OSAP Appeals

OSAP Applicant has Dependent(s) in Postsecondary Studies

 If an OSAP applicant (married student or sole support parent) has a dependant child in postsecondary studies who has also applied for OSAP funding, the income of the OSAP applicant and his or her spouse (if any) is considered in the calculation of an expected family contribution. The same income also is considered in the dependent child’s OSAP assessment, as an expected parental contribution.

This review allows the amount of the expected parental contribution in the child(ren)’s OSAP assessment to be considered an exceptional expense in the parent’s OSAP assessment. The review is intended for situations where an OSAP applicant (married student or sole support parent) has one or more dependent children who have also applied for OSAP and 

  • The assessment for the married student or sole support parent shows an expected family contribution; and
  • The assessment for the dependent child(ren) shows an expected parental contribution.

Note: If the dependent children are in full-time studies and have not applied for OSAP, there is no expected parental contribution, so no review is necessary.

Documentation Required:

  • Each dependent child who is also an OSAP applicant must provide his or her SIN and provide permission for their parent’s FAO to view their OSAP assessment to determine the expected parental contribution amount.
