$45M in OSAP payments in one day

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

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).

After working with Information Systems & Technology (IST) to create a whole new process, SAFA can now disburse OSAP payments to thousands of students with the click of a button, significantly improving accuracy and reducing the time it takes to get OSAP payments out.

Anticipated Aid for your Promissory Note

OSAP assessments, awards and scholarships for the winter term will be posted as Anticipated Aid on Quest within a few days of being available. Amounts will be updated, as required, throughout the Promissory Note period.
