Financial Counselling

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.

Hours for Financial Aid Counselling Appointments

Financial Aid will be offering scheduled appointments on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday only between 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  To book an appointment online, please log onto your Student Center, under "Student Services Links" on the right hand side of your screen, select "Financial Aid Counselling". Appointments are booked one week in advance; new appointments are open on Thursday afternoons, around 2pm, for the following week. Students are only able to book one appointment in a seven day cycle.

*Please note that telephone appointments are available for students who are unable to make it into the office.
