Student Financial Aid Appointments

If you have concerns about your educational finances and need to discuss them confidentially, make an appointment with one of our Student Financial Aid Officers. During your appointment, topics of discussion may include: reviewing your OSAP entitlement, applying for financial assistance, developing a personal budget, student financial planning, debt management advice or emergency financial assistance.

New Drop-In Hours for Financial Aid Counselling Appointments

Financial Aid will be offering drop in appointments on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday only between 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Check in at Student Central to request an appointment. If you have a financial emergency you can visit Student Central during regular operating hours and you will be directed to the Resource Officer.  

New: For the months of July and August, Student Financial Services will offer regularly scheduled appointments. Students must log into the Student Center to schedule an appointment time during these months.
