What is OSAP?
The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is an application-based government aid program for Ontario resident students. Based on the government's assessment of your educational costs and expected financial resources, OSAP offers a mixture of repayable loans and grants (money you will not need to repay).
The information on this site is aimed primarily at full-time York University degree students applying for OSAP aid, but we also have helpful information for certificate students, exchange students and non-degree students. The Student Financial Services site has information about part-time loans and grants.
