Financial support


Financial guidance

St. Thomas University offers financial guidance through the office of Employment and Financial Aid. Information can be provided on Canada Student Loans, bursaries offered through the University, bursaries available through the Students? Union, scholarships, and other awards. In addition, we are able to refer students to community agencies who may be able to assist further in assessing cash flow/budgets to develop financial literacy skills. Students seeking advice regarding U.S. Student Loans and information are able to work with the International Student Coordinator who oversees this program. Financial Services is an effective resource for First Nations students who may be receiving band funding. First Nations students who have a disability may also qualify for Canada Study Grants. Support in that process would typically be provided through Accessibility Services after a student had notified that office that they are interested in receiving academic accommodations at St. Thomas University.
