$45M in OSAP payments in one day

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).

Paying your fees with OSAP made easy!

OSAP funding will be sent directly to the University to pay your fees starting Fall 2018.

How much OSAP will be redirected?

  • OSAP funds will be redirected to Waterloo to pay the current term fees owing less any other anticipated aid listed on quest (e.g. scholarships, bursary).
  • Any remaining OSAP funding will be deposited in your bank account.
  • Allow a few weeks for OSAP payments to appear on your account summary.

What if I made a payment to my account?
