Province Expanding 30% Off Ontario Tuition Program

About 5,000 More Students Eligible for Support

Monday, January 20, 2014

Ontario is helping about 5,000 more students with the cost of postsecondary education by expanding eligibility for the 30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant.

Students in their final year of a five-year co-op program and students attending private career colleges and other private postsecondary institutions that are eligible for financial aid through the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) will now be eligible for the 30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant. Students who apply for aid through OSAP will automatically be considered for the grant without a separate application, including those who have already applied this year.

Helping students with the costs of postsecondary education is part of the Ontario government's economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.
