It’s June and it’s a great time to apply for Full-Time OSAP for the Fall/Winter 2018-19 Session if you have not done so already. OSAP applications can take six weeks to process so don’t leave it to the last minute!
The online application for full-time students is available at ontario.ca/osap.
After you apply
Here is what you will need to do after you submit your application.
Upload your documents
Before your funding can be calculated and/or released, you may have to provide supporting documents. The Required Documents page of your OSAP account will list what you need to submit.
Uploading your documents to your application is the easiest way to submit them. See our upload instructions, which outline how you can use your phone to scan them into PDFs.
Complete your MSFAA
If it’s your first time applying for OSAP, you will have to complete a Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA). The MSFAA is your lifetime student loan and grant agreement. It contains the terms and conditions you must agree to in order to receive your OSAP funding.
For 2018-19 you will be able to sign your MSFAA online through the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC) website. The NSLSC will email you instructions shortly after you submit your OSAP application.
Monitor your application
Once you have applied and submitted all supporting documentation, it’s important to keep a close eye on your application. Check your OSAP Message Centre and Carleton email account often for important messages.
