Financial Aid and Student Awards

Get Help Paying for College

Our Financial Aid staff are available to answer your questions, guide you with applications and forms, provide information about assistance programs and listen to your concerns about financing your education. We can help you in-person, or by telephone, e-mail, fax or mail.

We administer federal and provincial student loan programs, scholarships and bursaries, which include general and program-related bursary funding from money donated by the College, individuals, companies and other organizations.

In partnership with the provincial government, Financial Aid administers the Student Access Guarantee, which ensures students in financial need have assistance to cover the cost of their tuition, books and mandatory college fees. This financial aid is provided through bursaries, scholarships and campus employment programs.
