FINANCIAL AID

New And Prospective Students

For anyone pursuing tertiary education the financial challenges can be a major deterrent in the pursuit of academic excellence. While you may have made plans to pay tuition cost, there are other financial demands including cost for boarding, miscellaneous fees, and funds needed to complete projects, print course assignments, and pay for transportation. In seeking to alleviate this burden which often times affects performance, one needs to be aware of the resources available to him/her and how to access same.

Financial aid is available for prospective as well as current students. To assist you, we have compiled a list of the agencies to which you may apply in order to fund your way through college.  This list is by no means exhaustive as other funding is provided through private organisations and individuals.  For further information please speak with the Guidance Counsellor at Vaughn Hall, Celestial Drive RM 37, The Student’s Development Officer: Vaughn Hall RM or enquire at the Students’ Services Unit, also at Vaughn Hall.
