New Scholarship Application This fall, applying for university scholarships will be so much easier! FGS is working on a brand new web application that you can access through your Student Centre. The new scholarship application will make it easier for you to start, complete and monitor the status of multiple award applications over time. Stay tuned as more details will come from your grad program in September.
International Funds Transfer: Paying your tuition fees Please ensure that the funds transferred equal the amount due that is listed in your Student Centre. If the total amount paid exceeds the amount due, the excess funds will be applied toward future tuition, or returned to the sender as we cannot refund you, the student, directly. The most efficient payment process if you don’t have a Canadian bank account is through Western Union’s GlobalPay for Students. If you are unable to make a payment using GlobalPay for Students email [email protected] for assistance.
