Do you need help funding your dream program at Vancouver Career College? We offer a variety of services to help you find the information you need to apply for financial aid in your community.
Government Student Loans
Currently, British Columbia has a government-sponsored plan that provides loan assistance to qualified full-time students. The type and amount of assistance usually varies depending on your individual circumstances.
If you choose to fund your education through student loans, it is the College policy to apply all loan payments toward the tuition balance until the tuition and other costs are paid in full. This policy is subject to provincial regulation. Loan amounts that exceed tuition fees will be distributed directly to the student.
RBC Royal Credit Line for Students©
The Royal Credit Line for Students lets you focus on what`s important: your studies. Available to full-time and part-time students who need to finance their studies, it allows you to take charge of your financial needs in a way that fits your lifestyle.
The Royal Credit Line for Students is different from a traditional loan in that it lets you borrow funds as you need them, and pay the interest on only the amount you use, without ever having to reapply. You get all the convenience and benefits with no annual fee.
As a student, you may qualify for one of RBC`s best rates - Prime + 1%, which applies when you are at school and for a 12 month `grace period` after graduation.
Further information about financial assistance is available from the Financial Advisor at your nearest campus.
Other Financial Assistance
There may be other forms of financial aid available to you. Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for specific government grants and bursaries. Additionally, you may be eligible to receive funding through a government-sponsored agency such as HRSDC or WorkSafe.
If you have questions about funding your education, each Vancouver Career College has a Financial Advisor who can provide information about the various options available to you. Additionally, your Financial Advisor will also assist you with completing your application for whichever funding option you choose.
Also, check with your Financial Advisor to see what scholarships may be available.
Obtaining financial aid will enable you to concentrate on your Vancouver Career College training so you can embark on a rewarding career in your field.
