With the end of April just around the corner, soon we’ll be confirming your enrolment to OSAP for the release of your summer funding.
Here’s how to know if your summer funding will be redirected to Carleton to pay your fees.
If you applied for Summer OSAP using the extension request on Carleton Central
When you apply for summer OSAP using our extension request, we update your fall/winter OSAP application to include the summer session. This means that preferences on your fall/winter application, such as fee redirection, are carried over to the summer term.
If you opted in for fee redirection on your fall/winter 2017-18 application, we will be redirecting your summer funding to Carleton.
If you applied for Summer OSAP through your online OSAP account
If you had no OSAP application for fall/winter and had to start a new application at ontario.ca/osap for the summer, then you would have set your preference for fee redirection when completing your application.
If you opted in for fee redirection, then we will be redirecting your summer funding to Carleton.
How much of my funding will be redirected?
This depends on your summer funding entitlement. If your account balance at Carleton is greater than your entitlement, then all of your OSAP funding will be sent directly to Carleton. If your account balance at Carleton is less than your entitlement, only a portion will be redirected to bring your account balance to zero. The remainder of your funding will be deposited into your bank account.
Once we have confirmed your enrolment, you can review disbursement details on the funding summary page of your OSAP account.
Changing your mind
If you have changed your mind and would like to opt in or out of fee redirection, you will need to submit a OSAP Fee Redirection Change Request to our office. But don’t delay! If you submit the form too close to the start of your study period, it may not be processed in time before your funding is released.
