The University of Windsor will report all university scholarships/awards that are paid or scheduled to be paid to students through their student account.  Students do not need to report these throughout the year. 

If you have reported scholarships administered by the University of Windsor, you should receive a communication from award1@uwindsor.ca, with directions on how to update the information on your OSAP application.

Students must report any external awards that they are receiving and that are paid directly to them.

It is our plan to start confirming enrolment, for OSAP purposed, one week prior to the beginning of classes.  If there are any external awards to be reported, we would like these updates completed prior to the Confirmation of Enrollment process if possible.

If you have received an email to advise you of the possible double counting of scholarships/bursaries/awards/tuition waivers, the following information will assist you with understanding the information in the chart:

Amount reported by you: This is the amount of scholarships/bursaries/awards/tuition waivers that you reported on your OSAP application when you applied.
Amount reported by us: This is the amount of scholarships/bursaries/awards/tuition waivers that we have reported to OSAP on your behalf based on funds that have been or will be paid through your student account.
Study Period Start Date: This is the start date of your study period that has been used to calculate your weeks of eligibility.  If this date is incorrect, i.e. it says September but you plan on starting in April, then you need to complete an OSAP Course Load Update Form to let us know.
Study Period End Date: This is the end date of your study period that has been used to calculate your weeks of eligibility.  If this date is incorrect, i.e. it says April but you plan on ending in December because Winter is your work term and you do not plan on applying for OSAP for your work term, or if you will be graduating at the end December, then you need to complete an OSAP Course Load Update Form to let us know.
Confirmation of Enrolment: This is the process where we confirm your full-time enrolment with the government.  We plan to start this process at the end of August.
