Continuing education in Calgary is a large investment to make, but well worth it.

Every student is different. Therefore, paying for your education is unique to your situation. Continuing your education in Calgary, Edmonton or Lethbridge doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are some financial options to consider:
Scholarships & Bursaries
Students may qualify for specific scholarships and bursaries. If your family belongs to a particular company, union or organization, see if they offer financial aid in the form of scholarships or bursaries to qualifying family members. Be sure to visit ScholarshipsCanada for more information.
Government Student Loans
Check to see if you qualify for Federal or Provincial student loans. You can visit Student Aid Alberta for more details on the application process and the criteria you need to meet.
Consider paying from your own personal funds. This can be done by the end of the first week of your program or in monthly payments with no interest.
Bank or Credit Card Financing
Some banks or credit unions might offer school tuition financing options. Check with your bank or credit union to see if you meet their criteria for their student line of credit or loan.
For some students, they may qualify for funding from Aboriginal bands or organizations. You can talk with one of our financial aid officers at one of our many on-site centres to learn more.
