Deadline for 2017-18 financial assistance applications this Saturday
The deadline for 2017-18 financial assistance applications for UCC families is quickly approaching, this Saturday, Nov. 19. Current parents must apply or re-apply by the deadline so the College can ensure all returning student applications are assessed and decisions made before you’re required to make a re-registration decision early in 2017.
Financial assistance applications are processed by Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS). This third-party service continues to provide independent assessment services and makes confidential recommendations directly to the College’s financial assistance review committee. Awards are made to eligible families on the basis of assessed need and may vary from year to year. You can complete the application online at www.applefinancialservices.ca. The application fee is $100.
The College’s finance office, in collaboration with information technology services, has developed an interactive financial assistance profiler that uses current data to help day families determine whether or not they may qualify for financial assistance. The data is also available in an at-a-glance table format. Both of these tools, along with a “Frequently Asked Questions” section around the application process, are available on the Financial Assistance page of the UCC website. There’s also some very helpful guidance material on the FACS site as well.
