Paying for College

Paying for College

A college education is a smart investment in your future, but your studies, not your finances, should be your first priority.

There are several financial support options available that can help you pay for college. Learn more about our scholarships, bursaries, and awards, as well as other financial aid options that you can apply for.

Each year, bursaries and scholarships are available in varying amounts to students attending one of six campuses in the province.
