OSAP is changing for the 2017-18 academic year. A number of existing OSAP grants have been consolidated into a single up-front grant, the Ontario Student Grant (OSG).

In addition to the OSG, the new OSAP offers improved grant eligibility and interest-free student loan support. Together, these changes will make tuition more affordable to low- and middle-income students.

All new and returning students who apply for full-time OSAP will be considered for the new Ontario Student Grant (OSG).
