OSAP Information

Full time graduate students with Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) loans may apply for a continuation of interest-free status through your OSAP or NSLSC portal accounts.

This form does not apply for students who are taking out OSAP loans for the current year or those who study part time. You must wait until the current school year to begin before this form's submission.

Students are advised to contact Peter Bennett, RMC's OSAP Coordinator for more information, and for the completion of section 3 of this form: Peter Bennett,  x 3848.

Although those enrolled in the thesis or comprehensive courses may be paying "part time fees" you may still be considered a full time student for tax/osap purposes.


A list of scholarships available to RMC graduate students is located in "Scholarships, Bursaries, Prizes and Awards | Graduate Studies."

Individual Departments may offer additional scholarships. Please contact representatives for more information.

Maximum limits on NSERC stipend pay
