Notes Regarding Fees
These days a university education requires a substantial financial commitment. After reviewing your education related expenses, you may find that you need additional funds to pursue your education. If that is the case, you may be eligible for financial assistance. The Student Awards & Financial Aid office coordinates various programs for Waterloo students with financial needs. These include government and University of Waterloo financial aid programs - some of which are non-repayable. The following are some examples of financial assistance, with links to the Student Awards & Financial Aid website for information. If you have questions about your situation, please visit the Student Awards and Financial Aid website or call 519-888-4567, ext. 33583.
Canadian Senior Citizens Bursaries
All Canadian citizen students, 65 years of age and over, receive a bursary equivalent to the cost of tuition for degree credit courses. To be eligible for the bursary, students must have reached the age of 65 by the beginning of the term (i.e., September 1 for the fall term; January 1 for the winter term; May 1 for the spring term). To claim this bursary, you must submit proof of age (e.g., photocopy of birth certificate) along with a signed Promissory Note. See the Finance website for instructions, including due dates. Seniors will be responsible for all other fees associated with their course or registration.
Student Awards & Financial Aid administers numerous undergraduate scholarships and awards. These awards are based on academic achievement and may include other selection criteria such as extracurricular involvement, leadership, etc. Many are awarded automatically based on year-end marks or on marks in a particular course or area. Others require the student to complete an application form. For details about scholarships and awards, including a list of those available and how they are awarded, please review the Student Awards & Financial Aid site.
