Financial support for those taking summer courses

Besides OSAP, there are a few additional financial supports available to students who are enrolled in summer courses this year.

  1. Bursary: Students who are receiving government financial aid (OSAP or out of province funding, etc) for the summer term can apply for a bursary/grant. The application opens May 6 in Carleton Central and the deadline to apply is July 9th. Here are instructions on “how to apply” (simply select “Summer 2021 instead of “Fall/Winter”).
  2. UPASS request: This summer, the UPASS will be included with summer fees (if enrolled in 1.0 credit or more). If you don’t need it, opt-out to cancel the fee.

Apply to change a grade to SAT

The application to change a grade to SAT is now available here. UNSAT grades do not require an application; all F grades will be automatically converted to UNSAT on your transcript.

Please consult an ESP/IESP advisor about how this could affect your admission to a program in the fall. We can walk you through your best options.
