OSAP and Payment Deadlines
The standard fall term payment deadline is August 25. If you are planning to pay your tuition and fees with OSAP, this deadline can be extended to September 11 so that it aligns with when your OSAP is released. This is called a payment deferral.
Getting a Deferral
If your OSAP application is fully processed on or before August 25 and you have funding scheduled to be released for the fall term, your payment deadline will be deferred until September 11. This will happen automatically.
If your application is on hold or you have not been approved for funding by August 25, you will be expected to pay your fees by the standard fee payment deadline.
