When money is deposited into your bank account, it stops being "OSAP money". Your bank account won't differentiate between sources, it's all just money in your account.
If you had $5000 in your bank account and then receive $3000 in your September OSAP, you now have $8000 in your bank account. You can decide to use OSAP money for rent for the purposes of your own budgeting, but in practice when you actually pay for things there's no way of differentiating.
So yes, you just pay your rent the same as you normally would - from your bank account - and know that some of that money is coming from OSAP.
