The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is based on financial need as determined through an assessment of your application. Educational costs and the resources OSAP expects you (and your family, if applicable) to contribute are taken into consideration.
Keep in mind it is not the purpose of OSAP to supply all the assistance you may need to meet your educational and living costs. OSAP is there to supplement, not replace, the financial resources that you (and your family, if applicable) are expected to contribute.
You may apply directly on-line at osap.gov.on.ca. The sooner you apply, the sooner you will receive a response from the Ministry to help you plan.
Am I Eligible?
To apply for any OSAP assistance, you have to be a fee-paying student attending Centennial full or part-time in an approved program of study and be considered a resident of Ontario. In addition, each plan has its own particular requirements and qualifications. When you visit the Student Financial Aid office, we'll match you with the plans that meet your needs.
You should apply early for financial aid (before June 1) to be sure funds are available when you start classes.
