The 2020-2021 post-secondary application season will be slightly different than prior years due to varied pandemic responses.  The Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC) and Ontario College Application Service (OCAS) are direct sources that provide information and application assistance.

Financial Incentives & Assistance

Many schools provide entrance scholarships or bursaries based on academic credentials (often automatic) along with secondary financial incentives that require an application.  It is up to you to research what is available based on your qualifications.  Check out the Beyond OSAP page for information about these incentives.

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a financial aid program designed to help students pay for college or university.  Money is provided through grants and loans, both of which are automatically considered when you apply.  Visit the OSAP website for more information.
