I plan on applying for OSAP as a parent. Decided it was time to turn my old college diploma into a degree through Athabasca.

Just want to make sure I'm filling the asset section right. I've been putting away money for my childrens' education in their own savings accounts, their grandparents also contributed to their fund. Do I include that in the savings/other assets section? I have three kids, and there's quite a bit accumulated.

Anybody knows when OSAP sends their repayment package or whatever for people who have graduated? I thought I remembered hearing it was the beginning of Sept, I need to get on the RAP in time before they start snatching money from my account

Hi There,

I finished my study on Aug. 31, 2016. My OSAP balance is about 51,000$ and estimated monthly payment is about 600$, which I can not afford to pay. I am married and have a contract position. Family income is about 5,000$ monthly. However given other bills and mortgage, actually nothing would left to go to OSAP.

I did talk to NSLC and I was advised that since you are getting paid above the cap you would not be qualified for "Repayment Assistant Program" and the affordable payment would be 580$!!!! only 20$ less than regular payment!!!!

It seems that personal reasonable costs would not be considered for the affordable payments. Would you please advise what should I do?

In addition, I have been overpaid during my study for about 3000$ and that is why OSOG was not applied in my case to reduce my annual debt to about 11,000$ any help in that regard too?

Thanks

Quick question here, is it true if you're above 23 and have recently started to go back to school, that OSAP doesn't need your parents income even though I'm still living with my parents?

I have not heard back from OSAP about the OSOG estimate. The osap website says it should be done in the fall.
Any update ?!!

hey! Its suppose to happen in Nov. I talked to my school (Carleton), and they said OSAP will send National Loan Center the grant amount. If you already paid off your loan, the loan center should send you a check

when you start paying OSAP back, do they take your money on the first of the month of the 30th?

Hey,
Actually my account on nslsc shows that the government did send the money and the amount has been decreased while my osap account doesn't show anything.

What is OSAP Funding GSL? My daughter applied for OSAP after 4 years of undergrad and she received 3 items: 2 from Canada GSL (one loan and one grant I supposed) and one addition item called OSAP funding GSL. She never had this before during undergrad years. Is it grant or loan?
