She's not a mature student because she will hopefully be attending post-secondary right after high school next year.

As johnb56789 said parental income is a determinant for OSAP for non-mature students. If she will be in residence/living away from home, she will be entitled to more money. If she will only be a little short and does not want to take or need the loan portion from OSAP, she can apply giving all the required information and then take only the grants. That might give her the little extra she needs.

My parents pulled out 22k. And I handed in my paper recently to update my account for osap. Are there anything I should expect from osap. They've funded me for the fall term and winter term is starting in a week for Sheridan College. FinAid office said Osap will most likely pull out of Fundings since 15k is like a limitation

Hello,

I'm going to apply for request of living allowance on my OSAP application. It asks for a rental agreement as proof. So I was wondering, if I should write in the rental agreement that I started to rent since Jan 1 or Feb 1. because I'm concerned if I write Jan 1, then OSAP will not give me money since they think I already have $1400 (2month rent 700+700) to give to the landlord.

Or should this not be a problem?

Because I really want to make sure OSAP would consider my request for rent allowance. I don't wanna mess up. I really need to get approved for rent allowance..

Or, would it be better to write the rent from February 1, because it makes sense, since I haven't lived on the rent yet, so OSAP could send me money..

Could anyone please help me regarding this, if you have any idea about this..

If you have any further question, please feel free to ask me.

Thank you very much.
