I have not heard back from OSAP about the OSOG estimate. The osap website says it should be done in the fall.
Any update ?!!
when you start paying OSAP back, do they take your money on the first of the month of the 30th?

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

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?

what amount triggers an overpayment? if you underestimated your income in the summer by 300$ does this result in an overpayment?

A friend applied for osap 30% off tuition but got rejected since she was taking only 1 class for the fall semester. Can she re-apply in the winter semester since she has a full course load?

How does RAP work, do you have to report to them when you've found a job, or do you stay on RAP until the 6 months end and then the payments automatically start?

And does interest accumulate while you're on the RAP?

Question.

So it seems free tuition is starting for next year. My question is, for those of us who are Ontario residents, but will be studying at a public institution out of province..would we be screwed?

Did she apply for OSAP for both semesters when she got rejected for the 30% off tuition? If not, I believe you can. Just put that you have a full course load and you are applying for the winter semester

What does loan forgiveness mean? My daughter just got a revised notice from OSAP and it gave her additional $2K but it's forgiveness. Does it mean the $2K will not count toward her loan total?
