PAYMENT OPTIONS
Whether you are in need of financial assistance or you simply want to explore your options, feel free to contact our financial aid office at financialaid@oiart.org.

FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL STUDENT LOANS (CANADA ONLY)
Each province, in conjunction with the federal government, sponsors loans for post-secondary education. Applicants must be a Canadian citizen, meet financial requirements and be attending an educational institution that qualifies for support. The federal contribution is called the CSL (Canada Student Loan), but the name of provincial loan varies. In Ontario, it’s called OSAP (Ontario Student Assistance Program).

No matter where you live in Canada, apply for both loans through your provincial student assistance program. If the province deems you eligible, the Federal government supports that agreement by contributing a percentage of the total amount (the CSL). OIART students may qualify for both federal and provincial financial assistance.

ONTARIO STUDENTS ONLY:
For additional information about loan programs, see the OSAP or CanLearn websites:

Most major banks and credit unions in Canada offer competitive student loans and/or student lines of credit. Stop by your (or your family’s) bank to inquire about how they can help you with your educational expenses.

OIART is a registered private career college and consequently qualifies for withdrawals and payments from all RESP and scholarship trust plans.

Upon enrollment, the school will provide you with a letter that can be submitted to your RESP or scholarship trust plan.

Please note that OIART’s extended academic year is considered as a two-year program by most financial institutions.
