Have two pieces of valid identification:
A Social Insurance Number (SIN) card or government document confirming your SIN
A government-issued photo ID
The Canada Post outlet will send your lifetime student loan agreement to the National Student Loans Service Centre on your behalf. *Free Of Charge*
Note: Once your MSFAA is submitted, it’s good for the duration of your full-time studies. You won’t have to submit it again if you apply for OSAP next year.
OSAP funds are usually disbursed in two installments approximately 1 week after a student commences their studies. For a three-term study period, 60% of the funding will be disbursed in the Fall and the remainder in the Winter term. Students will only receive funding once the student starts attending and meets the requirements for their enrollment confirmation. This is to ensure that students are attending classes, actively participating and excelling in their program. (Two critical components in maintaining OSAP eligibility: Grades (Minimum 60% GPA) and satisfactory attendance.
