OSAP eligibility requirements

Apply for OSAP

Interest free status

Undergraduate students are considered full-time by OSAP if they are:

  • Enrolled in a minimum of 1.5 units for at least 12 weeks, or
  • Have an approved OSAP Disability Verification form on their OSAP profile; and are enrolled in a minimum of 1.0 units for at least 12 weeks.

1.0 units = 40%

1.5 units = 60%

2.0 units = 80%

2.5 units = 100%

If you are enrolled in more than 2.5 units you are still considered 100% for the purpose of OSAP.

PD courses are not counted toward your course load.

Graduate students are considered full-time by OSAP if they are:

  • Registered as a full-time student for at least 12 weeks, or
  • Have an approved OSAP Disability Verification form on their OSAP profile; and are enrolled as a part-time student for at least 12 weeks

Graduate students may or may not be required to take courses as part of their degree.  Therefore Graduate students are either full-time or part-time.  A full-time Graduate student would have a course load of 100% on the OSAP application.
