Three Steps to Reserve Your Spot at Ryerson for Fall 2021
Confirm your intentions to study at Ryerson in fall 2021 by the deadline date stated in your offer letter. If you do not accept your Offer of Admission by the deadline date, your Offer will expire.
Accepting an offer from one program/university will not cancel pending applications to other programs and/or universities. However, you may have only one offer acceptance on file at a time. You must first cancel your previously accepted offer before you can accept another offer.
How to Accept Your Offer
If you applied to Ryerson via the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC), you must log in to your OUAC account to accept your offer. Go to the OUAC website, external link, opens in new window to respond to your offer.
When you have successfully accepted your offer, you will immediately receive a single confirmation number. If you do not receive a confirmation number, your changes and responses were not saved and you should try again. After submitting your response to the OUAC, you will be locked out of your account for 1-3 business days. We recommend that you log back into your account after that time, to ensure that your acceptance was received.
Your Choose>Ryerson applicant portal will also be updated with an Accepted status within two business days if the confirmation of your offer was successful.
If you applied to Ryerson using a Ryerson Application Form or other form (not including the OUAC), you must confirm your Offer of Admission via RAMSS.
To confirm, log in to my.ryerson.ca, opens in new window and select the RAMSS tab. Your Offer of Admission will show in the Admissions section.

What happens if I don’t pay my tuition deposit or I miss the deadline?
Ryerson strictly enforces payment deadlines. To maintain your admitted status your tuition deposit must be paid correctly and on time. If we do not receive your payment on time, we will assume that you no longer wish to pursue studies at Ryerson and your place in your program will be cancelled.
If your offer is cancelled because we did not receive your tuition deposit on time and you would like to have it reactivated, please contact ServiceHub. The acceptance of late payments is solely at the discretion of Undergraduate Admissions and subject to confirmation of available space. Payments received and processed after the deadline will be reviewed on this basis.
How can I confirm that Ryerson has received my tuition deposit?
You can confirm your deposit was received by Ryerson on RAMSS, which is accessed via my.ryerson.ca, opens in new window. In order to access this account, you must first create your Ryerson Online Identity. Fill in the Activation Form at www.ryerson.ca/accounts/. When asked for your Student/Applicant ID, enter your nine-digit Ryerson Student Number. Keep a record of your username and password.
A negative balance in the Student Fees section of your Student Center on RAMSS indicates a credit on your account, confirming your deposit was received.
A Deposit Statement, which can be used as a receipt and proof of payment, is available via the Deposit Statement (.PDF) link in the Student Fees section of your Student Center on RAMSS.
I need to cancel my Offer of Admission. Will I receive a refund of my tuition deposit?

When do I pay the remaining tuition balance and fees?
Your remaining tuition balance and fees for the fall 2021 and winter 2022 terms will appear on your Ryerson account (RAMSS) in August. Your fall 2021 fees are due by the end of the first week of classes in September.

It is your responsibility to meet the academic admission requirements stated in your Offer of Admission by June 30th, unless otherwise stated in your offer letter. Conditions may include completing your high school or college diploma, achieving a required overall average, passing prerequisite courses with the required grades and/or submitting final official academic transcripts.
Here’s what you need to know about your conditions:
- You need to review your final grades and confirm you meet the conditions of your offer. You will know whether or not you meet your conditions before Ryerson, as we do not review conditional Offers until the summer months, after final grades and standings are received. By this time it is too late to upgrade or make alternative plans for September.
- Admission averages are based on two decimal places and are not rounded.
- Admission averages for secondary school applicants are based on the best six Grade 12 U or M courses, or equivalent. See Admission Requirements for equivalent requirements.
- You are responsible for ensuring Undergraduate Admission receives your final, official results by the deadline stated in your offer letter. The method of submission depends on your application method:
OUAC 101 (Current Ontario Secondary School)
Final grades and confirmation that you have obtained your Ontario Secondary School Diploma will be sent to Ryerson by your guidance counsellor, via the OUAC. It is your responsibility to inform your guidance office about enrolment in ALL of your courses, including summer, night and/or online. Review the courses and grades provided by your guidance counsellor in the Current High School Information and Grades section of your OUAC 101 application.
OUAC 105 / Other Applications
You are responsible for submitting your official academic transcripts, confirming final grades and graduation status, to Undergraduate Admissions. You should confirm in your Choose>Ryerson applicant portal that your final transcripts have been received, and follow up if they have not.
- The OUAC forwards final official college and university results only if requested on the OUAC application.
- Final Ontario college and university results requested to be sent via the OUAC may take up to six weeks from the end of the term to be received.
- Final OUAC results include final winter term grades, and do not include spring/summer term results. Applicants enrolling in spring/summer courses, must arrange for the submission of final transcripts at the end of the term.
- Institutions will send final official transcripts to Ryerson only upon your request.
- Ryerson University transcripts are not required as Undergraduate Admissions has access to your Ryerson results, including the Chang School.
- Visit Document Submission and Official Transcript Submission Instructions for more information on transcript submission.
What if you don’t meet your conditions?
Contact Undergraduate Admissions as soon as you know you do not meet the conditions of your Offer. You will be connected with an Admission Officer who will look into your file. Note: Ryerson does not verbally extend or remove any conditions of admission. Additionally, you can refer to Non-Approved Students for information and suggestions for denied or cancelled applicants.
It is important that you carefully read all pages of your Offer of Admission, available in the "My Communications" section of your Choose>Ryerson applicant portal. We recommend that you save a copy for your records. Ryerson reserves the right to withdraw Offers of Admission made to students who fail to: respond by the acceptance due date specified in an offer letter, make a deposit by the tuition fee deadline, and/or meet the conditions outlined in an Offer of Admission.
Additional Information for Approved Students
An Offer of Admission is valid only for the term/year specified in the offer letter. Generally, students who receive an Offer of Admission and wish to commence their studies in a subsequent year must reapply for admission for that year. Only in the case of a serious, extenuating circumstance will a request for a deferral be assessed. Such a request must be submitted using the Request for Deferral of Admission Form.
Admitted international students are to print their Letter of Acceptance for International Students (LAIS). This is found with your Offer of Admission, available in the "My Communications" section of your Choose>Ryerson applicant portal. We will not send the Letter of Acceptance for International Students by courier. This printed document is required for the study permit application process, which can take several weeks to complete. You should start the study permit application process as soon as you receive an offer. Contact Citizenship and Immigration Canada, external link, opens in new window for complete details. Visit the International Student Support website for additional information on preparing to study in Canada.
For study permit applicants, please note that you will be required to include Ryerson's Designated Learning Institution (DLI) number on your application. Our DLI number is O19395677651.
