I was thinking fax maybe. I could drop it off at UW (15 mins away), but faxing would be easier. For others it wouldn't be so easy to drop it off.

If you find out, let me know. If I find out, I will post here.

I'm pretty sure they specifically mention that faxing is not acceptable. I was thinking using a service like UPS...but it would've been so much more convenient (not to mention cheaper) to just use Canada post! Arrgh stupid strike :(

The lesson here is to not let unions interfere with services we use and need everyday. Unfortunately you'll have to courier it in with FedEx or Purolator or UPS.

They said something like "they don't want to inconvenience anyone too much" - what do you call locks on the mailboxes?

On Osap's website it says you cannot fax. But uhm I was wondering where do we have to send the documents. I know we have to send it to the universities financial offices, but other then that anywhere else? or are we done after that.

It goes to your school's financial aid office, just as you suspected.

I believe reading it somewhere that you can send it to your NEAREST financial aid office, not yours specifically.

Uh, no. Your school's financial aid office handles your loan.
