5 Ways to Help Pay for College

  1. Saving up. If you’ve saved enough to self-fund your postsecondary costs and can avoid loans etc. – good for you!
  2. Working while in school. Having part-time work while at college is a common way to help cover your costs and build your resume. Check out employment resources below.
  3. Support from family or friends. If you are fortunate to have financial support from a family member or other source... be sure to say thank you!
  4. External awards. There are many organizations in Ontario and Canada that offer support for students. Below is a list of external awards we’ve reviewed and sorted for you.
  5. Campus student employment program (CSEP). Like number 2, CSEP jobs are on-campus employment opportunities for students with demonstrated financial need. Learn more about CSEP.
