If a student wishes a third party to receive the financial statement, please contact the finance department. Account information will not be given to a third party without the student's consent. This includes parents, family members and sponsors.

Externally Funded Students

If the student's education is being funded by an organization or agency, the student must make available grades, finance, and enrolment and attendance information when that agency requests it.

If you have questions about putting together your finances for school, contact the student financial adviser.
