At Waterloo, we're committed to helping you make sure that lack of money doesn't get in the way of your success.
For complete details, visit the Student Awards and Financial Aid website.
See below for additional financial aid resources at the University of Waterloo.
*Note: The University determines unmet need by using OSAP allowable costs minus the student's expected resources. Where other provincial jurisdictions include institutional bursaries as a resource, the University is not in a position to provide further bursary assistance to replace/repay loan overpayments.
If you're an Ontario resident (as defined by OSAP), OSAP provides government loans and bursaries to help you finance your education.
If you're not an Ontario resident, visit the Student Awards and Financial Aid website for links to other Canadian and U.S. loan programs.
