OSAP and Financial Assistance

The Ontario Student Assistance Program, or OSAP, is a financial aid program that can help you pay for your education at Loyalist College. OSAP offers two types of funding; grants (money you don’t have to pay back) and loans (money that you need to repay when you finish school). When you apply for OSAP you are automatically considered for both grants and loans but if you would like to receive only the grant funding you can choose that option after submitting your application.

The basic premise of OSAP is that the responsibility for funding a student’s education rests primarily with the student and his/her family. Inherent in this premise is the expectation that plans be in place to make adequate preparations to meet the student’s upcoming financial need.

For more information, including a quick estimate, or to apply, visit the OSAP website.
