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.

The approximate cost of the Academic Bridging Program for the 2023-2024 academic session is as follows:
- $1,800 for the part-time option
- $5,500 for the full-time options
- a non-refundable $95 application fee
Bursaries and grants
Noah Meltz Grant
Students admitted to the part-time Arts option are encouraged to apply to the Noah Meltz grant, which may cover up to the full cost of tuition and provide some additional funds for books and transportation. Instructions to apply for this are provided with your Offer of Admission. 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 contact us if you have questions about fees and financial aid.
- Registered students can also apply for a Woodsworth College Grant – learn more on our Financial Aid page.
- Woodsworth College also has scholarships for Academic Bridging graduates – students are automatically considered for these upon successful completion of the program.
Students admitted to the Academic Bridging Program on a full-time basis may apply for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). This provincial financial aid program may cover educational costs and some living costs for students registered full-time. If you received student assistance in the past, this can sometimes affect your eligibility. Please contact us if you have questions about fees and financial aid.
