Students needing to update Scholarship/Bursary/Award amounts on their OSAP application will need to come into the Student Financial Services at King's with their SIN card and valid Government Issued Photo I.D. as this category cannot be updated online. For those students who have received a King's Entrance or Continuing Scholarship and the $500 Enhancement, it is your responsibility to report the Scholarship portion only.  King's will report the $500 Enhancement to the Ministry on your behalf. You will need to complete an "OSAP On-Line Change Form" to update this section. This form is available from Student Financial Services or the King's website under the OSAP section on "Money Matters".
