Max OSAP

A photo of SpringChild SpringChild
So Max osap for an independent student is 11900 supposedly but every damned time i do the aid estimator thing I get $12 922 as my total estimated osap funding.

That bothers me because it makes me wonder about the reliability of OSAP aid estimator and thus i can't be certain how much funding I have for next year!!! My parents wont be contributing at all :)

If I am not mistake the max is actually $13900, I recently did the real application and the estimate on it for me was $13900.

How is your estimate THAT high? It's somewhat reliable. It's more of a ballpark amount that is usually on the lower side in my experience (because it doesn't account for grants and some other stuff). Are you sure about the max amount? Someone was telling me it was $13,000...this is, of course, based on hearsay, so I'm actually not sure.

Well my parent's income was very low last year because my dad was actually in school redoing his masters. so maybe that adds to it.

Why would they give me an estimate that is above what they would loan out? Here is a screen clip of my estimate on osap.gov.on.ca after I submitted my form. Deny me now?

Hey Springy - the link you sent was for 2010-2011 --- maybe OSAP up the max this year.

Life is good.

It's just an estimate. You won't really know how much OSAP you're getting until September or October.

No, no. I believe he is right. I got something like $14,000 each of the last two years from OSAP.
