To submit your response, you must first click the ‘save ordered choice’ button at the top or bottom of the screen.
Once you are ready to submit your response to OUAC, you will click ‘Review and Submit’ from the top menu bar. Review that everything is correct and then click the 'I Verify and Agree' button to accept your offer.
Congratulations! You have now successfully submitted your response and will receive a confirmation number on the following screen. Besides the confirmation number, this screen will include a summary of changes made to your application.
