2017-18 OSAP Information

Starting next year, OSAP is changing. You could be eligible for free tuition.

We encourage all students to apply for OSAP as the application includes consideration for non-repayable grants as well as loans. Even if you do not intend to borrow money, you can elect to access only the grant funding if you are deemed eligible. OSAP takes into account many factors so all students, regardless of financial circumstances, are encouraged to apply.

Visit the OSAP website for up to date information, to register and to complete your OSAP profile: ontario.ca/osap
