OSAP Income Update
It's time to update your OSAP application with the amount of income that you actually earned and estimate how much you'll earn while in school. Log into the OSAP website under "Check Status", go to your 15-16 OSAP application and select "Update Income".It is imperative that you review and update your incomes with OSAP, regardless of whether there is a change to be made. All OSAP students who have received OSAP funding this term should be completing this electronic income update. Students who completed an application for the 30% Ontario Tuition Grant only do not complete this income update. Students with changes to the award or scholarship section must complete an "OSAP Change Form" to update this information. This form is submitted to Student Financial Services at King's.
