Admissions happen through OUAC, and they don't let you accept two universities so I don't think its possible. You technically could attend a university and college at the same time though.

You can only study at 2 universities if that's your program (Ex Trent/Queen's ConEd) and you can always take courses at other schools in the summer and such.

Hmmmm So, I can only apply to university through 105? No other way?

105? But yes there is only one way to apply to university, it's through OUAC / whatever is the provincial equivalent.

Logistically speaking I think it'll be near impossible to study at 2 universities anyways, and doing 8 courses a semester is pretty severe. There is no point of attending two universities concurrently.

That's a program designed for two universities. They set it up so it's possible and doable.
But it's pretty much impossible to go to Laurier full-time to get a BBA and then going to Waterloo part-time pursuing a BA.

You probably could, but why you would evades me.

If your university allows it, you can also take a course via "letter of permission" at another university. For example, if there is a course you are interested in at another university, and your university doesn't offer it, you can apply to take the course via "letter of permission" which will allow you to register at the second university, but have the course count towards your program at your "home" university.

Some schools also call this registering at a "visiting student." I have a friend here at Guelph who went home to Ottawa this summer - she is taking a calculus course at Carleton in the evenings via letter of permission over the summer months.
