13 How can I pay? You may pay by cash, certified cheque, debit card (ensure you have a high enough daily limit to cover your payment), money order (payable to Nipissing University) or online* or in person* at any of the five main banks. We do NOT accept credit card payments! Paying after hours? Use our after hours drop box next to the Student Financial Services Office (F216) exit door – cheques or money orders only! Paying your fees with OSAP? Make sure an application is submitted by July 15 and that ALL required documentation has been mailed in (you can check your status online by logging back into the OSAP website). Also ensure that you have processed your MSFAA with a designated postal outlet during the summer. If your file is complete as of the fee deadline date, the first fee installment will be deducted. We assume you wish to pay by installments! * NOTE ABOUT ONLINE & BANK PAYMENTS: It can take several business days for online and bank payments to be posted to the student’s account. Keep this in mind if you need to meet a deadline! Keep a copy of the receipt (or print the online payment proof) and provide it to the student, in case it’s needed. Note that it is still possible to apply for OSAP after July 15; it is just less likely that your funding will be available in time for the first day of classes. To apply, visit osap.gov.on.ca.

18 Print your MSLA and take it to a designated postal outlet for processing early in the summer Print both sets of signature pages and send them to the Financial Aid office of the school to which you’ve applied for OSAP. The option to print the signature pages won’t come up until you SUBMIT your application The option to print all of the required supporting documentation won’t come up until you SUBMIT your application

19 When the file is complete and an assessment has run, a new option – funding summary- will appear in the left hand list This message tells you the file is complete; check the funding summary regularly for details on how much will be issued and when. The school will automatically confirm enrolment just before school starts and each time additional funding is ready to be issued. Jane Doe
