What’s New!

Part-time OSAP: Funding certificates for OSAP for Part-Time Students will be available at the SFAS office (Gilmour Hall, 120) this week. Watch for a notification in your Mosaic to-do list. Starting this fall, part-time OSAP funding will automatically be redirected to McMaster to pay tuition and fees. Learn more about part-time OSAP

OSAP confirmations of enrolment: The OSAP confirmation of enrolment process is ongoing. OSAP funding will be released within 5-7 business days of your confirmation of enrolment. Watch your McMaster email and OSAP Message Centre for notifications. See when you’ve received your funding in your Mosaic Student Center.

Important OSAP change: Starting this fall, all OSAP funding will automatically be sent to McMaster to pay tuition and student fees. Funding left over after covering tuition/fees will be deposited into students’ bank accounts. Learn more on how to track your funding.
