Full-time Student

To be considered for the full-time student assistance program (Full-time OSAP), you must be taking at least 60% (1.5 credits) of a full course load. If you have a registered disability, you may choose to be considered a full-time student if you’re taking at least 40% (1.0 credits) of a full course load.

Note: Students completing a work-term for a co-operative program are considered full-time for OSAP purposes.
