At the University of Ottawa, we understand that you play a major role in your students’ decisions to pursue postsecondary education. Here’s some useful information to help you to fully inform students who are interested in joining us at uOttawa.

What your students need to know

Check our website on undergraduate admissions to find out everything your students need to know about how to apply for admission as undergraduates at the University of Ottawa, specifically: admission requirements, deadlines, study programs, events and contact information.

One of the most common questions we get from students is how they should submit documents to support their admission request. We ask applicants to upload all documents necessary to evaluate their application using uoDoc in their uoZone account. A list of required documents and instructions on how to submit them is available on the application.

If the student is admitted, we will ask for official documents to be sent by regular mail. Details will be included in the student’s offer.

Does your student have an Individualized Education Program (IEP)? If so, we invite you to consult our academic accommodation service.

The annual Schulich Leader Scholarships program was established in 2012 by the Schulich Foundation. The scholarships recognize the academic excellence and community leadership of students intending to study science, technology, engineering or entrepreneurship and business enterprise. They are worth between $80,000 and $100,000 and are awarded to certain students who demonstrate outstanding community leadership, academic excellence and financial need. To be eligible, applicants must be in their final year of high school or in CEGEP and be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. Students must be nominated by their high school or CEGEP. Applications must be submitted online on or before January 26, 2022.

Please visit the nomination process section of the Schulich Leadership Scholarships website for step-by-step instructions on how to nominate a student.
