Important E-mail Clarification Notice
On behalf of the Student Awards Office staff, I would like to clarify an e-mail that was sent from our office on June 24, 2011, directed to students who may be studying as Post Degree, Qualifying Year, or Unclassified Studies.
This e-mail was based on a notification received by our office from the Ministry of Training for Colleges and Universities, stating that these groups of students would not be eligible for OSAP funding.
Contrary to the article issued in The Cord newspaper on June 29, 2011, this was not a change in policy by the Ministry of Training for Colleges and Universities, but rather a clarification of procedures by our office regarding student eligibility for OSAP so that the Student Awards Office would be in compliance with this Ministry policy.
My apologies if this information was not conveyed in a clear and concise manner in our initial e-mail.
