Full-time Student

To be considered for the full-time student assistance program (Full-time OSAP), you must be taking 60% or more of a full course load. For undergraduate students, this means a minimum course load of 1.5 credits per term. Typically, full-time students take four or five courses per term, but may take as few as three half-credit courses per term and still count as full-time in the eyes of OSAP. If you have a permanent disability, you may choose to be considered a full-time student if you’re taking at least 40% of a full course load.

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