The resourceful student seeking financial assistance has a number of avenues to explore. Here are some possible sources of student assistance however we encourage you to call the Financial Aid Department to discuss all your options.

Banks and other sources:

Many organizations or corporations have scholarships, bursaries and grants available to post secondary students available to students attending a private career college.  Check with your employer or your parentsí employers to see if they have any scholarships or bursaries available.  Student loans may be available from banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions.  As well, most students supplement their loans with prior savings and earnings from summer employment.

Student Government Loans:
Students enrolled in the Shiatsu Therapy Diploma Program may be eligible, if qualified, for assistance under one or more of the following components of the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP):

OSAP/Student Government Loans:

Apply early for prompt processing.  Applications not submitted by June will be delayed for September enrollment and may cause additional late fees as a result.

Since many of SSCís students and graduates benefit from government loans, grants, and bursaries, the SSC strongly reminds everyone that they have a responsibility to repay their loans and meet their commitments.  The viability of loan programs in many provinces, states, and countries rests upon the appreciation that everyone gains when financial commitments are honoured.


Out of province students:
If you are not a resident of Ontario, inquire about the student assistance program in your home province.
