How do I self-declare?
In order to self-declare, you need to indicate your Indigenous identity in your OUAC application. This also applies to Indigenous students applying for the alternative admission options in Law, Medicine, Education, and Nursing. Once you have self-declared, you will be sent information about programs and services that are especially designed for Indigenous students.
Once you have been admitted to the University of Ottawa, you can also register with the Aboriginal Resource Centre (ARC). The Centre will then contact you to brief you on their services. To register with the ARC, drop in to see them at their office at 1 Stewart on campus, or send an email to arc-cra@uOttawa.ca.
