Throughout the next two weeks, U of G Admissions staff will be busy calculating final cut-off averages and sending out all third round offers of admission for September 2011.

All decisions regarding admission will be posted to the OUAC website no later than May 30th, and all students will also receive notification by mail regarding their admission status.

If you receive an offer of admission, please remember that the OUAC must receive your response to any offer no later than Thursday, June 2 at 4:30 p.m. EST.

For students who have applied to more than one program at the University of Guelph, please note that you will receive only one offer of admission. We will only consider your second and third program choices if you do not meet the specific requirements for your first program choice.

While we understand that many applicants and their families will have questions and concerns in the upcoming weeks, please note that we anticipate a higher than usual volume of calls and emails during this time, so we ask for your patience when contacting our office.

*** Please note that we cannot tell you over the phone or via email if you have received an offer of admission, and we cannot discuss a particular application with anyone other than the applicant without his/her previous written consent. Also, please note that we will not send an email when a decision has been made regarding your application.***

If you have received an offer of admission and you plan to apply to live in residence, please note that you must submit your residence application and the $500 non-refundable deposit no later than 4:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, June 2, 2011. If you have questions about how to apply or how to submit your deposit, please contact the Student Housing office by calling 519-824-4120 x58701, or by email at

The online application for residence requires EITHER your U of G Central Login, OR your U of G Student ID#. At this point, most applicants will not have received their Central Login, so you will need to use your U of G ID #, which is the seven digit number found at the top right hand corner of your acknowledgment letter or offer of admission letter.

Students who have accepted an offer of admission will receive the 2011 New Student Guide in the mail in late May or early June. The New Student Guide will include important information about selecting courses, which can be done immediately upon receiving the Guide in the mail.

If you are still enrolled in high school courses, we encourage you to keep working hard towards successfully completing your courses. Remember that we will re-evaluate you for an Entrance Scholarship of up to $3000 when we receive your final grades in July, even if you weren't eligible for one based on the grades with which you were admitted!
