There are several options available if you require assistance in funding your studies:
Students need to apply through Mosaic. Click on the Student Centre tab. Under Finances, click on the "Apply for Financial Aid" link.
Fall: August 10 to August 24, 2015
Winter: September 1 to November 30, 2015
Spring: December 15 to March 31, 2016
Students need to pay for the course in full. If selected for the bursary, the money will be applied to the account. Once the money is applied to your student account, a refund cheque will be issued by Student Accounts and Cashiers. It may take 1-3 weeks to receive the refund cheque. If Direct Deposit has been set up in Mosaic prior to receiving the Bursary, the refund will be issued via direct deposit.
To view your account: Log into Mosaic. Navigate to the Student Centre section. Under Finances, use the dropdown box to select Account Activity. In your account, you will see if you have received the Bursary, the amount of the Bursary and the date the Bursary was refunded to you once the refund has been processed.
- Many employers offer tuition assistance programs. Ask your manager or HR department if your company offers a program.
Most banks offer student loans that have attractive interest rates and require you to pay interest only, until after the completion of your program.
- If you are studying on a full-time basis, the Lifelong Learning Plan allows you to withdraw from your RRSP to pay for your program.
- For Canadian students interested in government funding or subsidized training options (e.g. Second Career, Canada-Ontario Job Grant) please contact your local Employment Service Centre.
