Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)


Please provide us your feedback on our OSAP services by completing this online feedback form.

OSAP is a mix of grants and loans for students. Through one OSAP application, you have access to this mix of different financial aid programs, depending on your circumstances.

OSAP is open to Ontario residents who are a Canadian Citizen, permanent resident or protected person. If your home is in another province, contact your Provincial Ministry of Education for information about their student aid programs.

OSAP's objective is to supplement, where necessary, the financial resources that you (and your family, if applicable) have available to meet the costs of your postsecondary education. Assistance is based on demonstrated financial need as established by the federal and/or provincial governments.

As a government program, OSAP is not intended to meet all your educational and living costs, you are expected to help pay for your studies. What OSAP aims to provide is equality of opportunity for all Ontario students who wish to pursue postsecondary studies.

It is of the utmost importance to keep your contact information updated with OSAP and the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC). Failure to keep updated contact information can result in missed information from the National Student Loans Service Centre and OSAP that could lead to problems with your current or past student loans. You can also contact NSLSC by calling 1-888-815-4514.
