Step 4. Submit your MSFAA

When you complete and submit your online OSAP application, the summary will tell you if you need to print your Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA). The MSFAA outlines the terms, conditions, and responsibilities that you are assuming as a student loan borrower. This loan agreement is an important document so make sure you keep a copy of it for future reference. It remains valid during your entire continuing full-time post-secondary studies, unless there is a break of two years or more in your studies.

Complete and sign the MSFAA, then take it to any participating Canada Post outlet in your area. Your funding cannot be released until you have done so.

Do not send your MSFAA to York University!

When the completed MSFAA is received by the National Student Loan Service Centre (NSLSC), they will electronically notify the government.
