In April 2022, Ryerson University changed its name to Toronto Metropolitan University, which will be implemented in a phased approach. You will see the Ryerson name across campus, online and in our official communications for a period of time. Learn more about our next chapter.
The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a government financial aid program that can help you pay for university.
OSAP can help you pay for:
- books, equipment and supplies
- compulsory student fees charged by a school
- living expenses (full-time students only)
- childcare (for students with children)
OSAP offers funding through grants (money you don’t have to pay back) and loans (money you need to repay once you’re done school).
OSAP is open to Ontario residents who are Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or protected persons, external link.
To learn more about OSAP, such as how to apply, deadline dates, and more, please visit our various OSAP webpages.
