If you wish to begin your studies in September, January, or May, and are planning to submit an application only to York University, you may do so directly through the York website.

However, if you wish to apply to more than one university (including York), you will need to apply through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).

You may send the required documents after you submit your application. All required documents must be in either French or English, otherwise your application will not be processed.

You must submit an official transcript for all your completed courses. If you are currently enrolled in school, please send a transcript listing the courses you are taking and the marks you have received to date, followed by an updated transcript at the end of the term.

If you intend to write a national baccalaureate examination, please send us the official results once they become available.

For more information on how to apply, please consult the admission requirements.

  • Official transcripts must be sent directly to the Office of Admissions by your educational institution or in an unopened envelope sealed by the institution.
  • Documents that are not in English or French must be translated by a certified translator; the translation must be enclosed with the originals.
