Osap advice internship/coop

Hey guys,

I'm a student at ryerson taking civil engineering.

I finished my 3rd year and I have been working for a year. Now with 2 months left till school I have applyied for osap again because of the grants available and the loan.

However, since I'm 4 years out of high school I'm ineligible for the 30% off tuition. On the osap website ot says you're eligible if you're within 5 years on a coop program.

I called financial aid yesterday and they said on their side I'm only enrolled for a 4 year program, thats why the application isn't going through. The laxy Saud she'll look into it and contact me through my email, but I received nothing today. I also sent them an email of the issue on Sunday night, and I haven't received a reply yet.

My friend at York told me. To. Get in contact with the presidents office, I'd lile to give them toll around Wednesday to figure out.

If they don't I think the presidents office is where I shouls go.

Anyways, I'm curious if anyone has any experience with an internship and coop with osap or just any advice or so.

Same thing happened to me and my financial aid department changed it right away and I got the grant almost within a week. But i went to uOttawa.
