By submitting an OSAP application you will be considered for integrated federal and provincial loan funding. As well, you automatically be assessed for the non-repayable grant programs outlined in the Overview and Available Funding section.
If you are not able to access your OAN from the 'Forgot Your OAN?' tool, you can visit the Ontario Financial Aid Office at the post-secondary institution (university or college) closest to your current residence. You must present your SIN card (or proof of SIN) and government issued photo ID in order for the financial aid office to retrieve your OAN.
If you are outside of Ontario or are unable to visit an Ontario post-secondary institution you must complete the Request for an OSAP Access Number (OAN) form and send it to the Ministry of Training College and Universities. The Ministry will send you your OAN by mail.
The OSAP application is a 3 step process:
STEP 1 - SUBMIT YOUR OSAP APPLICATION
The OSAP application is available on the OSAP website in May. Students must submit an OSAP application before each year of their studies. Please click on the OSAP logo below to visit the OSAP website and submit an application.
If you are unable to complete an online application you can submit a paper application to the Student Awards Office.
|STEP 2 - SUBMIT YOUR SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION TO THE QUEEN'S STUDENT AWARDS OFFICE|
When you submit your OSAP application online you will be automatically informed of the specific supporting documentation you must submit in order to complete your application. All supporting documentation should be sent to the Queen's Student Awards Office. Your application will not process until the Queen's Student Awards Office has received and processed your supporting documentation.
At minimum, all students must submit Signature pages. Other supporting documentation may include (but is not limited to):
|STEP 3 - SUBMIT YOUR MASTER STUDENT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AGREEMENT (MSFAA)|
Print, complete, and sign your MSFAA
After you submit your online OSAP Application for Full-Time Students, print your MSFAA. You can also ask the ministry to mail it to you, but we recommend that you print it yourself. If you applied for OSAP using a paper application, your MSFAA will be mailed to you. Read the terms and conditions, then complete and sign your MSFAA.
Take your MSFAA to a Canada Post Outlet
Take your MSFAA to a designated Canada Post Outlet right away. You don’t have to wait for classes to begin. You may also take your MSFAA to a NSLSC kiosk, but they are only available at certain times of year.
Refer to "Getting OSAP" on the OSAP website (click on "Full-Time Students", then "Filling out your application")
Once you have submitted your application and supporting documentation please check your online OSAP account to review the status of your application. It is your responsibility to ensure that your application is complete.
