Financial Aid And OSAP

Fall/Winter OSAP

The 2024-25 OSAP application is now available online, click here. Students who intend on using OSAP funds to pay their fees for this upcoming September must complete the online application by June 30th and have all supporting documentation submitted by July 15th. Students can still apply after this date, however processing times can range from 4-6 weeks.

Hints when applying under the full-time program:

  • You will be asked for your OAN (Ontario Access Number) and Password when logging in
  • If you have forgotten either of these, please click here for assistance.
  • If you are still unable to retrieve your OAN and/or password, please come into Financial Aid office at Huron (or any post-secondary institution that administers OSAP) with your SIN card and valid government-issued photo ID.  We can retrieve your OAN and/or issue a temporary password.
  • Select Western University Canada as your institution and then select a Huron program from the existing list.

Summer OSAP

All Huron students requesting Full-Time OSAP for the Summer Session (May to August) must complete a “Huron-Full Time Undergraduate Summer Supplemental OSAP Application.” Completed applications, and any required supporting documentation, are to be submitted via email to Dusan Stepancev, Coordinator, Student Aid & Awards, Huron University College, at

Please refer to the Eligibility Chart on the Application to determine whether you should be requesting Full-Time OSAP or Part-Time OSAP for the Summer Session. For example: students enrolling in one distance studies half course, one distance studies full course or one evening half course ONLY must complete the online OSAP application for Part Time Students. Students with a Permanent Disability enrolling in one full distance studies course have the option to apply to Part Time or Full Time OSAP.


The deadline to apply and submit all supporting documentation for both full-time and part-time OSAP for the Summer Session is 6 weeks (42 days) prior to the end of your study period. Please note: if you are only taking a 3 week intersession course; the deadline to apply and submit all supporting documentation would be 3 weeks prior to the course start date. Students wishing to automatically defer their tuition payment to OSAP need to have their application and all supporting documents submitted by April 1st, 2024.

How to Apply 

If you did not receive Full-Time OSAP funding during the Fall/Winter 2023-2024 academic year, you must be enrolled for a minimum of 12 weeks during the Summer Session. You must also complete a 2023-2024 online Full-Time OSAP Application in addition to completing the Summer Supplemental Paper Form.  Check back early Spring for a link to apply.

Non-refundable Grants

Bursaries are non-repayable grants offered by the university that are awarded on the basis of financial need.  Bursaries supplement a student’s primary source of funding such as OSAP, bank loan/line of credit and parental/spousal contributions.  Financial need is determined in a manner similar to the Canada and Ontario Student Loans assessment.  It involves assessing the costs of the program that students are registered in, as well as any available resources (RESP’s, part-time employment, etc.).

In order to be eligible for bursary assistance, students must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents, be registered at Huron in a full or part-time program and demonstrate genuine financial need.

Bursaries can be applied for at any time as the need arises until funds are exhausted.  There is no deadline.
