Financing Your Education

Wondering about the costs of university and options to help pay for it?  Our ‘University Fees and Financial Planning’ presentation helps you learn about the costs and financial resources associated with university studies. In the presentation, we review University of Toronto Mississauga fees, fee payment and fee deferral options. The presentation also reviews sources of financial assistance such as OSAP and the Ontario Tuition Grant, University of Toronto grants, scholarships and awards, RESPs, and other resources to help you and your family create a financial plan from first year to graduation. You can access the presentation here.
