LOAN FUNDING

The MSN program is not eligible for government loan funding due to the part-time format of our program.  However, financial institutions offer assistance through student lines of credit.  Check with your preferred bank for specific terms and conditions.  U.S. students can opt for a private loan through Sallie Mae. For any questions regarding student loan funding, please contact the Financial Aid Office at awards@twu.ca
