This March, the National Student Loan Service Centre (NSLSC) is hosting webinars that detail how to repay OSAP (or your government student loan from another province, except Quebec). Webinars are a great medium as you can watch the presentation from the comfort of your couch, while still being able to ask questions as you would at an in-person presentation. If you are graduating soon, we strongly recommend attending one of the following webinars.
The NSLSC provides a robust program for repaying your loans. There are ways to save on interest, you can reduce or increase your monthly payments, and there is a repayment assistance program if you are having difficulty making payments.

Who is the NSLSC?
The NSLSC is a branch of the federal government that administers government financial aid programs across Canada. If you are receiving student loans from Ontario (OSAP) or from another province (except Quebec), your loans are being administered by the NSLSC.
When do I have to begin repaying my loans?
It is time to start repaying your loan if you have graduated from your studies, have transferred to part-time studies, or are taking a break from your studies that will last longer than 6 months. In all three cases, you must begin repaying your student loan six months after you stop attending school on a full-time basis.
