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.


  • Our office will begin confirming enrolment 10 days before classes start
  • Students will receive a notice from the ministry once OSAP has been confirmed
  • OSAP application must be complete before we can confirm enrolment
  • Students must register for courses in both the fall and winter terms (if applicable)
  • Check status of OSAP application on OSAP website: www.ontario.ca/osap
    • Under the Things to Do heading, you should only see "School must confirm enrolment"

OSAP funding is based, in part, on the number of weeks in the study term. There was an adjustment to the dates of the Fall term and OSAP has recalculated to reflect the new Fall term dates.
