How to apply for spring 2021 OSAP

Friday, February 5, 2021

1. Complete an OSAP Spring Extension Form

Applicable if you have already applied for fall 2020 OSAP and/or winter 2021 OSAP and your confirmation of enrolment has been completed. This form should be used instead of a new online OSAP application if:

  • If you are adding the spring term to a fall and/or winter application.
  • If you are going on a co-op work term in spring 2021 term and require additional funding for living costs.
  • If you withdrew early from fall 2020 and/or winter 2021 term and are returning to studies spring 2021 term.

2. Complete an OSAP web application

Applicable if you have not applied for fall 2020 or winter 2021 OSAP. 

Deadlines & Promissory Note

Our recommended deadline to submit an extension form or online web application is March 15, 2021. If your extension form (or signature pages if you are required to complete a web application) is submitted to the Student Awards & Financial Aid office by March 15, 2021 we will guarantee that your OSAP assessment will be available on Quest in time for you to complete your Promissory Note by the April 26, 2021 deadline.

Spring OSAP amounts will be posted to student Quest accounts under ‘Anticipated Aid’ on an ongoing basis starting in early April. Keep checking Quest to see if it’s been loaded, then you will be able to complete your Promissory Note.

Final application deadline to submit an extension or online application is June 17, 2021.

Processing timelines

Our office will be accepting spring extensions form, but processing of the request will not begin until mid-March. We will continue to update our homepage with current OSAP processing times. 

Anticipated Aid for your Promissory Note

OSAP, award and scholarship amounts will be posted as Anticipated Aid on your Quest account each term. Spring 2021 full-time OSAP funding will be added as anticipated aid on Quest accounts and will continue to be updated throughout the Promissory Note period.
