How grant deposit works

Activate your direct deposit:

Payment details:

The grant will be awarded in 1 or 2 payments, directly on tuition fees on the tuition payment deadline, whether on October 15 (fall) or February 15 (winter).

  • For grants of $5,000 or less, a single payment will be made.
  • For grants of $5,001 or more, two payments will be made, in equal amounts. The first half will be paid in the first semester, and the second half will be paid the following semester.
