I've applied

Our admission officers handle over 60,000 applications every year. Processing documents, calculating admission averages and evaluating applications can take a few weeks after you’ve sent us all your required documents.

Log into uoZone to track your status

  • You should receive an email acknowledging receipt of your application within two weeks of applying. Keep an eye on your junk mail inbox just in case. If you do not receive it within two weeks, email admissions@uOttawa.ca.
  • Be sure to save the acknowledgement of receipt email. It tells you how to log into the uoZone student portal to track the progress of your application. It also includes your student number, user ID and password.
  • Once you have logged into uoZone, check your Admission file for the list of supporting documents you need to submit to complete your application.

Your grades don’t tell the whole story?

At the University of Ottawa, we believe that grades don’t always tell the whole story. So, if you’re a Canadian citizen or have permanent resident or refugee status, your average is below the average required for the program you’re applying for and you would like to strengthen your application file, you can tell us about challenges you’ve faced that may have affected your grades by completing a declaration of personal experience.

Use of this declaration is optional.

NoticeExceptions – This declaration is part of a pilot project for Canadian students and students who have permanent resident or refugee status except for those applying to programs in the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Education, programs leading to a Juris Doctor designation or graduate studies.

Make changes to your application if necessary

If you’re eligible, you can add the CO-OP program or French immersion to your application, or even change your program choice, if the program you want is still open and accepting applications.

If you’ve applied online through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC), you can open a session on the OUAC website to make changes to your application.

If you’ve applied directly to the University of Ottawa, email us at admissions@uOttawa.ca.

Explore scholarship and bursary opportunities

You can apply for scholarships and bursaries as soon as you've applied to the University of Ottawa and have received your uoAccess ID and password.

Explore all of your opportunities through the Online Scholarships and Bursaries search engine, also available in uoZone, on the Applications tab.

We will be in touch with you regularly to update you on the status of your application.

We will also contact you to invite you to our events, so you can learn more about our faculties, programs and campus. Take part in a campus tour or one of our admission events to get to know us even better. You can participate in a number of activities even if you haven’t received an offer yet.
