Fee Payment Methods from Student Loans

OSAP/Government Student Loans

Summer 2018 OSAP funding for Full-Time Students (60% or more of a full course load; 40% if you are a student with a permanent disability)

  • Summer 2018 OSAP funding for FULL TIME students will be electronically transferred to your bank account provided the OSAP application is complete. 
  • Visit your OSAP account online to review your funding entitlement.
  • Tuition owing to Western will be taken from your funding only if you have agreed to this on your OSAP application. Otherwise, you will be responsible for paying your fees.
  • If you have agreed that tuition owing to Western will be taken from your funding and your funding is not enough to cover your tuition, you must pay the difference by the due date on your Statement of Account. 
  • If your OSAP funding has not been confirmed, you must pay your fees by the due date. 
  • If you are unable to pay your fees by the fee payment due date, go to Student Central, Room 1120, Western Student Services Building or e-mail contact@uwo.ca to discuss deferment arrangements.  Fee deferments are not granted for full fees.  Special deferments are available to students on the basis of proven financial need.
  • Western must confirm that you are enrolled in the courses you have indicated in your Summer Application before the Ministry can release your funding.  

Summer 2018 OSAP Funding for Part-Time Students (20 to 59% of a full course load; 20 to 39% for students with permanent disability)

Part-time OSAP applications must be received by Student Financial Aid at least 4 weeks prior to the start of the session and will be available for pick up in Student Central, Room 1120, Western Student Services Building at the start of the first session in which you are registered. Please check your UWO email for pick up instructions.

Your tuition fees will be deducted from your loan/grant funding. If your funding is not enough to cover your full tuition, the outstanding balance MUST be paid by the due date on your statement of account to avoid a late payment penalty.

You must pick up your OSAP for Part-Time Loan at the start of the session and take your loan document to a designated Canada Post Outlet right away to complete payment of your fees.  A list of locations is available here, or find one closest to you.  Loans must be picked up promptly to avoid a late payment penalty.
