If it’s the right program for you, you might be wondering how you can finance your training in order to move on to this next step in your career. Fortunately, there are many financial aid options available for those looking to get back to school in Ontario and Canadian Business College can assist students in finding the one that works best for them.
Here’s a quick overview of some of the options available for prospective students looking to finance an accounting and payroll program in Ontario.
Pay Tuition in Monthly Installments with the Interest-Free Payment Plan
One option that might be well-suited to students who still expect to have a regular income while completing their studies is Canadian Business College’s interest-free payment plan. Students have the option of paying their tuition for diploma programs in monthly installments, with no interest for the duration of their program.
The Lifelong Learning Plan is a Great Option for RRSP Holders
For those with a registered retirement savings plan (RRSP), the Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP) is a great option for financing your own education or that of a partner.
The LLP is a Government of Canada initiative that allows you to withdraw amounts from your RRSP to finance full-time training or education for either yourself, or your spouse or common-law partner. You might be eligible for the LLP if you own an RRSP, are a Canadian resident, and are not currently in a repayment period for a previous withdrawal from your RRSP.
OSAP Offers Grants and Loans to Help Finance Your Accounting Program
The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a financial aid program that offers both grants and loans to help residents of Ontario (including Canadian citizens, permanent residents and protected persons) pay for college or university, including those training for payroll administrator careers.
The amount that a student can get depends on their education expenses, their course load, and their personal financial situation, and can help pay for tuition, books and supplies, student fees, living expenses, and even child care, for students with children.
Second Career Helps Laid Off Workers Train for Work in a New Field
If you’ve been laid off and haven’t been able to find work, or if you’ve been laid off and are working a temporary job to cover costs, you might be eligible to receive funding for an accounting program through Second Career. This program is designed to help those who have been laid off gain the skills needed to set off on a new career. With Second Career, you can apply for up to $28,000 in funding to help pay for tuition, books, transportation and living costs.
