Changes to OSAP for the 2018-2019 Academic Year

Expected Parental Contribution:

The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has introduced changes to the calculation of the expected parental contribution in the provincial OSAP assessment.

The impact of these changes will mean dependent students (students not yet 4-years out of high school) may now qualify for OSAP funding because of a reduced expected parental contribution.

We encourage all Ontario students to submit a 2018-2019 OSAP application for consideration.

Mandatory Remit of OSAP funding to Post-secondary Institution:

Beginning 2018-19, the Government of Ontario is requiring each time your enrolment is confirmed, all or a portion of your OSAP funding will be redirected to Queen’s to be applied to your tuition and education-related fees. The amount of your OSAP to be remitted to Queen’s will not exceed the value of your term tuition, Student Assistance Levy, and fees charged (excluding residence charges), unless you have a balance outstanding from a previous academic term.  Any remaining OSAP will be deposited to your personal bank account.  Log on to your OSAP account at and view your Funding Summary for details of what is being redirected to Queen’s or you can review your Student Fee Account – Net Cost View.

Reporting Queen's Awards to OSAP

Beginning 2018-2019, undergraduate students do NOT report any scholarships, bursaries, or awards received from Queen's University.  Queen's University will be reporting all undergraduate scholarships/awards/bursaries to OSAP via another reporting mechanism.
