Our Services and COVID-19

With the progressive return to campus, and respecting public health and University directives, the Scholarships and Student Aid Office is offering a mix of virtual and in-person services including appointments with Financial Aid Counselors across the downtown and Macdonald campuses. All in-person interactions, including visits to our Front Counter, are by pre-scheduled appointments only. Contact us and we will offer you options!

Financial aid appointments are conducted by ZOOM or in-person across both campuses based on availability and students’ preferred modality. In the event of an in-person appointment, please be mindful that a procedural mask is required at all times for both student and service provider and there is a Plexiglas divider during these interactions. You will receive detailed instructions by email with your appointment confirmation including arrival time as we must maintain strict control on meeting times to avoid line-ups. Late arrivals will not be accommodated.

We continue to administer all government student financial assistance programs and are carefully tracking COVID-related changes in policies and procedures.
