When it comes to your future, we know the importance of choosing the best financial option for you. At triOS, we offer several different options that you may go to fund your education.
Below you will find a listing of different types of funding that we are able to offer our students.
Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)
Financial assistance may be available for those who qualify. For more information visit www.osap.gov.on.ca
Employment Ontario and Second Career
The Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development administers programs, such as Second Career, to assist individuals who are unemployed or who have qualified for Employment Insurance.
Students may qualify for post-secondary education financing through Second Career or other programs managed through Employment Ontario, and our staff can help guide you to the nearest agency.

Monthly Payment Plan
A monthly payment plan can be arranged to suit your needs. Tuition and material costs are divided into monthly payments throughout your program. The first payment is due on the first day of classes, and the final payment is due approximately one month prior to completion of your studies.
Payments are interest free while you are an active student. All students are automatically eligible for monthly payment plans with no credit check or co-signer required.
EduPay – Extended Monthly Payment Plan
For students who qualify, monthly payment plans may be extended beyond the end of your student period. Newcomers to Canada can be approved with no Canadian credit history. A credit check is required and some conditions apply.
Student Line of Credit
Most major banks and credit unions offer student lines of credit to finance post-secondary education. Our Financial Aid Officers can provide you with contacts at financial institutions to find out more information.
Lifelong Learning Plan
The Canada Revenue Agency Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP) allows you to withdraw amounts from your RRSPs to finance your education for you or your spouse (or common law partner). You may withdraw up to $10,000 per year, and up to a total maximum of $20,000.
