OSAP
is Ontario’s flagship student support program, offering a mix of grants and loans to thousands of students each year. The Ontario Assistance Program outlines eligibility for grants and loans and includes an estimator for how much aid you may be eligible to receive. Starting in 2017 (for the 2017-2018 school year), OSAP is changing. If your family income is under $50,000 a year, your tuition is covered. Even if your family earns more, the new OSAP is still there to help you. Visit ontario.ca/osap for more information.

Don’t forget to fill out an application for W-O’s Commencement Awards in the Spring. Information will be presented at the Grad Meeting.
