Does OSAP look at your GPA?

A photo of IreneMa IreneMa
I just got my new estimate for the 2011-2012 school year and the amount I got in grants was ridiculously high (so much that it pretty much covers 90% of my tuition). I will be starting my second year this fall.

I just want to know, does OSAP take into consideration of your GPA when giving out grants? I know you can be put on OSAP probation if your GPA is too low, but does it go the other way as well?

Thanks :albino:

90% of just your tuition?
I really don't think they give you more money because you have a higher GPA, and I've heard that it covers up to 60% of your total fees:including living expenses, books, etc.(not sure about that), so you'll still have to come up with the money for your 10% of tuition and other expenses.

No, they don't look at your GPA.

My estimate was really high too..$11,500 for engineering at Waterloo, that'll cover all of my tuition plus a bit more.
