Monthly OSAP Payments with a Credit Card?

Is there a way to make monthly OSAP payments with a credit card? Right now I make my payments direct from my checking account. I want to use my credit card in the same way and get the % cash back while I'm at it. I'd always be paying off my credit card in full each month and so never carrying a balance - essentially using my credit card like a debit card. Is there a way to do this?

I'm pretty sure the answer would be no, you cannot. It would be nice to get the points or cash back though.

You can also set a pre-authorized with credit card.

But do call the OSAP office and ask.

Has someone actually tried this? I don't see how they would and accept the additional % merchant fee...
