Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)

Full-time Academic Restriction

If there is a second instance of unsatisfactory academic progress, you may be restricted from receiving OSAP funding for a minimum of 12 months.​

During a restriction period, you are still responsible for maintaining your previous loans with the National Student Loan Student Centre. ​

If you are enrolled in full-time studies while restricted from OSAP funding, you can submit a Continuation of Interest-free Status (CIFS) application at the start of your study period.​ This will stop interest charges and prevent prior OSAP loans from going into repayment for the duration of your full-time study period while on restriction. If you are not studying full-time, you must continue to repay your loans as scheduled or apply for Repayment Assistance through your NSLSC account.​

After your restriction period, you may be eligible for funding for your next study period. For more information, please contact a Financial Aid Advisor at​
