30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant

On January 1, 2012 the Ontario government introduced the 30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant.  The amount of this grant is scheduled to increase annually.  For current information regarding this grant as well as application deadlines, please visit the 30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant section of the OSAP website.

Additional information to consider:

  • If you are in receipt of a tuition waiver from the University of Windsor (your parent is employed at the University and you receive a 100% tuition waiver), you are eligible to be considered for this grant.
  • If you have previously received loans (which are still owing) through the OSAP program and then apply for OTG only via the OTG only application, you must update your full-time student status with the National Student Loan Service Centre by submitting a request for Continuation of Interest-Free Status to our office at the start of the academic year.  As well, it must be submitted again at the beginning of May if you extend your study period into the Summer.
  • If you are a Concurrent Education or Collaborative Nursing student, you must apply to each school for this grant depending on where you are studying full-time.  For example, if you are a concurrent education student who is studying full-time at the University of Windsor for Fall and studying full-time at St. Clair College for Winter, you will need to apply for this grant for the fall semester at UWindsor and apply again for this grant at St. Clair for the winter term.  Your program is considered one-term for each school and you would therefore have to abide by the one-term deadlines.
  • If you are a co-op student, you are eligible to apply for this grant during your study term only.  Unless you have back-to-back study terms (Fall/Winter or Winter/Summer), you are considered in a one-term program if your study/work sequence is as follows: Fall/Study, Winter/Work, Summer/Study.  You must apply for this grant for the fall term and then once again for the summer term using separate applications and you must abide by the one-term deadlines for each study term.
  • You can receive this grant for a maximum of 2 terms within the academic year.  So you can receive the grant in the fall and winter term but if you return to full-time studies in summer, you will not be eligible.
