Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

How to apply

Be sure to apply for OSAP and submit any required documentation before the posted deadlines.
  • Step 1: Apply online and gather any supporting documentation

    Create a profile on the OSAP website and follow the steps to apply.

    You may be required to submit additional documentation when applying for OSAP. Submit your documents to the Student Awards and Financial Aid office, keeping all deadlines in mind.

    • Online: When you make changes, it takes approximately 48 hours to update your application. Track the status of your application online, and learn how much money you'll get and when.
    • Paper: If you requested paper notifications from OSAP, it could take a few weeks to reach you—online is faster. To change your preference for OSAP notifications, log in and update your profile information by selecting Email and Correspondence Options on the left navigation bar.
  • Step 2: Submit the Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement
    Your Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA) must be completed online. The MSFAA only needs to be submitted once every 10 years—your OSAP application will state whether or not you need to submit it (in the required documentation section).
  • Step 3: Await enrolment confirmation and release of funds

    Ten days before the start of your study period, we will begin confirming completed OSAP files. Your OSAP application information must match the following information on your university record: 

    • program of study
    • year of study
    • course load percentage

    If the information on your OSAP application differs from your university record, contact the Student Awards and Financial Aid (SAFA) office in order to have it updated.

    If your information matches on both records, we can confirm your enrolment. You will receive your OSAP funding 7 to 10 working days after your file is confirmed.

    Your OSAP funding will be released by term. For example, if you are registered for both the fall and winter terms, your funding will be released in two installments: 60 per cent in the fall term and 40 per cent in the winter term.


If you have any questions about your OSAP funding or possible OSAP appeals, contact the SAFA office.
