. Here are the forms to do this. You can complete most transactions related to your record online through uoZone, the student portal. Try to complete your transactions online first. If you can’t do so, here are the forms you need for the main transactions related to academic procedures.
Request for name change
If you’ve legally changed your name (marriage, divorce or other reasons), complete the Request for Name Change form (PDF).
Release of academic and personal information
Your academic and personal information is confidential. If you want someone else to have access to it or to act on your behalf, you must complete the Third-Party Authorization Form to Release Student Information (PDF), and submit it to your faculty or school’s academic secretariat or to InfoService.
Updating contact information
If you want to make changes to your contact information (address, phone number, emergency contacts), log into uoZone and use the Emergency Contacts application.

In accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Education and Training directives, if you have obtained a minimum of 24 credits and are registered in an honours program, you must complete and sign the Declaration of Registration to an Honours Program form (PDF) and return it to your faculty, department or school.
Information on your grades
We publish information on your grades (exam grades, final grades, and transcript) in different ways. Your final grades are always posted in the My Grades application in uoZone. However, it’s up to your professor to let you know your grades for exams, assignments or other course requirements, while respecting practices on posting student grades. Make sure you know about these practices, which we’ve established and expect professors to follow, to respect the confidentiality of your personal information.
On-campus supplemental exams
If you’re eligible to write an undergraduate supplemental exam, you no longer need to register for this exam; however, you are responsible for checking the exam schedule and showing up at the right time and place. The exam schedule is available on the website of the faculty offering the course a month or so before the exam. Administrative fees apply.
Off-campus supplemental and deferred exams
It is possible to write supplemental or deferred exams off campus; however, this option is only available in the summer and the exam must be written at an institution within Canada.
If you wish to write an exam for a Faculty of Science or a Faculty of Engineering course off campus, fill out the form below.
If you wish to write an exam for a course which is NOT offered by the faculties of Science or Engineering, please contact your faculty or school.
Administrative fees apply for supplemental exams only.
