Student Financial Assistance During COVID-19

On May 13, 2020, the Office of Social Innovation (OSI) and Student Financial Assistance (SFA) at Ryerson University partnered to host a virtual Town Hall on Student Financial Assistance during COVID-19. The purpose of this Town Hall was to respond to pressing student inquiries and needs about financial aid during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Led by Carly Basian, Manager of Student Financial Assistance, the Town Hall aims to  provide answers to the following questions:

  1. What is SFA doing to help Ryerson students during this time?
  2. What funding has been made available for students (at the university, provincially, federally)?
  3. How will COVID-19 affect my OSAP funding?
  4. What happens if I can't return to my studies because I can't afford tuition/living expenses?
  5. Can I speak with someone in SFA about my current situation?

In addition to the recording, a copy of the Town Hall presentation slides and transcript have been made available below.
