The OSAP application uses a standard set of criteria to determine financial need, but your circumstances might be different. Check out our OSAP Forms and Appeals/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!
On Wednesdays and Fridays 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, or Thursday – we’ll be there to meet with you during the usual in-person hours.
