Timetable or OSAP Concerns?
We are currently experiencing a very high volume of emails. We will respond to your emails as soon as possible and request that you do not send multiple emails, or emails to various departments about the same concern, as this slows down our processing time.

If you have OSAP concerns, please visit the Student Financial Services website where the OSAP application process is outlined in more detail. Also, please check your account on the OSAP portal and ensure you have satisfied all OSAP requirements.
