Using OSAP Funds

You must have an OSAP assessment calculated within 3 business days of the fee deadline date for the term (August 15 for the Fall semester; December 15 for the Winter semester and May 15 for the Intersession/Summer semester).

Your pending OSAP funding will be applied to your student account as "Anticipated Aid" and will reduce your balance owing to the University by the amount that is scheduled to be released for the term. Your student account information (once tuition has been calculated for the term) can be viewed by logging in to UWinsite Student > Financial Account.

If you have sufficient OSAP funding to cover your balance owing, then you do not have to make a further payment by the fee deadline date.

If you do not have sufficient OSAP funding to cover your balance owing, then you will need to ensure that the remaining balance (fees less anticipated OSAP aid) is paid by the fee deadline date so that you do not incur interest charges. After the fee deadline date, interest will accrue on any outstanding tuition balance. Interest will be calculated accordingly on accounts where OSAP funding is applied as anticipated aid, after the fee deadline date.

OSAP funding greater than your balance owing will be directed to the bank account that you set up with the National Student Loan Service Centre when you signed your Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA). To request a change to your bank account information on file with the NSLSC, visit the NSLSC website.

Graduate Students Payroll Deferment Plan

A graduate student is required to submit a Payroll Deferment form to the Student Accounts Office prior to the due-date of each semester: September 17 for the Fall semester, January 11 for the Winter semester, and June 10 for the Intersession/Summer semester.

If 90% of the student's GA, TA, RA and or Sessional, is enough to cover all of the tuition fees, then the interest is waived.  If it is not enough, then the amount left owing must be paid by the financial due-date of the semester, August 15, December 15 and May 15. If payment is not made, interest is charged on that outstanding balance, until the difference is paid in full. 

Effective Fall 2020, we will be deducting 100% of all funds being disbursed through Payroll until the outstanding Student Accounts balance is paid in full. Following that any remaining payments will be issued to the student.

Do not put cash in the drop box or in the mail. If you mail your payment, it may take 10 days for your payment to arrive and be processed. Mail payments are credited to your account the date received in the Student Accounts Office.
