Can't get osap after getting kicked out
So my first wasn't a good one to say the least but I've been reinstated this year.
the circumstances that prevented me from studying also made it impossible for me to pay my tuition (I didn't apply for osap then) and one thing led to another and my account went to collections. After that I paid the balance(some 9k) and had 0 bucks on my student account.
This year after getting reinstated , i applied for osap , I was told by sfas that I have to pay the entire balance, some $11k, before I could get fully registered. So now I can't apply for osap unless I pay the entire balance.
My parents are separated and I can't really ask relatives for money. Also no bank loan cause of the collections thing.
Is there a way out for me or is my career over before it even started? Anyone at Mac to whom I can beg to let me continue?
Please help :(
