The deadline is quickly approaching for accepting offers on the OUAC application site. Our deadline for Engineering offers is Friday June 1 at midnight (Toronto/Eastern time). As a word of advice, don’t leave it to the last few minutes. If you have computer problems and miss the deadline there aren’t any extensions available, the system closes.
Preliminary data indicates that we will likely meet or exceed our targets for the programs but we won’t know for sure for a few more weeks while we check the data and ensure that all the offer conditions have been met. However, if you’re accepting an offer with the intention of transferring into Computer Engineering, it is pretty clear now that there will be no spaces. If Computer Engineering is your true goal, you’re better off accepting an offer at another university if you have one.
This likely even applies to students in Electrical Engineering looking to switch to Computer. In the past this has been straightforward, but the numbers may make this switch difficult from now on due to upper year course space limits. Computer/Electrical Engineering transfers are generally possible in the early part of the programs, but there are never guarantees.
Overall, our general advice still applies: don’t accept an engineering offer with the intention of immediately trying to change programs. Generally, this is not going to happen because our lab and class facilities are full and going any further impacts on the quality we can offer the current students.
