Financial Aid

Various forms of financial assistance are available to Marianopolis students. Government loans, bursaries, tuition credits and book credits are awarded based on financial need. Scholarships are awarded based on merit to recognize students' academic achievement or community involvement. 

Government Loans and Bursaries

The Quebec Government Student Loans and Bursaries Program, Aide financière aux études or AFE, gives interest-free loans based on need, not academic performance, for the duration of full-time studies. It also gives gifts of money, called bursaries. To qualify, a student must have already been awarded the maximum loan.

Apply online as early as the end of May or a minimum of four to six weeks before the start of the fall semester. The AFE’s assistance assessment simulator gives an approximate idea of how much of a loan you can expect.

Tuition Credits and Book Credits

To offset the cost of tuition and textbooks, the College provides tuition credits and book credits to students who have received assistance from the Quebec Government Student Loans and Bursaries Program, Aide financière aux études or AFE.

Apply online. The amounts awarded to you will be based on the availability of funds, your parents’ income, your program of study, and your particular situation. The amounts are renewable in future semesters, as long as you maintain your eligibility for AFE.

The amount of financial aid awarded cannot exceed the tuition cost for that year.

Entrance Scholarships
