2) I received a letter from the National Student Loans Service Centre telling me that I have to submit my loan documents to them before November 1st .. I have absolutely no idea what they're talking about.It also says I have to provide them with my study period for next year, otherwise I will get interest charged on my current loan, but it doesn't provide an efficient way to get in touch with them. Did anybody else receive this letter as well?
Sorry if these are stupid questions, but any answers will be greatly appreciated!
The deadline is pretty last in summer... I don't know the exact day either but it should be available as of now. Like most things, the earlier you do it the better.
You only need to submit loan documents if you are taking other loans (from a bank for instance). For your next study period you can just apply to OSAP. If they give you money then you don't need to do anything (You actually sign the paper when you pick up your OSAP) but if you get rejected you have to go to SFAS and they'll give you the documents, you just sign and they will send it to OSAP.
By the way, all the contact information is at the bottom of the letter they gave you.
