O.S.A.P. Program Performance Indicators

Prospective students need to have as much information as possible about post-secondary education programs to assist them in choosing the program in which they enrol. All Ontario postsecondary education institutions that offer the Ontario Student Loan (OSL) as part of the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) are required to make available the following performance indicator data for each OSL-eligible postsecondary education program:

  • Canada-Ontario Integrated Student Loan (COISL) default rates,
  • graduate employment rates and
  • graduation rates.

*Reporting year does not indicate actual data for that year.

Explanatory Notes

  1. A common methodology has been used for the calculations for all program related information provided by all colleges. However, when comparing to universities and private college’s data, differences exist between how they calculate their data. For example, graduate employment rates for college graduates are based on surveys conducted 6 months after graduation, whereas university graduate employment rates are based on surveys conducted 2 years after graduation.
  2. The reports are updated annually in November.
  3. The Approved Program Sequence Code (APS) code used in the reports is a number assigned for each approved program by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
  4. Default, employment and graduation rates are rounded to one tenth of one percent.
