UOIT encourages students of Indigenous ancestry to self-identify as First Nation (either Status or Non-Status), Métis or Inuit.
Why is it important to self-identify?
Self-identification directs us in providing culturally relevant programming and services. It also allows us to meet the following objectives:
- Help fulfill the personal and academic goals of each student.
- Expand and improve current programs and services.
- Develop new strategies to meet the needs of Indigenous students.
When can students self-identify?
We encourage you to self-identify as soon as you embark on your post-secondary studies. This can be done:
- When you apply to attend UOIT through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).
- Upon arrival at UOIT.
How do students self-identify?
You can request a voluntary self-identification form from the following locations:
