Student Financial Assistance has launched a new video/presentation as well as virtual Question and Answer Sessions that students can register for if they have general questions regarding student financial assistance.  Note that these are not intended for file specific questions.  Individuals can register by visiting their website and following the relevant links. Prior to registering, student financial assistance is asking the individual to watch a 14-minute pre-recorded presentation titled Student Financial Assistance for Full-Time Post-Secondary Students.


This presentation is really well built. It explains the funding programs, eligibility, application and assessment process related to student financial services. A nice resource to share with your students.
