Fees and Financial Aid
As an Academic Bridging student, you will have access to financial aid that can help cover some of your expenses. Several financial aid options are explained below. We encourage you to speak with an advisor at Woodsworth College about any financial challenges you are facing.
The approximate cost of the Academic Bridging Program for the Fall/ Winter 2020-2021 session is as follows:
- $1,775 for the part-time program
- $5,200 for the full-time program
- a non-refundable $95 application fee
Bursaries and grants
Noah Meltz Program
If you are in the part-time program, we encourage you to apply to the Noah Meltz Special Bursary Program, which can cover educational expenses and some additional funds for books and transportation. You should apply even if you don’t think you are eligible. If you received student assistance in the past, this can sometimes affect your eligibility. Please let us know if this is the case.
- Woodsworth College also has grants for Academic Bridging Program students. You do not need to apply as you will be automatically assessed upon admission.
- You can also apply for a Woodsworth College Grant. Learn more on our Financial Aid page.
If you are enrolled in the full-time Academic Bridging Program, you may apply for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). This program may cover educational costs and some living costs if you are studying on a full-time basis. If you received student assistance in the past, this can sometimes affect your eligibility. Please let us know if this is the case.
