Financial Aid, Scholarships & Awards

The College endeavours to provide financial support options at various stages along your journey.

As first-time applicants, Entry scholarships are available to assist with the cost of incidental fees and text books. Some scholarships also cover the additional costs incurred by programme specific equipment needs (Science, Art and Design and Culinary Arts). However, awards are not limited to entry-level students.

Toward the end of the Fall semester, current students can apply for In-house awards to assist with costs and to seek recognition for academic achievement.
