Financial Assistance for International Students
Canadian student loans are not available to international students. We suggest you contact your local government’s ministry of education to inquire about available loans. Student bank loans and student lines of credit are available from most major financial institutions.
Tuition can only be paid in Canadian dollars (CAD). If it is paid in any other currency in error it will be converted into Canadian currency. Any refunds or over payment will be paid in CAD currency at the exchange rate our financial institution converted it to.
