Educational Funding at Herzing College Winnipeg
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 and can provide advice and assistance on the following topics:
- Credit counselling
- Building a savings plan
- Repayment of loans
- Setting financial goals for the future
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.
