Ontario students can now apply to get 30% off the cost of their tuition.
To help keep the cost of postsecondary education affordable the government is taking 30% off the average undergraduate tuition — that will save families $1600 for undergraduate university or college degree students and $730 for college diploma and certificate students this year.
That's a huge savings – and means that eligible students will enjoy the lowest tuition costs in the past 10 years.
More than 300,000 full-time undergraduate students are eligible to receive the new grant this year. Students who already receive OSAP will be automatically considered.

The amount of the grant will keep pace with any increased future costs — meaning it will always be 30% off the price of tuition.
Helping Ontario students with the price of tuition is a key part of the McGuinty government’s plan to keep postsecondary education within all families’ reach, while building the best-educated workforce in the world. That leads to a stronger economy, and creates good jobs.
