Education and OSAP

This information can be found on the Ontario Student Assistance Program website.

Your first point of contact for help with applying for OSAP is the Financial Aid Office of the school you are applying to. Out-of-province students can get help by calling 1-877-OSAP411 (1-877-672-7411) during business hours.

The maximum grant/loan amounts for a typical two-term academic year are:

  • $12,240 for full-time single students with no dependents

  • $19,040 for full-time students who are married or in a common-law relationship or a sole-support parent
  • Plus, for that two-term academic year, your annual debt is capped at $7,300, even if you get more in loans. Loans are interest-free while you're studying, and for six months after you graduate.
