2019-2020 Award Payments

We anticipate having all 2019-2020 award allocations posted to the student account for all eligible students by Wednesday, August 14th including adjustments for entering students with entrance scholarships who have had an increase in their overall grade 12 U/M average qualifying them to receive a higher level scholarship.  Award allocations will not be paid to the student account officially until after the fall add/drop period however, it will appear on your student account as 'anticipated aid' for the fall term.

2019-2020 OSAP Funding

We anticipate having all fall OSAP disbursements received by the Ministry by August 23rd posted to the student account for all eligible students by Tuesday, August 27th and updating daily thereafter.  Fall term OSAP funding will appear on your student account as 'anticipate aid'.  If your OSAP anticipated aid is sufficient to cover your fees, you do not have to make a payment by August 15th.  If your OSAP anticipated aid will only cover a portion of your fees, you must pay the remaining balance (after OSAP funding is deducted) by August 15th to avoid interest charges.  We are currently experiencing some issues with this process and are working towards resolving them.  Should we not be able to post the OSAP amounts as anticipated aid, you can manually calculated the difference by accessing your fall OSAP disbursement on the OSAP website and deducting it from your current balance owing.  Please note that if you are receiving entrance or renewable scholarship, we are in the process of reporting those allocations to OSAP. Therefore, you may see a reduction in your OSAP allocation once your scholarships are applied.

All other applicants (International and Out of Province students)  will be assigned the UWinAward Consideration Request by February 2019.

Important Note - Issue Identified - It has come to our attention that students who do not yet have an offer of admission or who have an offer of admission but who have not yet accepted their offer of admission, do not currently have access to the 'Tasks' tile in order to complete their UWinAward Entering Student Profile.  We are working on the issue and updates will be posted here.  Thank you for your continued patience.

December 14, 2018 - OSAP displaying on your student account as anticipated aid. On December 10, available OSAP data was applied to your student account as anticipated aid so that you could see how much OSAP funding was pending.  If you have sufficient anticipated aid to cover your Winter term tuition and fees, then you do not have to make a payment.  When we confirm your enrolment in early January, your OSAP funding will cover your balance outstanding.  Please note that the OSAP information that was applied to your student account was current as on December 7.  Changes made to your OSAP assessment after this date are not yet reflected.  It will be updated within the next few days.

December 14, 2018 - It has been brought to our attention that the most recent early admission offers that were sent with financial aid information had a missing link specific to the on-line application process for scholarships and bursaries - UWinAward.  The correct link should have been UWinAward.  The scholarship and bursary application process for prospective students will be available in early February. Please check back here for further updates.
