Ontario Applicants (OUAC 101)

If you’re currently attending an Ontario high school, you’ll apply to Rotman Commerce through the Ontario Universities Application Centre in the OUAC 101 category (Applicants Currently Attending an Ontario High School).

The minimum admission requirements for Ontario high school students are:

  • Completion of an Ontario Secondary School Diploma or equivalent, with six Grade 12 U/M subjects including English 4U (ENG4U) and Calculus & Vectors 4U (MCV4U). We expect that all students will have completed Advanced Functions as a co-requisite or prerequisite for Calculus & Vectors. However, in calculating your average for admission, your top four highest marks after ENG4U and MCV4U will be used. Note that we do not accept repeated courses to satisfy the admissions requirements.
  • Admission averages will be calculated using ENG4U and your next best five U/M courses. Special attention will be given to MCV4U, as it is a prerequisite for admission.
  • Conditional offers of admission will be made based on all of your Grade 11 finals and any available Grade 12 finals/midterms (in progress). If you present a course at both the Grade 11 and the Grade 12 level, emphasis is placed upon the mark obtained in the more senior-level course.
  • As a minimum to be competitive, an average in the mid-high 80s in your top six Grade 12 U/M courses (including ENG4U in the low-mid 80s and MCV4U in the mid-high 80’s).
  • Completion of the Rotman Commerce Supplemental Application. We recommend completing this application well in advance of the posted deadline.

To apply to Rotman Commerce through the OUAC, you must apply to the University of Toronto, select the Faculty of Arts & Science at the St. George Campus, and then choose Rotman Commerce from the available program list.

Once you’ve applied to Rotman Commerce through the OUAC site, you’ll receive an email confirmation from the University of Toronto. Please ensure that user@utoronto.ca is on your email safe list. The confirmation email will contain your unique login information for the Join U of T portal. Note that it may take up to three weeks for your documents to be processed and reflected on Status Check. Monitor your Join U of T portal to submit any required documents, and check the status of your application.

Most offers of admission are made in late March. We evaluate OUAC 101 applicants throughout the spring, and require this time to ensure that we have comprehensive information on all applicants to allow for fair and balanced assessments.

Being a student in Rotman Commerce has also meant being a part of a smaller community within U of T. I have made my best friends in Rotman Commerce and have continued to see the same people in my classes and clubs throughout my four years at this incredible institution.
