Applying for Financial Assistance (OSAP)
The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) provides financial assistance through student loans and grants funded by the federal and provincial governments to students enrolled in full-time post-secondary studies.
Note: You must indicate the name of the college site you will be attending (Centennial or George Brown College) or your funds will not be released to you come September.
To avoid delays in receiving your assessment and funds, you must:
- June: Apply online on the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities OSAP website.
- Mid-July: Submit all supporting documentation and signature pages by uploading your documentation to your OSAP portal.
- By end of August: Enrol in course load as reported on your OSAP application. See Enrol in Courses for details.
Check your application status on the OSAP website (external link, opens in new window) . If successful, your funds will be deposited into your college site account or your bank account starting after the first day of class. See Enrolment and Fees for information on how your OSAP application affects the payment of your tuition and fees.
