Government funding/student loansAs a student who is considering studying in Canada, you are expected to have enough money to support yourself during your studies. You must ensure you have enough money to pay for:

  • tuition
  • living expenses
  • transportation to and from Canada

If you are planning to attend Mount Royal on a Study Permit, you should be aware that you are not eligible to apply for Canadian government funding. If you require a loan to attend school, you should consider getting a loan through your home country.

Some countries will offer government student loans to students who attend Mount Royal. If your home country does not fund students through their government loans program, you may wish to speak to your bank or other financial institutions to secure funding.

American students: Mount Royal is not a Title IV school. Therefore, you cannot qualify for U.S. government funding if you attend Mount Royal.
