I plan to be attending Carleton University in the fall studying Commerce. My best friend already attends University of Ottawa so we'll be rooming together. I will be applying for OSAP to hep cover living costs and tuition.

I understand that OSAP is to AID your finances and not throw money at you which is why I currently have a part-time job and will continue to work one during the course of my study. But in the worst case scenario where I don't have money saved for rent, will OSAP's funding arrive in time to pay for the rent of September?

Thanks for your help!

at university, it is possible to have your first OSAP disbursement approved 10 days before the start date of your classes, however it is more normal that it is approved once you start (especially if you are first year). don't plan on having your money before Sept 1
