OSAP 2018-2019

The 2018-2019 OSAP application launched November 8, 2017. Coming to Ryerson from an Ontario high school? You’ll be linked right to OSAP after you submit your application through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).

OSAP: You might be eligible for more!

The OSAP application uses a standard set of criteria to determine financial need, but your circumstances might be different. Check out our OSAP reviews page to see how we can take a closer look at your living arrangements, travel costs and more. If you have further questions, please get in touch or drop by the ServiceHub – we’re always happy to help!

Office Hours: Wednesday Closures

On Wednesdays we are unavailable at the ServiceHub, as we’re dedicating extra effort to behind-the-scenes processing to get OSAP out even faster. Come see us Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday – we’ll be there to meet with you during the usual in-person hours.
