Hello,

My nephew and niece, both hold Canadian citizenship but have lived and been educated abroad, would like to move to Canada (Ontario) to study at an Ontario university and then settle in Canada.


What are the requirements to apply to Ontario universities as a domestic student, as paying international student fees are not an option for these students?

Do they need to be resident in Ontario for some period of time prior to applying?

Are Ontario based school records required?

Thank you for your help,

Helpful Aunt

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your niece and nephew's situation and questions with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

Regarding your first question,

What are the requirements to apply to Ontario universities as a domestic student, as paying international student fees are not an option for these students?


You can find this type of information on most of the Ontario universities' websites in the Office of the Registrar section or in the Student Accounts and Financial Aid pages.

Most of them state that Canadian Citizens are eligible for domestic tuition fees.

In terms of the length of time residing in Ontario, If you inquiring about applying to OSAP, you can find some information related to the residency requirements in our Settlement.Org Who is eligible for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)? article.

Regarding your question,

Are Ontario based school records required?



They will have to contact the university/program they are interested in directly to find out which records will be required.


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
