A1 Global College - Financial Aid Program


The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a financial aid program only for Ontario residents, who are Permanent residents, Citizens and protected persons. OSAP can help you pay for college or university. OSAP offers funding through grants (money that you don’t have to pay back) and a student loan (money you need to repay once you’re done schooling).  When you apply for OSAP, you are considered for both grant and a loan. If you don’t wish to take a loan, and you’re a full-time or part-time student, you can decline it after your application is approved.
