COVID-19 Update

To promote social distancing and help with “flattening the curve”, the Brown Student Services Building and the Student Services area in the Centennial Centre are closed until further notice.

All of us in Student Services know that this is a difficult time, and that our students are looking for guidance and support. As this situation is rapidly evolving for us too, we might not have all the answers right away. But we are here to help you get through this, and we will get through this—together.

Financial Wellness

Financial Wellness

Financial wellness is one of eight components found on the Wellness Wheel.

This component describes the ability to manage your financial resources successfully. It involves not living beyond your means, budgeting effectively, and creating short and long-term goals to save, invest, and plan for the future.

The Scholarships and Student Aid Office offers advice on funding options, budgeting and debt management. They manage McGill’s bursary, loan and Work Study program based on financial need. They also disburse all provincial, federal and US government student aid funding, and help with government aid information and documentation. Additionally the Scholarships and Student Aid Office directly collaborated with students to create The Frugal Scholar Money Management Program, which is a comprehensive program designed to help students budget effectively and graduate with manageable debt.
