FAQS

Yes, there are a variety of scholarships, bursaries and awards made available to students each year.  In course Scholarships are awarded to students automatically who have achieved academic excellence in their previous year of study in their program.

Other Awards are also available to students based on varying criteria such as personal excellence (or a combination of academic and personal); community involvement; or leadership. Often, these awards also take financial need into consideration.

Bursaries are awarded based on financial need. Occasionally, there may be other requirements for qualification.

Students must be in good academic standing to receive a bursary or other award.

*Scholarships, bursaries and awards do not need to be repaid, they do need to be declared on your OSAP application, unless you have been notified otherwise

During first semester of your program

  • You must apply for the program of your choice through ontariocolleges.ca.
  • You can simply amend your application at OntarioColleges, to your new program choice.  The process will begin again and you will receive an offer if there are still seats available and you are qualified.

 Changing programs within the same school (after semester one)

  • To change programs within the school/division, arrangements can be made in the Student Services building. You may need to make an appointment with your student advisor if you have completed more than one year of the program in order to assess credits and timetable needs.
  • Advanced Standing applications can also be made in the Student Recruitment and Admission Services office if you want previous credits considered for entry into year 2 or 3 of another program.

Your OSAP funding will be electronically disbursed to your bank account in two instalments
