Even with community funding, scholarships and bursaries, it may be necessary to apply to the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).
What is OSAP?
OSAP is the program that gives you loans based on your financial need while you attend university. The loans are interest-free until 6 months after you graduate from university. Visit the OSAP website for more about OSAP and its requirements.
Ontario Tuition Grant
The Ontario Tuition Grant gives students 30% off Ontario tuition (to a set maximum) if they are attending university. Students already accepted into OSAP will automatically be considered for the 30%. If you have not applied for OSAP but are interested in this grant, you can still apply to the tuition grant. Learn how by using the Ontario OSAP Eligibility Wizard.
