Application Update:

OCAD University will continue to accept applications to our undergraduate Digital Futures and Indigenous Visual Culture programs (first year and upper year entry) until May 15, 2014. Visit the Ontario Universities Application Centre to apply now. After the application is received further information on portfolio/supplemental application submissions will be emailed. 

The application for all other undergraduate programs is now closed. 

Guide to Admissions:

All applicants apply through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC).

OUAC processes your application and transmits it electronically to OCAD U.

OCAD U acknowledges receipt of your application by email and advises you of the date, time and location of your portfolio assessment or the due date of your supplemental application materials for our new BA program.

If you are applying to one of our studio-based programs, portfolio assessments are held primarily during OCAD U’s Study Week in February each year. Your portfolio must be prepared before this time.

If you are a successful applicant, you will receive a conditional offer of admission beginning in April, which must be accepted through OUAC.

OCAD U makes offers of admission based on your portfolio, supplemental application materials and available academic grades. All offers are conditional upon the completion of the admission process (meeting academic requirements and submitting necessary documents).

After you respond to your offer of admission, the OUAC will electronically notify OCAD U that you have accepted your offer of admission.

OCAD U will send you correspondence that will include important dates, deadlines and information about online registration.

For information on the admissions process for our graduate programs please visit the Graduate Studies section of our website.
