Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Withdrawing from the university

If you are choosing to leave Ontario Tech for two semesters or more, you must complete a program withdrawal form (found on MyCampus, under the OT Documents tab) and if applicable, return your laptop. This form must be signed by your academic advisor, if you currently have courses in progress.

If you have a laptop to return you must have your program withdrawal form stamped and signed by IT (Room SW100 in the Gordon Willey Building at the north Oshawa campus location or 61 Charles Street at the downtown campus location) and attach a Schedule B form (this is the receipt IT will give you when you return your laptop).

You can email your completed form to connect@ontariotechu.ca or drop it off at the Office of the Registrar.

Note: If you do not formally withdraw from the university or officially drop courses, all courses will be graded and you will be responsible for paying any fees associated with the courses. Please refer to the important dates and deadlines section of the academic calendar.
