OSAP application processing times

Depending on the time of the year, the processing of your application may take six to eight weeks. Check the status of your file by logging into the government OSAP website.

The first instalment of fall/winter OSAP funding should be available in early September if you completed your OSAP application and submitted all the required supporting documentation by the preceding June 30.

Because so many York students apply for OSAP during the peak summer months, if you do not submit the application, information and documentation by June 30 then you will receive your first OSAP instalment in October (at the earliest).
