Spring Term Funding

Students who have already received full-time Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) funding for the current fall and/or winter sessions are eligible to extend their full-time OSAP application during the 12-week spring term, six-week intersession or six-week summer session — if enrolled in the minimum full-time course load.

Form Status

The OSAP Spring Extension Form is closed for the spring 2021 term. This form will open for spring 2022 in mid-March 2022.

Application Process

To extend an existing fall and/or winter full-time OSAP application through the spring term, complete an OSAP Spring Extension Form.
