Financial distress

How we can help

If you are experiencing financial distress, you can schedule a confidential advising appointment with your Enrolment Services Advisor (ES Advisor). Your advisor will assess your financial situation and provide the best course of action for your situation.

If you are a graduate or post-baccalaureate student, ES Advisors are also available to help you/

ES Advisors may be able to help with the following scenarios and others as they arise:

  • An unexpected change in living situation
  • Food insecurity
  • Inability to have funds transfer out of the country
  • Illness or death in the family
  • An exceptional medical situation
