Communication of Admission Decisions

Admission Services will use the mailing address and/or email address supplied by the applicant to communicate decisions. Applicants using the OUAC 105 application or the applications found on the University of Guelph website can access their admission decision via their specified Admission Portal (access to this online tool will be made available once the application has been received). The University will not be held responsible for decisions sent to these addresses but not received.

Applicants who are not currently in any secondary or post-secondary program can normally expect to receive an admission decision within a three to four week period following receipt of the application and all official documents by Admission Services, provided they have not applied to a limited enrolment program. Typically, applicants for limited enrolment programs will be considered at the same time in competition for the spaces which are available.

Students currently enrolled in a post-secondary program will normally be required to submit all official transcripts at the conclusion of their studies before a final admission decision is made. An applicant who submits an official post-secondary transcript at the conclusion of the fall semester of their current academic year may receive an early offer of admission. This offer of admission will be conditional upon successful completion of the student's current academic year and conditions specified by the Admission Committee for the degree program to which the student is admitted. Official final transcripts and other official documents specified in the offer of admission, must be received in Admission Services by the published deadline.
