Eligibility

To receive part-time OSAP assistance over the summer session, you must meet all OSAP eligibility requirements.

You must also register in a summer course load that is less than 1.5 credits in your study period.

Application Process

Step 1.  Determine your Summer Study Period

Depending on your course registration, your summer study period will be one of the following:

OSAP Summer Study Period Study Start and End Dates (incl. exam periods)
 Early Summer  May 6 – June 28, 2019
 Late Summer  July 2 – August 23, 2019
 Full Summer  May 6 – August 23, 2019

Note: If you are an undergraduate student who is registering for both Early Summer and Late Summer courses, you are registering for a Full Summer study period.

Step 2. Apply online at ontario.ca/osap

You will need to complete an “Part-time OSAP application” at Ontario.ca/OSAP. 

Part-Time OSAP Application Deadline:
Your deadline depends on your summer study period.

Full Summer Study Period (May–August):

Step 3. Monitor and Respond

After you submit your application, begin monitoring your Carleton email account for important messages from the Awards Office. Continue to monitor your Carleton email account until your application is fully processed. Be sure to also log in to your OSAP account from time-to-time to review any unread messages in your message centre.

Step 4. Track your application online

Track the progress of your summer OSAP application by signing into your OSAP account at ontario.ca/osap. On the My Applications page click on the “Check Status” link to the right of your summer application record to view your Check Status page. 

Step 5. Getting your Funds

These documents must be mailed to the National Student Loan Service Centre, together with copies of two pieces of appropriate identification in order for funds to be released. Further instructions will be provided when you pick up your documents.
