Ontario Student Assistance Program

We encourage all students with financial need to consider applying for Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). 

OSAP provides financial aid through two kinds of support:

  • grants: money you don’t have to pay back
  • loans: money you need to repay once you’re done school

When you apply for OSAP, you are automatically considered for both grants and loans. If you don’t want to take a loan, you can decline it after your application is approved.

The University of Guelph uses OSAP to determine financial need for all bursaries and Work Study.
