Guidance counsellors' zone

At the University of Ottawa, we understand that you play a major role in your students’ decisions to pursue postsecondary education. Here’s some useful information to help you to fully inform students who are interested in joining us at uOttawa.

Guidance Counsellor Information Day

This fall, we organized a series of virtual half-day information sessions designed to help you share everything your students need to know about our exciting undergraduate programs, generous financial aid and scholarships, practical admissions steps and much more.

Thanks to all of you who attended! It was heartening to see so many of you from across the country working so hard to ensure that this intelligent, talented and idealistic generation remains on track to pursue post-secondary studies in 2021.

What’s new?

In response to popular demand, we have produced a serious of resources to help you review what we covered during our half-day information sessions. Feel free to share with any colleagues who may have missed our events.

Please see our resources below.


What your students need to know

Check our website on undergraduate admissions to find out everything your students need to know about how to apply for admission as undergraduates at the University of Ottawa, specifically: admission requirements, deadlines, study programs, events and contact information.


One of the most common questions we get from students is how they should submit documents to support their admission request. We ask applicants to upload all documents necessary to evaluate their application using uoDoc in their uoZone account. A list of required documents and instructions on how to submit them is available on the application.

If the student is admitted, we will ask for official documents to be sent by regular mail. Details will be included in the student’s offer.

Academic Accommodation

Does your student have an Individualized Education Program (IEP)? If so, we invite you to consult our academic accommodation service.

Additional Information

How you and your students can contact us

The best way to reach us is through our Liaison Office, which is in charge of recruiting undergraduate students across Canada. Liaison officers travel the country to meet future students in their schools, introduce them to the University of Ottawa and discuss their plans with them. It also hosts several events, such as open houses and Guidance Counsellor Information Days, and coordinates campus tours.

Feel free to contact the Liaison Office to obtain copies of any of our publications, arrange for a liaison officer to visit your school, or get answers to any of your questions.

Please send us your feedback or suggestions to help us serve you better!
