Various forms of financial assistance are available to incoming Marianopolis students. Bursaries, tuition credits, book credits and government loans are awarded based on financial need. Scholarships are awarded based on merit to recognize students' academic achievement or community involvement. Our Financial Aid Clerk is here to help students understand the different types of assistance we offer, so that finances need never be a barrier to attending the College.

Tuition Credits and Book Credits

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

Prospective students who apply for a credit for the upcoming fall semester and who are admitted to the College will receive an email letting them know whether they will receive the credit. The email will arrive before they must confirm whether they will accept the College’s admissions offer. 

Apply online before 5 p.m. on February 25, 2022. If you miss the deadline you will have another opportunity to apply during the first two weeks of class in the fall semester. Book credits can be requested on this same application form by indicating "book credit" in the special circumstances section. The amount of the book credit is based on your program of study and will be communicated to you.


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.
