Osap- Determining Course Load
Hey, I'm taking 31 units of study for first year engineering-1. I'm planning on taking electives in the summer. Is there a proper way of finding an accurate course load for OSAP. Thanks!

My current thoughts are, since a full course load is 37, 31/37 = 83%. But the 6 units of elective courses have to be completed before graduation, and I am taking all the required courses for engineering. So is it still considered a full work load or do i assume 83%.

I did the same thing in first year (took 31 units instead of 37) and I just filled it out as being a full course load and it was fine.

It should actually be a 83% course load since the OSAP you are applying for is only for the Fall/Winter session.
