OSAP - Grants converted to Loan

My spouse didn't file any taxes in 2017 because she got her SIN in 2018 and I was asked to submit an affidavit for this. The affidavit was submitted on 20th March and was sent to the ministry on 26th March (as told by the financial aid officer).

This morning, I got a message on my osap account this morning with the subject of the message "Grant converted to Loan" and the message says this
"YORK UNIVERSITY - SB: Master of Business Administration (MBA)
Important information is now available about grants being converted to a loan"

On checking my OSAP account, I didn't see any changes and all the messages on my file are from before.

I met the financial officers at York and she told me I should call the ministry and the ministry told me they don't look at Osap and I should ask the financial officer at the university.

Anyone has any idea how the process works? The income verification part on my OSAP account still shows the message from August last year.
