Financial Aid

The various provincial student aid programs, specifically OSAP, are working to ensure that financial aid recipients are not negatively impacted due to events related to COVID-19.   A COVID-19 related event is defined as being ill, self-isolating, quarantined, caring for an immediate family member or suffering from mental health issues related to COVID-19.

 

If a student withdraws from all courses, we ask that the student submit a letter of explanation via email to award1@uwindsor.ca outlining the rationale for the withdrawal.  Please include your full name and student ID number in your email.  The financial aid file will be adjusted according to the current financial aid rules in effect however, if the adjustment results in grants being converted to loans (for OSAP recipients), this may be prevented if the student submits a letter outlining the reason for the withdrawal to the Financial aid office.

 

Students will not be financially penalized if they elect to complete their courses with either a pass, no pass or combination of the gradings however, students who fail to successfully complete at least 60% of their course load (40% for students with a permanent disability) will be placed on a financial aid academic progress warning or restriction.  If a student fails to complete 60% of their course load (40% for students with a permanent disability) due to COVID-19 related reasons, the student must send an email to award1@uwindsor.ca outlining the reason for failing to complete the required course load and the warning or restriction may be waived.
