How does UTAPS work? Is there any rhyme or reason to how much money you get? I cannot for the LIFE of me get anybody in the administration to tell me how it works and how they calculate the need. The websites all say that they guarantee to top up your OSAP/other prov student loans up to the assessed financial need, however, people within my program (admin and students) tell me conflicting info., such as nobody gets more than $3-5K or that UTAPS will cover my full $13,000 of assessed unmet need. HALP! I’m a grad student in a program that qualifies for UTAPS assistance, if that helps. My loans just cover my tuition but not my books, living expenses, very expensive transportation costs (as a commuter), etc. etc.Thanks! 🙂
Well it’s hard to go by what other students have received just because they will not have the same financial situation as you. No two snowflakes are alike you know?… speaking of snow flakes. I was freezing my knickers off this morning and heard gossip of snow. Banish the thought.
I’m sure how they calculate UTAPs is a deep dark secret, that is taken to the grave.In true style of not knowing the embedded secrets I’m going to send you to someone else … isn’t this just how the world works
A graduate studies financial counsellor … they probably know how to get you a whole slew of money that you didn’t even know existed!
live long and prosper … or something like that,
