Financing Your Education        


The objective of the Ontario Student Assistance Program is to help students from lower income families to meet the costs of post secondary education. OSAP is intended to promote equality of opportunity for post-secondary studies by providing direct financial assistance for educational costs (such as tuition fees, books, and supplies) and basic living expenses.  Other OSAP programs offer assistance to students with specific needs; for example, Assistance for Students with Disabilities.


The team will be back at the end of May to help graduating students get started on their OSAP applications! They will be bringing all of the computers with them but to get started, students will NEED TO BRING THEIR SIN #s. - See Mrs. Goldring for details.
