MSFAA-Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA)
For complete details about the Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA) forms which are a requirement of the OSAP program , refer directly to the CanLearn website.
The MSFAA replaces previous federal and provincial full-time student loan agreements. Since it's a multi-year agreement, it's more efficient and easier to use. For instance, you won't have to sign a new agreement the next time you apply for student financial assistance (unless you take a two-year break in study or establish residency in another participating province/territory).
Your responsibilities and the terms and conditions of accepting and repaying your student loans are outlined in your MSFAA. When you sign your MSFAA, you are signing two contracts: one between yourself and the Government of Canada, and one between yourself and your provincial government. Refer directly to the CanLearn website for complete details.
YOUR MSFAA MUST BE PROCESSED BEFORE FUNDS WILL RELEASE.
