and usually when will be the time they say how much you are borrow?
You will get an OSAP estimate of how much will be given to you. Won't be confirmed until school confirms you're enrolled I believe at which point you will get money late Sept or early Oct (alternatively check with your fin aid office for specific timeline). You should be able to defer payment d/t OSAP, but deposits do not count for deferral.

I am a Canadian resident and I've been in Ontario since I've moved here when I was 8.

But I just submitted my application, and it said "Based on your answers, you're not an ontario resident." The residency questions are so confusing Dizzy Face

Should I delete it and resubmit it? Or should I provide documentation to prove that I am?

I always applied early but I believe the timelines might have changed recently, so I guess applying a bit later is okay. personally I wanted to make sure I had my funding in early to mid Sept so I applied as early as I could. If the funding isn't as urgent, you have until even the end of the year to apply (4 weeks after the last day of classes I believe it was)

Thanks. I believe applying early is a good habit and having advice such as yours is fortunate.

Hey guys, a couple questions...
I have received OSAP in the past (2012), will I still have a credit check run on me ?
By this time, would I already have been notified if I have failed the credit check ?
The checklist on my account shows everything as "Done" except for "Application Form". I have been assuming this means that I have already passed everything and am just waiting for the exact amount !
Can somebody please shed some light and possibly help me out lol ?
Call OSAP. Also why is application form not complete? How can you get funding if your forms aren’t done? I don’t believe there’s a credit check but if you received funding previously things might be different for mature students. I doubt you’ve been approved if your forms aren’t in. They don’t process anything until signature pages are in, and even if they gave you an estimate it’s pending final approval when your forms are in.

How accurate is the new OSAP Calculator?

As a "mature student" it seems to give you a base amount of $6.3k grants for a business/engineering program that's $10k tuition even if you put in $25k/yr income and $500k assets. That can't possibly be accurate, can it?
