Financial Aid

If you would like to meet with a financial aid advisor about your OSAP/Out-of-Province student loan account, you must present your student ID and/or valid government-issued photo ID (such as a driver’s licence or permanent residency card).

If you need to retrieve your OAN, reset your loan account password, authorize the release of information to a third party or pick up part-time funding certificates, grants or bursary cheques, you must present your SIN card (or photocopy of your SIN card, or official Government of Canada document that indicates your SIN number, such as a notice of assessment from the Canada Revenue Agency) and a piece of government-issued photo ID.

OCAD University is committed to Ontario's Student Access Guarantee, which states, "No qualified Ontario student should be prevented from attending our publicly assisted colleges and universities because of a lack of financial support programs. The Student Access Guarantee means students in need will have access to the resources they need for their tuition, books and mandatory fees."

At OCAD U, education costs will be met by a variety of sources, including OSAP, bursaries, scholarships, awards and opportunities to work on campus. In addition to the online resource information, staff in the Financial Aid & Awards office can advise students with respect to their financial situation, provide referrals to the appropriate financial assistance programs, and assist them with securing the resources required to meet their post-secondary education costs.

Finance office

Staff in the Finance office can provide information on the required tuition and ancillary fees, methods of payment, payment deadlines, tuition fee refunds, as well as answer questions about the online fees account and tax certificates for students (T2202A or T4A forms).
