Thanks to a new process for processing Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) payments, Student Awards & Financial Aid (SAFA) disbursed nearly $45 million in OSAP financial aid in one day - and that was before the term even started.
Starting this fall term, OSAP funding will go directly to the University to pay student fees for OSAP recipients, and remaining balances will be deposited to student bank accounts (if applicable).
Student Awards & Financial Aid will confirm your enrolment electronically with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. We start this process 1 week before classes began and you could have your OSAP funding applied to your student account and/or receive funding as early as the first week of September. 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?
