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, Skills & Training to foster and support student access to financial assistance.

We offer a wide variety of financial assistance to students who require funding to attend Vancouver Island University.

A sincere thank you to all individuals and organizations committed to supporting student success and access to higher education!
