Financial Aid Office

The Financial Aid Office helps students work with their government’s student financial aid program in order to pursue their studies at Cégep Heritage College. One very important thing to remember, regardless of the program you are applying to:  you must submit your application every year, at least six weeks before the beginning of the semester, in order to receive the funding in time for the start of term. 

Government Student Loans and Bursaries Program

You may apply to the Québec loans and bursary program for assistance during your full-time studies.

This program helps students with the cost of their basic needs. Some students may have to cut down on non-essential life expenses to make ends meet and/or obtain part-time employment.  The amount awarded to students is based on their annual income and on their parents' or spouse’s annual income, as applicable.

If you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident from another province visit National Student Loans Service Centre for information about government financial aid.

“I am grateful to Loran for the people it's brought into my life, the experiences it’s allowed me to have, the times it’s pushed me outside of my comfort zone and forced me to grow, the times the community has picked me up when I was struggling, and for giving me the confidence and courage to step away from the traditional path and know that I will land on my feet.”

Daniel Brown (2015 Loran Scholar)
