Educational Funding at Herzing College Ottawa
Your education is one of the most important investments you’ll make in your lifetime, and we realize that you may need assistance in paying for tuition. Our Educational Funding Department will help you to navigate through the different funding options that may be available to you.
Financial assistance may be available for those who qualify. To learn more about the Ontario Student Assistance Program go to https://osap.gov.on.ca
Self-funding all, or part of your education, is one of the best ways to invest in your future. Perhaps you’ve set aside money over the years to invest in an education (RRSP,RESP), or you’re planning to work while in school. Your family and relatives can also be a source of financial support to consider. Arrangements may be made with Herzing College’s Educational Funding Department for full, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly payment of your tuition education.
Student Line of Credit
A Student Line of Credit gives you access to funds that you can use to pay for tuition and other expenses. With most student line of credit you only have to apply once, and the money is there for you to borrow as you need it. And, in most cases there are no annual or monthly fees – you pay interest only on what you borrow.
There are many Student Line of Credit programs offering a variety of specially designed programs.
• Bank of Montreal – BMO Student Line of Credit.
• TD Canada – Trust Student Line of Credit.
• RBC Royal Bank – Royal Line of Credit for Student.
• Scotiabank – ScotiaLine Personal Line of Credit for Students.
• CIBC – Education Line of Credit.
Internship Expense Assistance Program
Internship is a rewarding experience that provides students with real-life experience and hands on training. We recognize that many of our students going out on internship incur various expenses such as travel, child care, professional clothing purchase etc. In an effort to alleviate some of these expenses, Herzing College has partnered with internship employers to offer qualified students a weekly expense assistance while on internship.
Eligible students that enroll in a participating program will receive a minimum of a $100 weekly expense assistance while on internship. Take advantage of the internship expense assistance program today and click here for more info.
