FINANCIAL PLANNING INFORMATION FOR YOUR FUTURE
Universal Hair Academy will work with each student to choose the best payment option.
Here are some possibilities to consider :
  • Interest-Free Payment Plans :

    Students are eligible for our in-house financing. This allows you to break down your tuition payments monthly for the length of your program with zero interest. Extended payment plans may be available for those who qualify.
  • Bank Loans :

    All national banks offer students the opportunity to receive a student loan. Some banks of an Educational Line of Credit or also a low interest loan if you have equity in home ownership. Visit your bank to determine if you are eligible. Please let us know and we will provide you with the necessary paperwork.
  • RESP Payment :

    Once the child (the RESP beneficiary) has graduated from high school and enrolled full-time or part-time in a qualifying post-secondary educational program, you can request, on his or her behalf, to withdraw money from the RESP to help pay for their studies.When you withdraw government payments or interest earned from an RESP account, that money is called an Educational Assistance Payment.Educational Assistance Payments include the interest earned in the RESP as well as any Canada Education Savings Grants, provincial grants and Canada Learning Bonds received. You can use this money to pay for post-secondary school expenses like tuition, books and transportation. Learn more visit: www.canlearn.ca and see how you can apply.
  • Canadian Government School Loan Programs :

  • Canada Student Loan Program :

    Whether you’re a full- or part-time student, you can apply for a loan through this program.

There is also a maximum amount you can receive, and that is subject to change, so consult the latest literature to review this cap. When you graduate, you will owe the loan amount plus interest back to the government.
  • Canada Student Grants Program :
