Important Note about OSAP

Students who wish to apply for OSAP funding while part of the Global Transitions Program must register in an additional 0.5 credit course (online or independent learning project) to receive government support. OSAP requires that students are registered in at least 1.5 credits each semester and as the GT program's academic portion (INTC 2F05) satisfies 1.0 credit, an additional 0.5 course is needed to meet the minimum requirement.
