Student Loans

What student loans are available?

Many students rely on government-funded student loans to cover the costs of post-secondary education. If you are a resident of Ontario, you might be eligible for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).

By submitting a single OSAP application, you will be considered for federal and provincial loans and grants. Check out the OSAP website to learn more about the program and eligibility criteria.

Funding is available for both Full-Time and Part-Time students. If you are taking 1.5 credits or more per term, you will complete the Full-Time OSAP application. If you are taking between 0.5 and 1.25 credits, you can complete the Part-Time OSAP application. If you are a student with a permanent disability, you can be considered a full time student while taking 1.0 credits per term.

Check out our OSAP Guides on the menu to the left to get started!

Want to know how much OSAP you qualify for? Complete the anonymous OSAP Aid Estimator for an estimate.
