When will I receive my winter 2019 OSAP funding?
Student Awards & Financial Aid will confirm your enrolment electronically with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. We start this process before the holiday break. Your OSAP funding will be applied to your student account and/or sent directly to you starting in early January. This process will continue regularly throughout the term.
What can I do to make sure I get my funding at the start of the term?
