Financial Aid News & Upcoming Deadlines
2016-17 OSAP Update
We are currently processing signature pages and supporting documentation for September OSAP applications. Due to very high volumes of paperwork, we are currently not able to give updates on the status of individual student documents.
We are processing signature pages and supporting documents in date received order. If we notice an error on the signature pages or supporting documents we have received, we will notify students to their Trent email accounts.
If you submitted your documents by uploading them online through the OSAP portal or if you mailed them into our office, once they have been processed, your OSAP account will be updated online to reflect the changes. Please be sure to monitor your OSAP application status by logging into your OSAP application at www.ontario.ca/osap.
If your documentation has not been updated on your OSAP portal by August 1, please feel free to contact our office after this date. We expect that we will be able to determine why your documentation hasn’t been reviewed by this time.
Thank you for your patience,
Trent’s Financial Aid Team
OSAP for 2016-17 Academic Year
The OSAP application for the 2016-2017 school year is now open.
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.
Please visit ontario.ca/OSAP to view and complete the application.
