Contact their offices to obtain requirements and availability. For more information on possible funding through Workers Compensation Board of Canada or Vocational Rehabilitation, contact your worker.
Every year, the Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche, de la Science et de la Technologie du Québec, enables some 140 000 Québec students who have insufficient financial resources, to pursue full-time secondary school level vocational training, college or university studies.
QUÉBEC’S LOANS AND BURSARIES PROGRAM
Initial student financial assistance under the Loans and Bursaries Program comes as a loan that you repay once you have finished your studies. All of the programs offered at Herzing College offer eligible students an opportunity to qualify for student loans, and some programs also offer bursaries. To learn more, click to browse the Quebec government web site or contact our Educational Funding department.
GAP FUNDING ASSISTANCE (QUEBEC)
Our goal is to help make our student’s educational funding affordable. We’ll work with every student to uncover every available funding option. Despite our best efforts, sometimes there isn’t enough funding available to pay full tuition. Herzing College offers qualified students a flexible gap funding payment plan for tuition not covered by other funding options.
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 some internship employers to offer qualified students a weekly expense assistance while on internship.
Thank you to participating employers.
