Appeals and Reviews

If you are not receiving enough OSAP funding, you might be eligible for an OSAP Review. Students may request that their OSAP eligibility be reviewed if they have a special situation which is not recognized in the standard OSAP assessment of financial need. Note that submitting an OSAP appeal or review does not guarantee additional funding. Below are examples of common OSAP Appeals and Reviews.

Note: OSAP reviews must be submitted 40 days before the end of your study period. For a complete list of deadline dates at TMU, visit OSAP Important Dates and Deadlines. Although we can review a number of items, there are a few situations that do not qualify for review, including:

  • If you've received maximum OSAP
  • Your parent(s) arbitrarily refuse to contribute to your education-related costs
  • Your citizenship status
  • Independent status criteria 
  • Deadline dates
  • Funding distribution

  • Not living with your parent(s)’ even though they live within 30km of TMU.
  • Living with your parent(s) and paying room and board.
