To remain eligible for OSAP funding, full-time students are required to maintain satisfactory academic progress during the terms in which they receive OSAP funding. The requirements are:
- Undergraduate students must pass 1.5 units each term
- Students identified with a permanent disability on their OSAP profile must pass 1.0 units each term
- The number of units passed is averaged throughout the academic year (Sep-Aug). For example, if you pass 1.0 units in the fall and 2.0 units in the winter, your average will be 1.5 units per term, which means you’ve met the academic progress requirement.
- Co-op work terms are not included in the academic progress calculation, even if you’re enrolled in courses
- Part-time terms are not included in the academic progress calculation, even if you’ve applied for part-time OSAP
- Frequent withdrawals or program changes may be considered a lack of progress
