SUMMER 2022

Registering for courses for the Summer 2022 term and applying for OSAP? Please review the following information on how to apply:

FULL-TIME GRADUATE STUDENTS: All Graduate students must apply directly through the OSAP website for the summer term as there is no supplemental option available. Please note, if you have already received an OSAP assessment that includes the summer term (till end of Aug 2022), this option is not applicable.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS: To be eligible for FULL-TIME OSAP for the summer term, students must be enrolled in a minimum 60% course load, or in a minimum 40% course load for students who self-identify as having a permanent disability. If you have a current Fall/Winter 2021-2022 OSAP Application, the summer term is an extension of this application and only requires the completion of a Summer Supplemental Application. Please note, April 8th, 2022 is the deadline to submit the Summer Supplemental Application if wishing an automatic tuition deferral. If you do not have a current Fall/Winter 2021-2022 OSAP application, and you are registered in a minimum 12 week study period for the summer term, an online 2021-2022 OSAP application is necessary.
