Guidance Counsellor Information Day

Our Guidance Counsellor Information Days, hosted by the Liaison Office, are the ideal forum for us to share what’s new at the University of Ottawa with the guidance counsellors and academic advisers who help students make the right academic and career choices.

Please join us to learn more about our new inclusive admissions process (including the Declaration of Personal Experience), which gives promising students whose grades do not meet standard admission averages a chance to explain how their life experience should strengthen their applications.

You can also get updates on our undergraduate programs and network with like-minded colleagues.

Register today for events in Ottawa, the GTA and Montreal!
