Check Your Status 

Once you have submitted your application, check your status at the OSAP website for assessment details starting in late April. You will receive notifications from OSAP either on paper or on the OSAP message centre (depending on your preferences) when there are status changes. 

Receiving Your Funding 

A few days before the start of your classes, OSAP will ask U of T to confirm your enrolment (your full-time status). You must be registered in the required course load, and you must have a status of "Registered" in the 2017 summer session on ACORN. Registration means that you've either made the minimum payment, or have received a fee deferral. Waitlist or interim courses are not applicable towards your course load. Students who applied by April 10 should receive their funding within the first two weeks of classes. UofT does not deposit your OSAP funding for tuition amounts into your ACORN account, all of your funding will go into your bank account. Immediately after you receive OSAP funding, you are responsible for paying your fees. If you're ineligible for OSAP, you must start paying your fees when you receive notification of your OSAP ineligibility/refusal. 

Need to make changes to your application information?

You will be able to make changes to a saved Summer OSAP Extension Application until you submit your application. After your application is submitted, changes to your summer plans or circumstances must be provided to the UTSC Registrar's Office with a notification in writing. For changes to your income, please provide a signed letter indicating the new total income for the summer study period, and indicate the source of the income (e.g. employment, scholarship).
