When will I receive my winter 2020 OSAP funding?
Student Awards & Financial Aid will confirm your enrolment electronically with the Ministry of 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?

In early 2019, the Government of Ontario announced several changes to OSAP, tuition framework, and interest free status effective for the 2019-20 academic year.
To help you understand what these changes mean and how they may impact you, please review the summary of OSAP Changes 2019-20.
The OSAP Aid Estimator is available as a tool to estimate your 2019-20 funding.
