For more information, please visit the Ontario Ministry of Education’s Micro-credentials from Ontario’s postsecondary schools information page. Please note the following exceptions that may affect OSAP funding eligibility for our certificates:

  • Students receiving Second Career funding for a micro-credential during their study period are ineligible.
  • Although grants will not be converted to loans, a grant may become repayable if a student withdraws, is determined to be overpaid in grant funding, or income cannot be verified within one year.
  • A student cannot receive OSAP for micro-credential assistance for their study period if it overlaps with another micro-credential study period in which they are concurrently receiving OSAP for micro-credential funding. However, students may overlap their micro-credential study period with a study period that is part of a different full- or part-time program that they are concurrently receiving funding for through Full-Time OSAP or Part-Time OSAP, provided that OSAP funding was not assessed for the micro-credential course(s) through a Full-Time or Part-Time OSAP application.
