This session shows you how to fill out the Student Financial Profile (SFP). Find out when to apply, how to apply and how the Student Financial Profile can help you! This tutorial is helpful for undergraduate and graduate students who are looking for:
- Bursary assistance,
- Campus work opportunities like Work/Study or RAY, and
- Applying for in-course scholarships and awards
There is also a step by step online tutorial.
This is a useful session for Year 3 and Year 4 students who are coming to the end of their degree and may have some questions regarding repaying their OSAP loan, paying off their student account, and finding some useful tips on funding for graduate studies or professional programs. Topics to be discussed include loan repayment plans, funding options, application processes and tips on where to find information.
This session will focus on the awards and bursaries that are directed to students with disabilities. It will give students specific dates, deadlines and Web sites that may be of interest to those looking to apply for financial assistance. We will also explore the meaning of being a part-time student and look at some programs through OSAP available to those with disabilities. As well, this session will briefly look at the Student Financial Profile and walk students through a paper version of the application, demonstrating how to apply. Students who are registered with the Counselling and Development Centre are encouraged to attend.
Are you finding that you don’t have enough money at the end of the month? Are you living pay cheque to pay cheque? Would you like to know some techniques to better allocate your money? This session will provide students with the tools to budget their finances for the academic year. We will look at what resources are coming in (OSAP, awards, part-time jobs etc.), break down what types of expenses students have (tuition, rent, food etc.) and balance the books! Also, we will look at what resources are available to assist students with their direct education costs.
