U of T redesigns financial aid program to bridge gap between OSAP, total education costs


The University of Toronto has redesigned its University of Toronto Advanced Planning for Students (UTAPS) program, which provides needs-based financial aid to students. The redesign aims to be more accessible and better aligned with the costs associated with living in the Greater Toronto Area. All domestic students applying for UTAPS now must complete an application through U of T’s Need Navigator tool, which also allows students to simultaneously be considered for supports from faculties and academic divisions. U of T asserts that this change will allow UTAPS financial support to better bridge the gap between the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and total education costs.
