Income appeals are used to request a review of your OSAP file based on exceptional circumstances regarding your parents' or spouse's income.
Expense appeals are used to request a review of your OSAP file based on exceptional expenses that you have incurred during the pre-study or study period.
Complete the Residency review forms if you and/or your family have lived in Canada for less than 12 months, and Ontario has been the only province where you've resided. All forms must be completely filled in, and include original signatures.
Credit check review form
Use this form if your OSAP application was denied because of a failed credit check and you wish to have this decision reviewed.
Use this form if you've had a final rift with one or both parent(s)/step-parent(s) that prevents you from having contact with them to complete your OSAP application.
Exceptional circumstances review
This appeal is used if you had to withdraw because of an exceptional circumstance beyond your control and one or more of the following is the result of your withdrawal:
- You have an OSAP overpayment in your current study period.
- You have an overpayment restriction preventing you from receiving OSAP funding.
- Your OSAP grants have been, or will be, converted into loan.
Non-supporting step parent appeal
OSAP expects dependent students to provide parent and step parent information on their OSAP application. This form can be used in some cases where a step parent does not provide direct or indirect support for the student, and wishes to have their information removed from the OSAP assessment.
OSAP academic probation appeal
Use this form if you are on OSAP academic probation and you wish to appeal to have it removed due to documented extenuating circumstances beyond your control.
Students are eligible for OSAP funding during the probation period. OSAP academic probation is not directly related to your academic standing.

Use this form if you're restricted from receiving OSAP due to lack of academic progress and:
- You've waited the length of your OSAP academic restriction and would like to be reinstated back into the OSAP program, or,
- Your OSAP academic restriction is still in effect, but would like to appeal to have it lifted based on extenuating circumstances.
