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.

Application Process

To extend an existing fall and/or winter OSAP application through the spring term, complete an OSAP Spring Extension Form. If a previous application was submitted for the fall and/or winter term(s) of the current academic year, do not complete a new OSAP application. If you have not previously applied for OSAP during the current academic year, submit a new OSAP application.

If you are enrolled as a co-op student during the spring term, review the information regarding OSAP for co-op students.

Note: You are required to log in to access the OSAP Spring Extension Form. Login instructions: Enter your MyLaurier username and Laurier password. Your username and password are the same as when logging into MyLearningSpace, Student Gmail or LORIS. If you are unsure of your password, please contact the ICT Service Desk at
