The Student Awards Office provides scholarships, bursaries and awards information to entering and continuing undergraduate students, linking them with valuable financial resources for their post-secondary studies.

Students should review the cost of attending university from their very first term through to the completion of their program. Paying for a university education is ultimately the responsibility of the student. To access financial assistance, make the necessary applications well before the start of the academic year. Be aware of the application deadlines for grants, awards and government student loans. Although each student’s needs and resources differ, the University provides a list of general fees and expenses. Refer to the Tuition and General Fees section in this Calendar for details.
