Important Dates

It is your responsibility to complete Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) applications promptly and submit any required documentation on time. We recommend applying as soon as possible for OSAP each academic year. Due to the high volume of applications received each year we recommend that you submit all application details and all required documents at least one month prior to the start of your study period. Applications submitted after this time may not be processed in time for funding release at the start of term.

Note: Funding cannot be released until applications and all required documents are submitted, and your enrolment can be confirmed at the start of term.
