Did anyone get their OSOG for last year?

I keep asking this but no real replies come my way.
I called my financial aid office who said "they don't know why I didn't get it yet" although they said I'm eligible. So now I'm so confused.

Can you guys go log onto your osap and click "Ontario student opportunity grant" and check if you got it for the 15-16 school year?

My daughter still hasn't received hers. Last year it was received middle October.

I don't know if it's true or not, I asked on another thread and was told we must wait till after tax return submitted so they can verify the student's 2017 income. Anyhow, my daughter still didn't get hers yet and 2016-17 was the first year they gave her > $7500 loan (~$10,000) and they stated that ~$2500 would be OSOG. Maybe this is the last time for OSOG so they drag on it? Her current study year (2017-18) loan was only ~$6000. At least they took away OSOG but then gave her more grants than before so the free tuition thing was not as bad as I thought

My daughter received hers too. But they are also making her pay back another $1700.

my daughter just got hers $2600 too, so no need to wait for doing tax return :). I guess this is the last one for everyone as the free tuition thing kicked in starting 2017
