Tuition and Funding

Education requires commitment of time and money. Your enrolment advisor can help you figure out how to fit your studies within the time and financial resources God has given you. Our programs and courses are offered in a variety of delivery options, including daytime, evening, online and one-week intensive formats. And we have scholarships and bursaries to help with your tuition. Talk to your enrolment advisor today.

Student Loans

If you have done everything you can to come up with the funds you need to pay for school and still require additional funding, then we would encourage you to consider applying for a student loan. Government student loans are a good option as they remain interest free while you are a full-time student and you do not need to make any payments until you have finished school. The recommended date to apply for government student loans is June 1.


We make every effort to keep tuition fees affordable. Each student’s tuition is subsidized by the generous support of denominational constituencies across Canada.
