July 2017’s OCAD U Insider e-newsletter contained information about the structure and delivery changes to the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). These changes are aimed at increasing access to post-secondary education for students from low- and middle-income families, by making average tuition for the majority of eligible students (whose parents make a combined household income of less than $50,000 per year), free.

The Financial Aid and Awards office is excited to share that students can now see the results of bursaries by logging into MyOCADU.ca and select the AwardSpring or the Self Service icon (be sure to review both Fall and Winter terms individually). Please note, if you do not see any results, this means you were not approved for bursary assistance. You may appeal this decision by seeing a Financial Aid Advisor to discuss your application in greater detail.
