The funding certificate is a legal form used to authorize the release of aid to you through the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC). This process is called negotiating your loan. The official name of this form is Certificate of Loan/Grant Approval and Eligibility. The funding certificate is printed by OSAP and lists each aid program and the amount you are receiving under each program. It also includes a declaration section that you must sign. By signing the declaration, you are agreeing to abide by the terms and conditions.
