Additional information for Boréal students

Thanks to OSAP Express, you do not have to appear in person to receive your financial aid, because the process is automatic. Approximately five days after the start of classes, the money you receive from OSAP will be deposited directly into your account or transferred directly to Collège Boréal towards your tuition fees if you have completed the following steps:

  • your OSAP application is complete, that is to say you have :
    • verified the application status online
    • submitted all supporting documentation to the financial aid office (when necessary)
    • submitted your Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA) at a designated Canada Post outlet (Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement and NSLSC).
  • you have paid your tuition fees in full; OR
  • you have paid the minimum $500 deposit and filled out Collège Boréal’s Tuition Fee Agreement (Entente des droits de frais de scolarité);
  • if you have chosen Option 2 in the Tuition Fee Agreement (Tuition Payment per Semester with Deposit), your financial aid will be deposited directly into your bank account and you will be required to pay your tuition prior to the deadline listed in the student portal.
  • if you have chosen Option 3 in the Tuition Fee Agreement (Direct Tuition Payment by OSAP), part of your financial aid will be transferred directly to Collège Boréal to pay your tuition fees as long as this was indicated during the OSAP application process. That is to say that you did NOT check this option: img-ministere.
