    Pre-MD OSAP?

    Advertisements



    Hi guys,

    Sorry if this seems like an obvious question, I'm still in the process of doing my research. Anyhow, here it goes: Do you know if Ontario students can get OSAP to fund their Pre-MD program?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure OSAP gives out funding to pre-MD programs (ex health science degrees) as long as it is an approved school in their registry. Search the school on OSAP's website.
    And even if he for ever flies within the gorge, that gorge is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar.

    Hey,

    I just spoke to the Financial Aid office at MUA and asked about the loans. She was very nice and had said that it is apporved for both the Pre-med and MD program. The reception was bad, so hopefully she understood me when I asked for the Pre-med program as well.
    You will have to apply online and send them the letter.

    Hey, when you say you will have to apply online and send them a letter, did you mean we have to apply on the osap.on.gov website and send the letter to MUA?

    Hey, i havent applied yet but looking at other forums on this we are suppose to apply on the osap website. And than there will be a sheet that you would have to get your school to fill out (in this case..you would have to send it out to MUA and they will directly send it to OSAP after filling it out). The sheet I'm assuming will be those print outs from osap that you would have to print out, sign and send.

    If anyone has tried it, let me know what the process is
    The financial aid officer said Pre-med was covered but when I'm still confused as to if its only for the MD program or pre-med too...

    I was just speaking with a couple of friends who are in med school in other caribbean schools. They were saying that in order to be considered for OSAP, you have to be enrolled in a degree program or something. So for MD degree we would be eligible but perhaps for premed we have to look into it. I tried calling Osap and they told me to call the school but im still confused about this whole thing. Did anyone else call or find out any information? Anything will be helpful

    I'm an Ontario premed student and I was approved for OSAP. You have to send a form which you can print out after you fill out your application for OSAP online from the required documents section. The signature pages are ready to print immediately but the form you send MUA is for them to confirm your expenses per semester. Im still waiting for my loan document to come and am unsure if i send it to the USA office or bring it to Nevis but Il let you know once I figure that part out :s
