Researching Admission Requirements  

Visit the Guidance Department "University Bound" student website to learn more about universities in Ontario and how to apply for them. Students will need to ensure they are logged in with their SCDSB Google account to access the site. Students should also pick up a copy of the Beyond North University Edition in the Guidance Office. This important handout provides important information for graduating students planning to attend university.

Click here to access the Ontario Universities Information website. This easy-to-use guide to every university program in Ontario gives students prerequisites for the program but also shares exactly what marks you would require to have a chance to be accepted into any program.

University Speakers  

As students are making post-secondary decisions, they have the opportunity to attend speaker sessions where a representative from the institution comes to North to meet and discuss program information and answer questions. This is a very informative and useful tool in the research process.

A schedule of speakers is made available to students in early September, with sessions taking place right through to mid November. Students should sign up for these sessions in guidance.  Please check with your teachers for permission to attend.

For a full view of all scheduled speaking dates click here (you must be signed in to your SCDSB Google account) or check the Guidance grad board regularly. 

University Bus Trips

A bus trip to the regional university fair usually runs in late October. 

Applying To University

Graduating students planning to attend university need to listen to VTV announcements to learn when OUAC pins have arrived. Students will come to Guidance to pick up a special PIN envelope and letter generated by the Ontario University Application Center (OUAC). This envelope contains all the information you will need to access the application server and apply to the University of your choice. Students will apply to university using the OUAC website
