Attention Students: 2013-14 applications for OSAP and Ontario Tuition Grants are now live
For all students who are considering applying for government funding for the upcoming 2013/2014 academic year, the online application for both the Ontario Tuition Grant program (OTG) and the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) are now available.
First time applicants: note that you will be required to submit a Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA) to your closest post office in order to have your funding electronically transferred to your account. Returning students who have already submitted an MSFAA will not need to resubmit this document, provided that their banking information from 2012/13 has not changed. If you have changed your banking information, access the “Bank Account Change Request form” in the National Student Loans Service Centre “Toolbox” to update your information.
Students who rely on OSAP as their primary source of funding for university should indicate that all fees be redirected to the school on their behalf to pay for their outstanding tuition/residence costs. Students who do not choose the redirect option will not have the opportunity to have late payment fees reversed by the Business Office.
Similar to past years, the Student Awards Office encourages all students to apply early for OSAP funding. Due to the high volume of applications, students should apply by mid-July to allow for processing of documentation and to ensure that their funding will be available to them at the start of the semester. After mid-July, the Student Awards Office cannot guarantee processing of documentation prior to the start of the fall 2013 semester. Students who apply for OSAP funding and submit all required documentation before August 1 will be eligible to have their late payment fees reversed by the Business Office provided the redirection of fall OSAP funding covers all outstanding fees. See Business Office requirements for full details.
