The Future Ready Loyalty Card is a tool that enables Mohawk College to build relationships with members of vulnerable youth in the community who typically would not pursue postsecondary education. The card and its benefits are meant to promote affinity to the college and can help minimize financial barriers that deter participation.
Eligible participants will have the opportunity to earn up to 1,000 points by participating in identified events endorsed by Mohawk College. The Loyalty Card has no redeemable cash value and is non-transferable to any other individual or institution. In order to redeem the value of the Loyalty Card, participants must be registered at Mohawk College in an approved full- time Certificate or Diploma post-secondary program and must meet the eligibility requirements below. Any eligible individual can register for and redeem from one account only. The maximum bursary amount to be received by any individual will be $1,000. The redemption value of the Loyalty Card will be remitted to the participant in the form of a bursary.
Applying for a Card
Individuals interested in obtaining a Mohawk College Future Ready Loyalty Card can complete an application form online or complete an authorized form distributed at Loyalty Card events. A parent/legal guardian will need to sign if the card holder is under the age of 18.
An application is not a guarantee that a Loyalty Card will be approved and issued.
Mohawk will review the application to determine if it is within the context of this program. Once that determination is made, the Loyalty Card will be established and the card will be sent to the applicant. Once the card has been issued, it is the cardholder’s responsibility to register their participation in approved activities by producing their Loyalty Card during the activity.
Individuals may qualify for the Mohawk College Loyalty Card benefits if they register in an approved Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities full-time postsecondary program at any Mohawk College campus location. Programs delivered though partner institutions, apprenticeship in-school training, and any course or program activity for which the registrant is not required to pay a tuition fee, are excluded from this incentive program.

Funds will be disbursed in one semester, either first or second, following confirmation of eligibility.
Loyalty Card Expiration
The student’s loyalty points must be fully redeemed (100% of points value) at the moment they register as a first year postsecondary student. Once fully redeemed, the Future Ready Loyalty Card is rendered null and void. Loyalty points will expire two (2) years from September 30th of a student's expected high school graduating year.
College withdrawal policies apply. Loyalty Card bursary funds will be returned to the College if the student withdraws, not to the student. The Loyalty Card points have no redeemable cash value. Please visit the Mohawk College Withdrawal and Refund Policy for more details.
