Continuation of Interest Free Status
Submit an Interest Free Status application online by logging into your OSAP account.
If you’re back in school full-time and have previous OSAP loans, then you need to ensure that they're placed into interest-free status so you don't have to start repayment.
Do I need to complete a CIFS??
A CIFS is needed to keep your previous OSAP loans in interest-free status if you're:
- Not currently receiving OSAP or your OSAP funding is delayed and
- Enrolled in full-time studies in an OSAP approved program or
- On an official work term (8 month coop work term)
