Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment and Electronic Funds Deposit for Students in Receipt of OSAP
You must complete your paperwork for OSAP assistance for 13/14:
Just prior to the start of classes, the Student Awards & Financial Aid Office will confirm enrolment electronically with the Ministry and then the OSAP funding will be sent electronically to either the University or to your bank account or both depending.
In order for the Student Awards & Financial Aid Office to confirm enrolment electronically, the following must occur:
If you have agreed to tuition fee redirection and there is sufficient OSAP funding to cover your tuition, your fees will be deferred automatically until January 30th to allow the electronic funds transfer to occur. How do I figure out if I have to make a payment by December 16th?
NOTE: If you have NOT agreed to tuition fee redirection, then you must ensure that your tuition is paid promptly once the OSAP funding is deposited into your bank account. Technically you have until January 30th to pay your fees from your OSAP deposit. However, whatever portion is not being covered by OSAP, is what must be paid by December 16th.
If you would like to change your mind so that your OSAP funding can be redirected to the University to pay your fees, the following form can be used to make the request to change this option on the application. This form must be received by our office by August 1st for Fall, December 1st for Winter, and April 1 for Summer.
WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN?
The Confirmation of Enrolment process can start as early as 10 days from your expected study period start date. So for a January 6th start date, the SAFA office will be able to start processing confirmation of enrolments on/after January 2nd provided that a student is fully registered. Once our office has confirmed enrolment, funding will be requested and it will take approximately 5-7 business days for the funds to transfer into your bank account/University.
WEB STATUS = SCHOOL MUST CONFIRM ENROLMENT?
If your OSAP web status states that the school must confirm enrolment and there are no other issues with your account, please do not call the SAFA office as our phone queue is extremely busy at this time. We will do our best to ensure that all eligible accounts are confirmed within the appropriate timelines as outlined above.
