The Financial Aid & Award Office is committed to supporting students in their search for financial assistance, both in the form of loans and awards, and in helping students to make the best use of these resources. This Office works closely with the faculties and the Student Services branch of the Ministry of Advanced Education to foster and support student access to financial assistance.

They offer a wide variety of financial assistance to students who require funding to attend Vancouver Island University. See their Important Tips for Planning  for funding opportunities and important deadlines.
