Students enrolled in Expedition, Expedition-Plus, the MountainTop Certificate Program, the Diploma in Biblical Studies, the Bachelor of Religious Education or the Bachelor of Theology program may be eligible, if qualified, for assistance under one or more of the following components of the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP): the Canada Student Loans Program (CSL); the Ontario Student Loans Program (OSL).

For Ontario residents, application forms for OSAP may be obtained on the internet using Be sure to read the following document before applying:  “Applying for OSAP – Facts You Should Know”.

To ensure a completed assessment, students should apply on-line to OSAP at least 10-12 weeks prior to registration day with all required information.  Missing information will delay processing of the OSAP application and may result in students paying a late fee if their OSAP funds are late arriving.   Supporting documents must be submitted to EBC for verification.

A student receiving funding through OSAP, and failing to comply with the Active Student Participation Policy for five consecutive days of his/her scheduled classes (without valid and documented reason), will be considered to have withdrawn from the program and will no longer be eligible for OSAP funding. Failure to demonstrate Satisfactory Academic Achievement may also result in OSAP ineligibility. Further details relative to Performance Requirements as they pertain to the administration of the OSAP program are available from the Registrar.
